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.

Change your furnace filters regularly.
I recommend changing your filter every 90 days at minimum, and monthly in the winter. If the air filter is dirty, your indoor air is dirty. It’s a good habit to change them monthly – at least in the summer and winter.
Neglecting small home maintenance tasks will cause you grief in the long run.

Test your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, and all ground-fault circuit interrupters. Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors should be tested monthly

You know I am not a fan of complicated DIY jobs, and this is one of them. A retaining wall may be a small part of your yard, but it’s got a big job to do.
If you want to build a retaining wall yourself, go for a shorter retaining wall height.

Throughout my career, I have seen some really crappy tiling jobs and it’s usually because the contractor didn’t level the floor. When it comes to flooring what the finish looks like is largely a result of what’s underneath it.
