TORONTO, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - The Holmes Group is proud to announce the launch
of the MIKE HOLMES INSPECTIONS-a full service home inspection company. The
pilot project is set to begin in Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge area
of Southwestern Ontario.
Mike Holmes will be at Words Worth Books (100 King St South, Waterloo) at
1:00pm on February 28, 2009. He will sign copies of his books and introduce
the first Mike Holmes Approved Inspector.
MIKE HOLMES INSPECTIONS is the direct result of the number of personal
emails and letters Mike has received from homeowners dissatisfied with the
quality of their home inspections. Thousands of homeowners have purchased
flawed homes based on incomplete, inaccurate or incompetent inspections-and
these purchases have cost them money and heartache.
MIKE HOLMES INSPECTIONS will offer Essential and Extended Home
inspections on resale homes, Energy Audits and Pre-Delivery Inspections on
newly built homes. Mike Holmes Approved Inspectors will "Make it Right(TM)" by
providing clients with a comprehensive, high quality and reliable inspection
of their home, or potential home. They are experienced, trained, reliable and
fully independent professionals who are responsible to the client. Inspections
include a thorough visual investigation of the home's readily accessible
features, major systems and their components such as structure, foundation,
roof, interior, exterior, heating and ventilation system, electrical, plumbing
and more. In addition, inspectors will use the power of infrared, thermal
imaging equipment to enhance the inspection. "MIKE HOLMES INSPECTIONS will
provide homeowners with the facts, not just an opinion", says Holmes. "That
way homeowners can make an educated decision before they buy their home."
Mike Holmes, internationally-known as the homeowner's renovation hero, is
host of the award-winning Holmes on Homes(TM), which has run for 7 successful
seasons as HGTV Canada's No.1 show. Every week Mike uncovers sloppy and
dangerous home renovations done by incompetent or dishonest contractors. Then
he tears it down and Makes it Right(TM).
His new series, Holmes in New Orleans, will air as a special broadcast on
April 7 and April 8 on Global television, and run as a six-part mini-series on
HGTV, starting April 9. This brilliant series documents the construction of
the first home in the Make it Right Foundation's rebuilding of the Lower Ninth
Ward. Mike and his team build a home that is LEED Platinum certified,
hurricane and flood resistant-right next to where the levee broke during
Mike is also the author of two successful books-the national bestseller
Make it Right--Inside Home Renovation with Canada's Most Trusted Contractor
and Holmes Inspection-Everything you Need to Know Before You Buy or Sell Your
Home, as well as a weekly national newspaper column.
