Go behind the scenes with home improvement guru Mike Holmes and the crew on the shoot of HGTV's hit competition series All American Handyman.
Mike Holmes offers sound advice on one of the most important decisions in planning a renovation: choosing a contractor.
Mike Holmes talks about the importance of written contracts when it comes to home improvement, repairs and remodeling.
Mike Holmes is back, doing what he does best: making it right. He's picking up where he left off with his hit series Holmes on Homes and Holmes Inspection and cranking it up several notches. In this series, Mike plans to expand the meaning of "Make It Right" outside the residential domain and outside his own comfort level. The new stories are not just about typical renovation rip-offs; they're heart-wrenching people stories too. In this series, Mike doesn't just want to make a difference in the home, he wants to make people's lives better. In Holmes Makes it Right, Mike will be taking on disasters that would make other contractors run — the kinds of circumstances where you don't just need a contractor, you need a miracle.
