A Message from Mike Holmes

I’ve been a contractor for almost 40 years, and I’ve seen a lot of shoddy work out there. Most people know me as the guy on TV, but in reality, I never wanted to be on TV. I’m a contractor, I fix and build homes.

I started the Holmes Approved Homes program for one reason-PEACE OF MIND. As a homebuyer, the homework is done for you. If you are working with a Holmes Approved builder, you know that we have done our research on them, we have inspected their sites and reviewed the materials they are using. My Mike Holmes Inspections team inspects the homes during various stages of construction, so any deficiencies found are fixed before the crew moves on to the next stage.

I strongly believe that the things you don’t see in a home are more important than the things you do. Shiny countertops, nice cabinets and floors are all great, but I call them “lipstick and mascara”. What I really want homebuyers to have is a home built right, and quality behind the walls.

That’s why I am excited to partner up with Briks Construction. They are committed to building high quality, modern and affordable homes and I am proud to welcome them to my Holmes Approved Homes program. They know that a home is only as good as the construction that stands behind it, and that real value comes from building it right the first time.  

The HOLMES Approved Homes Program is about integrating the right building products with the right technology, using the right building practices to build you a home that goes beyond residential standards, from construction to final inspection.

This program is exclusive, and builders I partner up with are hand-picked to be part of this elite network of builders. These are builders that share my passion to build above minimum code, to build homes that will last.

With a Holmes Approved Home, you get a home built to MY standards.

-Mike Holmes
