Storyline

Holmes on Homes is a Canadian television series featuring general contractor Mike Holmes visiting homeowners who are in need of help, mainly due to unsatisfactory home renovations performed by hired contractors.

The series originally aired on Home & Garden Television in Canada, and also on several other Alliance Atlantis networks in Canada (including BBC Canada and Slice), as well as in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and on HGTV in the United States.[1] It had previously aired in the US on Discovery Home until that channel was rebranded Planet Green on June 4, 2008. It has been consistently the highest-rated show on the Canadian HGTV (HGTV having once claimed that an episode had received its highest-ever ratings), with shows airing upwards of 20 times a week at the peak of its popularity. It has won the Gemini viewers' choice award, a testament to the popularity of the show in Canada.

Originally, Holmes on Homes ran as a series of 30-minute episodes (with one ...

What Every Construction Show Should Be Like
8 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Over the years, I've watched select episodes from various home renovation shows, and contractor shows. And except for "Bob Vila's Home Again", most of them never kept my interest, until Mike Holmes came along. I discovered the series last year (2005), and I watch faithfully every week. "Holmes on Homes" is great because Mike Holmes, his crew and many of the subcontractors clearly explain (in plain English) what they're doing and why, so that a renovation dummy such as myself can understand it.

But what I like most about Mike Holmes, is the fact that he's part of a rare breed of contractors that still care and who are true craftsmen, settling for nothing less than quality work. I love how he prefers older homes to newer homes, but my major beef is when he removes lathe and plaster and replaces them with drywall and removes old windows and replaces them with new. But other than that, he shows people what a contractor should be like. So many people have had their lives salvaged, because he came to the rescue in their home renovation disaster. On one episode, Mike and all the other crew members and subcontractors donated their time (and I think materials) to help fix a poorly constructed addition built for a family's wheelchair-bound son.

He is a true hero and this is one reality show I highly recommend!
