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.

On every job we do, even if we had no reason to touch their electrical set up (and let’s be honest, we always have a reason to ensure their set up is in good shape), we always, always, ALWAYS install whole home surge protection to their electrical panel.

When an electrical surge happens, it can cause serious harm to the appliances and electronics inside a home. This is why we install whole home surge protection.

It's something I believe should be in every home. Then, in case a surge does occur - you’ll be protecting your expensive electronics and appliances. I once had a surge take out most of the electronics in my home, and trust me, it wasn’t cheap to replace them.

So why do you want whole home surge protection? Here’s why:

👉 Power strips can help protect your laptops and televisions, but you won’t be protecting every appliance in your home this way.

👉 A home contains thousands of dollars in electronics and appliances that require protection.

👉 A surge can strike out of nowhere - it can come from thunderstorms, or if work’s being done to the utility grid, or when the power comes back on after an outage

👉 Even low-level surges over time can add up to do big-time damage to all the expensive appliances in your home

I’ve been working with Eaton's Electrical Sector for years - I know that they stand for quality. With their whole home surge protection in place, we know that we’re leaving our homeowner's electrical setups safe and secure from any surges. After I lost all my gadgets to a surge, I installed one on my panel too.

Even the most careful homeowners might get tripped up when shopping for a home. They may get taken in by the big yard for hosting BBQs, and miss signs of water intrusion because of bad grading next to the foundation. Buying a home is probably the most expensive investment you’ll ever make - but it can be difficult to know if you’re making the right decision beyond what your gut tells you.

Tell me - when you bought your home, what was the biggest mistake you made during the process? No judgement here, I’m genuinely curious.

Reveal day is my favourite day on the job. Nothing beats taking somebody’s house and making it a home again. To me, nothing feels better.

How can you prepare for legal challenges during a reno? It starts with a WRITTEN contract with a construction timeline and payment schedule based on project milestones NOT on dates. Having clear guidelines protects you as a homeowner.
