About the show

Holmes Inspection shines a spotlight on homeowners facing massive repair bills and dangerous living conditions due to incompetence within the unregulated home inspection industry. Each show offers a unique dilemma faced by house purchasers who, misled by a vague or evasive home inspection, now face a daunting renovation or potential health threat. Disillusioned and now distrusting, they call in Mike Holmes, from Holmes on Homes, who gives his personal Holmes Inspection and makes it right.

Pane-Full Truth

Dan, a young single man, bought a townhouse because he could picture his buddies all enjoying the finished basement. That dream died when sewage backed up all over the new basement carpet. The home inspector told him to paint and caulk the windows and that it would be a better return on his investment than all new windows. Mike Holmes disagrees. A Holmes Inspection also finds evidence that the roof is suffering from ice dams, the drains are cracked and the bedroom and closet are boiling hot in the summer, and freezing cold in the winter.

Down the Drain

New parents Kelly and Brian chose a townhouse so they could shorten their commute and spend more time with baby Hayden. They were thrilled with the fenced-in backyard and the clean bill of health the house got from the home inspector. Imagine their surprise when the very first rainfall flooded their backyard six inches deep. Then, when the cold weather began, they discovered they needed a combination of booster fans and space heaters to bring enough heat to their bedrooms. Now they're wondering if the home inspector should have told them more about their strange laundry set up. This young family needs Mike Holmes to do a thorough Holmes Inspection and help them keep their heads above water.

Pump Up the Heat

Izabela and Waldemar worked hard all their lives to establish themselves in a new country, raise their kids and buy a nice house that they could call their final home.

A bidding war made it impossible to get a home inspection in time and they found, with regret, that there were lots of issues that they might have been warned about. After a winter spent shivering in their new home, where all their money went on replacement windows and leaky plumbing, this couple is feeling tired of this house and older than their years. They need a Holmes Inspection, and Mike and his team to make their green dream come true.

Rail Against the Deck

When Laura and Robert adopted their child from China, they knew they were going to need a bigger house. Their starter home sold so fast that they felt a little rushed. The first home they liked got such a bad home inspection report, they decided against it. Then they found a different house. Only nine years old with a big deck and backyard, it had a positive home inspection already commissioned by the previous owners. Thrilled, they went ahead with the deal. Right from the start, none of the toilets flushed properly. Then, one rainy day, Laura slipped on the back deck and the railing broke off in her hands. Now the deck, that was a major selling feature, is off limits. They need help from Mike Holmes and the rest of the crew to make the house safe for their little family.

Now they are noticing water coming into the basement, some spreading rot in the garage, a few fire hazards and some scary looking wiring, but they have not yet lost their sense of humor about all the trials they have to face with this house.
