HOLMES MAKES IT RIGHT

Holmes Makes It Right is about renovating, but this is not your typical renovation rip-off series. Mike will be taking on disasters that other contractors would run away from. The kinds of circumstances where you don’t just need a contractor, you need a miracle.

Mike is done inspecting and is putting his tool belt back on to get his hands dirty once again. He is getting back to the kind of work he did before there ever was a TV show— Helping people, Making It Right

I’ve seen a lot of basements where the structure is compromised, either by a contractor or the homeowner. Where it hasn’t been done right, it can cause problems. The worst case I ever saw was a cinder-block foundation where someone had dug down and cut through the foundation wall to put in a door to the basement.
When they dug down and put in cinder block for the walkout, they didn’t waterproof the foundation properly, and they compacted the dirt when they pushed the wall back in. Then when water got into the new foundation, it froze and pushed the wall inwards so much that the house needed to be supported temporarily until a new foundation wall could be put in. Doing something wrong in the first place-even something so minor-can cause a catastrophe of financial issues and headaches down the road.

Hairline cracks are not an indication of a major issue, however if the cracks are large, you should have an expert come out to check it.
Here are red flags to watch out for when house hunting.

It is a big deal to kick your contractor off the job. You can’t do that for a minor mistake like painting a wall the wrong colour. That’s not why you terminate the contractor.

It better be for something a lot bigger, like not complying with building or safety bylaws, being late on the schedule by a significant percentage of the original plan, or billing more than agreed for an extra—without an acceptable explanation.

Look at the contract and ask, “Has the contractor actually violated any of the limitations?”

What’s the Difference Between a Heat Pump and a Furnace?
The major difference is that furnaces burn fuel (oil, gas or propane) to generate heat, while heat pumps move heat by using electricity.

I love drinking my Reverse Osmosis (RO) water. Quality and taste are so much better than regular tap water. This system reduces trace elements, heavy metals, & bacteria —I'm so glad I had this drinking system installed at my place 👍 #HolmesApproves @KineticoHQ https://t.co/xhKVIn8jgF

Do you do your own research on materials for your home reno, or do you completely rely on your contractor’s recommendations ? Perhaps a bit of both?

You might be tempted to do your own electrical, but it's important to hire a licensed electrical contracting business to do the work. I've seen some pretty bad electrical & if done wrong your life could be put at risk @homeandsafety #ElectricalSafety https://t.co/ni6Zv4wX11

We just ordered the EcoQube (intelligent radon detector) for a new project. It is always monitoring to provide accurate radon levels, so I am leaving this with my homeowner. Love innovation and new technology👍 https://t.co/YOeqBpdI9W
