It is "buyer beware" when contracting a home repair or renovation. There are shady contractors who take shortcuts, use shoddy building practices or employ a Band-Aid approach to repair work, often leaving homeowners in dangerous situations or out more money in the long run. Renovation expert Mike Holmes believes in doing a job right the first time and is making it his mission to expose poor, substandard workmanship in the building industry with his internationally successful show Holmes on Homes, now on DIY Network and HGTV! In each episode, Mike rescues homeowners from repair and renovation disasters. Uncovering problems from plumbing and electrical to carpentry and roofing, he shows how the botched job should have been completed, fixes everything properly and helps homeowners make more informed decisions in the future.
