Coming to Channel 4 in November is Don't Blame The Builders and we all know getting the builders in – like your wedding day or having a baby – can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. Each year, more than 100,000 building jobs in the UK go horribly wrong. As a nation we’re always quick to blame the builders, but is it always their fault?

Don’t Blame the Builders explores how domestic building problems arise when builders from hell meet their match in homeowners from hell. In each episode, building expert Jeff Howell, mediates between a builder and a client at war. His aim – to bring the two sides together and get the job back on track.

What do you do when your builder stops taking your calls, has walked off with your £45,000 renovation project, or left your dream home uninhabitable?

With the owners at breaking point, it’s down to Jeff to help overcome their problems and get the job finished.
