SHERRY'S STORY

Sherry’s Activities

Contractor, TV Host & Passionate DIYer!

Sherry Holmes grew up watching, working, and playing with her dad, Mike Holmes. As early as 16-years-old she began working behind-the-scenes of Mike’s breakout series, Holmes on Homes®. In 2008, Sherry decided to strap on her own tool belt and traveled to New Orleans to help build a hurricane- and flood-resistant home for a victim of Hurricane Katrina, in Holmes in New Orleans.

Since then, she has been a permanent member of Mike’s Make it Right crew, first on Holmes Inspection, then on Holmes Makes It Right,
and now on Holmes: Next Generation, on DIY Network. Fans can also see Sherry alongside her brother Mike Jr. and dad Mike Holmes in the latest season of Holmes and Holmes on DIY Network and the new Canadian series Holmes 911 on CTV Life. Up next, Sherry joins the cast of HGTV’s Home to Win.

Holmes Family Effect, for CTV, has just wrapped and will air in 2021. It’s a family affair as Sherry, Micheal, and Mike Holmes, help young people whose mission is to make a difference and bring positive change in the lives of people and their community.

“If you’re thinking about getting into the trades, go for it! If it’s your passion learn as much as you can. It might be harder than you think to make your mark, but I promise you it will be worth it. It just might change your life”

As a big supporter of youth who wants to get into the trades, Sherry continues the family support to Skills Canada and World Skills. She also mentors young women through Conestoga College’s Jill of All Trades and acts as an Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity’s Annual Women Build Event, a program that calls on women to help build stronger, safer communities.

Through public speaking, media appearances and her social media influence, Sherry continues to change the face of Canada’s skilled trades workforce, demonstrating that women can bring an entirely new dimension to the construction industry that makes it fundamentally stronger from the ground up.

I would love a pool in my house, but for now I drive over to use my dad's. Swimming pools are a lot of maintenance, but in my opinion they are a good investment because you spend more time with your family and friends. Last summer when the world was shut down, my dad's deck and his pool were where we would meet with those in our bubbles.
This podcast episode is a good one for anyone considering installing a hot tub or swimming pool. By the end of this podcast, my dad decided he was going to put in a new pool 😂

In this bathroom reno we made sure the homeowners got their own little spa oasis. A niche provides room for storage, and a shower bench is just an awesome experience for a relaxing steam shower. Love the window bringing in some sun. ☀️
For a shower niche you can get pretty creative with the size and style. We are putting in a different patterned tile in the niche for contrast. You can buy prefabricated shower niches or build them custom.
The orange tape you are seeing is KERDI-BAND- a waterproofing strip to seal butt joints and floor/wall connections 👍

This is a great product to use for air sealing and insulating. It is a poluurethane foam, and can be used to seal your windows and doors or any cavities, cracks, joints, pipe penetrations, etc. It's called Sika Boom and my window installer Dom uses this on all of our jobs.
Its low expansion- helps prevent bowing or warping of window frames.
There are two versions available. Sika Boom AS comes with a dispensing straw, and SIka Boom AS PRO is gun-applied. You can see both in the video.

You can find this at your local retailer or on Amazon. Here is how it works:
👉Shake the can well for about 60 seconds before use.
👉Turn it upside down and screw onto the valve of
your dispenser gun. Gently press the trigger to purge any air from the gun before applying.
👉The can should remain upside down at all times while dispensing.
👉Clean the tool after use (I use the Sika cleaner)

Sealing cracks and cavities and windows and doors will help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature AND save you $ on your energy bills 👍
