"Ask This Old House" Season 13 on PBS follows expert contractors as they travel the country to tackle all sorts of home improvement projects. Kevin O'Connor, Richard Trethewey, Roger Cook and Tom Silva answer homeowner questions with house calls and will "go anywhere and do anything."

Season 12

In Season 12, "Ask This Old House" will air a special severe weather episode in which Richard travels to Okla. to install a tornado safe room, Tom visits a lab where hurricane window protection is tested, and a standby generator is installed to ensure that a homeowner never loses power again. Then, special guest Jim Cantore, Weather Channel Meteorologist, stops by the workshop to discuss how homeowners should prepare for all sorts of severe weather threats.

In addition, the crew travels to Fort Mill, S.C.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Santa Fe, N.M.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Seattle, Wash.; Biloxi, Miss.; Mobile, Ala.; and New Orleans, La. and also tackles home improvement problems close to the show's home base near Boston. Kevin, Tom, Roger, and Richard once again attempt to figure out "What Is It?" during the fan-favorite segment in which the guys try to stump each other with strange-looking tools.

Season 13

In Season 13, the series devotes an entire special episode to examining the serious drought that has affected a third of the country. Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore shares some staggering statistics, while our experts provide affordable solutions for coping with these unprecedented conditions. During the episode, Richard and Kevin visit Las Vegas and Lake Mead, the largest manmade reservoir in the US whose water levels are at an all-time low.

Other stops over the course of the season include Orlando, where Roger explains how to care for backyard citrus trees in the face of a disease that's killing 20-30% of trees statewide, and Kansas City, where the guys help a homeowner install a natural gas line for a new grill (making time to sample some local KC BBQ as well!). The team also visits San Francisco, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Maine and West Virginia, continuing to help make beautiful spaces for everyday homeowners.

The popular "What Is It" franchise, the fan-favorite segment in which the guys try to stump each other with strange-looking tools, returns with some new surprises this season. A NASA astronaut from the International Space Station makes a guest appearance, bringing along a tool that's literally out of this world.
