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.

I hope you enjoyed #Holmes911 on CTV Life Channel and #HolmesAndHolmes on HGTV and DIY Network.

The work we do is so much bigger than just my kids and I. Without the support of our amazing tradespeople who work tirelessly on our job sites, we wouldn’t be able to give some hope back to our wonderful homeowners.

Some of our trades have been with us for many years and too many renovations to count - so I wanted to make sure we took some time to shout out the crew behind the scenes who help US Make It Right.

By now, you should all recognize my buddy, Frank. He’s been with us since the beginning - and even throughout his health troubles over the last couple years, he’s stuck by us to be our pro when it comes to all things electricity.

What you might not realize is that he’s now working with a great new group of electricians under the DeVille Group - and together with them, they’ve helped make sure our recent projects are properly wired and to code. Thanks for the help, team!

It’s a proud moment for any parent when their kids want to follow in the footsteps. I learned a lot from my dad, he was a jack of all trades. Sherry didn’t think construction was her thing, and Mike wanted to be a firefighter. But they did end up joining my crew and haven’t looked back since.
Holmes and Holmes is back on HGTV (US) tonight with Mike and Sherry running the job?

When we remodelled Jake's bathroom we had to keep accessibility in mind. Should he ever fully require the use of a walker or a wheelchair, we needed a bathroom that could adapt to those needs. This bathroom with floating shelves, step-free entry, and lots of room to maneuver should give him plenty of space. #HolmesAndHolmes Schluter-Systems North America

I always recommend potential buyers spend the few hundred dollars to have an inspection performed, so as a homeowner, why would you want to bother with one? A pre listing home inspection can also help alert you to any big red flags in the home that are in need of repair. Knowing about these issues before you list means you can address them ahead of time, protecting the value of your listing price. Mike Holmes Inspections

Thinking of the Bryant family. Heart goes out to them.

As a builder, you can address radon entry during the construction stage. This is worth a read. @RadonCorp

When clearing snow, make sure you're focus on any fire hydrants, vents, and around your foundation to prevent basement leaks. Concrete is porous, and when it starts to melt, it can seep into the foundation.

Who says a healthy home also can't look good? Nice to see @effecthomes understand AND be recognized for it as a winner of the Canadian Home Builders Association's Green Home of the year. Check this out to learn more:
