HGTV has made an addition to its winter programming season, slating the premiere of the new series Home Inspector Joe for this January.

Produced by RIVR Media, the series follows New York home inspector Joe Mazza as he tours properties with prospective buyers and searches for the hidden perils and pitfalls beneath the surface of what could be their dream homes.

“Joe is the fearless superhero we all want when we’re buying a house,” said Jane Latman, president of HGTV & Streaming Home Content. “It’s easy to fall in love with a home’s potential, but with his signature humor and heart, Joe makes sure his clients’ eyes are wide open as they look to create their dream home.”

A 20-year veteran of the NYC construction business, Mazza has seen more than his share of properties that are the home-buying equivalent of putting lipstick on a pig.

“Inspecting a home is incredibly important because you’re spending probably all your money on that house,” said Mazza in a 2019 interview with USA Today, where he stressed the importance of inspections in the negotiating process. “After a home inspection, I give the list of items that are wrong… The buyer and their agent will then go to the drawing table and bring it to the sellers and negotiate pricing from that point forward.”

In the premiere episode of Home Inspector Joe, Mazza and his designer Noel Gatts help buyers Matt and Giovanna in their dream-home hunt by investigating two potential properties for urgent repair requirements, and map out renovation plans that will fit the clients’ needs and budget.

Home Inspector Joe debuts on HGTV on Wednesday, January 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
