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.

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.
