HOLMES ON HOMES

Each week, construction and renovation expert Mike Holmes visits unlucky families who have been swindled or abandoned during their home improvement projects.

Mike uncovers shoddy construction methods, improper techniques, and down right rip-offs. While we watch Mike uncover and fix the problems, he explains how homeowners can safeguard themselves from these unscrupulous builders and dishonest contractors.

Throughout the series, viewers learn valuable lessons for their own home renovation projects such as the importance of a good contract, proper payment terms and what good craftsmanship should really look like.

Have you ever had your electrical inspected? A T&T or test and trouble shoot will have a licensed electrical contractor take a look at your setup and test every plug and connection to check whether it's still in good shape.

I recommend having this done every couple of years - or while you're doing a renovation. Make sure you choose a LICENSED electrical contractor.

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 👍

An energy audit assesses how much energy your home consumes and helps you find solutions to make your home more efficient. It goes a long way to showing you specific trouble spots in your home that are energy sinks that if corrected, can lead to some monthly savings.

I really do recommend hiring a professional to do a full assessment of your home. Depending on the size of your home, it will likely cost you along the lines of $300-500, but they’ll be able to paint a much bigger picture of your home’s efficiency (or lack of it).

A dripping tap is more than just annoying—it sends your money down the drain. If yours is leaking one drop per second, you are wasting over 2,500 gallons of water per year.

Low water pressure is a common problem, and there are lots of reasons for it—some small and some big.

#Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It’s a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas so the only way to know how much is in your home is through testing.

There are a few options to consider when installing a drinking water filtration system in your home. I like a reverse osmosis system. Utilizing high pressure, water is forced through a semipermeable membrane that only allows pure water molecules to flow through. @KineticoHQ
