Mike Holmes[edit]

Good contractors are not a rarity. There are many good craftsmen at work and they are not in the minority.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.72.1.81 (talkcontribs).

Duplicate "Mike Holmes (contractor)" article[edit]

Delete this, and redirect all incoming links to "Mike Holmes". I have no idea why I created this stub in the first place - I must not have seen the other article or something, I dunno. But in any case, this one is redundant. -Alsadius 03:20, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Just redirect to the other article. Reasonable title. Fan-1967 03:21, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
True enough. Thanks. Alsadius 03:25, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Holmes Media Appearances=[edit]

Why isn't there links to Holmes's appearances on Marketplace and The Hour - they are on line and would act as proof that the appearance actually took place. ```` —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.77.81.154 (talk) 02:57, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Holmes on DVD[edit]

The first 5 seasons of Holmes on Homes are avaliable on DVD. I do believe Seasons 4 and 5 come on 4 DVDs (per season) rather then 2 DVDs for Seasons 1, 2 and 3. These DVDs are put out by Koch Vision in Canada. Seasons 3 and 4 also are sold as a 6PC Box. Holmes on Homes Season 5 has a street date of 11/20/2007 according to the Koch Entertainment website.


married?[edit]

Does he have a wife or husband or something?--Sonjaaa (talk) 00:59, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

The show's website shows that one member of his regular crew is Michael Holmes Jr., so I think you can draw your own conclusion. PKT (talk) 15:47, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
An article (which I cannot seem to find now) I read about Holmes indicates he is 'single', but he has three children. It can be assumed that he was either never married, or is divorced, but I have no way to confirm this. Mnbujold (talk) 21:29, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Halton Hills, ON?[edit]

I could have sworn he's from Georgetown, ON... --FusionOpz (talk) 21:44, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Read the first sentence of the Georgetown, Ontario article. Mindmatrix 14:02, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Well the second paragraph of the Halton Hills community site states it's a town. --FusionOpz (talk) 03:28, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

As far as i know he is divorced and has 3 children and a grandchild, who are his life. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.57.222.37 (talk) 04:26, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Holmes on Homes broadcasting[edit]

Somebody updated the section about Holmes on Homes to indicate that it's shown in the UK on the Discovery Shed network/channel. I can believe it, but I could not find the program on the UK Discovery site at all - not even in their A-Z index of shows. Can anybody find references for the overseas broadcasts of Holmes on Homes? PKT(alk) 20:58, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

NPOV?[edit]

I was going to quote some things I find disagreeable, like claims of "taking construction to a whole new level" [what does that even mean!?], but frankly this whole entry is slanted.

Point taken. PKT(alk) 13:12, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

The Holmes Foundation Website has moved[edit]

The current link to the "Mike Holmes Foundation" ( http://www.theholmesfoundation.org/ ) in the "References" section (#1) is invalid. A quick google search returns http://makeitright.ca/Holmes_Foundation/ as the current foundation url. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DarwinSurvivor (talkcontribs) 15:40, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Adjustment made. PKT(alk) 18:58, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

I really would like to have Mr. Holmes sugget how we can find help for our home that needs a great deal of renovating to assist my sister's. They both have worked for years and are disabiled from the workforce. My oldest sister has worked for over 25 years at one place.

She has worked hard to pay for all she can to assist my younger sister and now with out work, she has the burden to get doors moved, wheelchair access, amoung other things. Is there any place out there that can assist her in providing the neccessaties needed to stay at home comfortably? Please please let me know. I can't help her financially and we are so use to doing for ourselves that we don't know if anything is out there and have no idea where to start looking. If someone out there would reply I would greatly appreciate it. I can be contacted at firebirdsherry@hotmail.com or phone 1-403-630-8533. My sister's live in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan.

Mike Holmes[edit]

I don't know how to get a hold of you but my house is about to drive me crazy. My windows all have water sitting on them and they steam up really quick, then I have water dripping from my ceiling (condensation) and now I have had water lines break because of the cold weather and now I don't have hot water. Also, I move stuff away from the walls in my master bedroom closet and there is water on the floor and a lot of moisture on the walls.

Please help me Mr. mike homes, I need you badly.

Thank you,

This talk page is for Wikipedians to discuss matters about the article - not for people to try to contact Mr. Holmes. PKT(alk) 13:22, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Funding for renovations[edit]

Who funds the renovations Holmes does for this shows? I've read elsewhere that the show covers some of the renovation costs, but that other times Holmes is working for a reduced rate to be paid by the homeowners. And other times that Holmes has actually used his own money to complete renovations when the TV show wouldn't cover any more expenses. If these are verifiable they should be added to the article. Gentek16 (talk) 00:32, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

All of that has actually aired on-screen on Holmes on Homes, so if you can find the episodes where it's mentioned, you can add that -- 65.94.171.217 (talk) 06:31, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Buy It Right[edit]

He also had another series premiere in Fall 2016 on DIY Network, "Holmes Buy It Right" (maybe just Buy It Right?) where he'd visit three houses with a couple looking to buy a house, and try to show them what repairs would be needed immediately and future work they were thinking of, and giving them an idea of the costs and potential problems (on the repair front). umrguy42 04:23, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
