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.

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to travel to Tennassee and help a wonderful homeowner get a brand new asphalt roof thanks to Atlas Roofing - Shingles and Scotchgard. We filmed the entire process so you can see what's involved with installing an asphalt roof, and some Holmes tips of course.
You can catch the episodes on Thursday at 3 pm EST on my Facebook page!

A bathroom is a renovation that you don’t want to cut corners on. All materials need to be selected carefully and with a lot of research to ensure it’s watertight. https://t.co/qoE7IBjzHn

Recessed lighting also makes a lot of sense for the bathroom. You can even have them installed above your shower – as long as you get the right kind. https://t.co/NmccozcdWC

Levelling the floors today. Don't skip this step (and primer) when installing a new floor and you notice unevenness.
This self levelling cement is from @Sika https://t.co/yz18DKX1Ui

Over the yrs, I have seen a change in the trades, and the number of women involved grow. When I first started, I was 21 years old, and one of the few women I knew involved in construction. In fact, I never saw any women on sites. Was definitely daunting. #endskilledtradesstigma https://t.co/FD3ZeDuJpr
