Mike Holmes names Sedona Lifestyles the first Holmes Approved Home builder in Ontario

TORONTO, April 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Contractor and popular television personality, Mike Holmes from Holmes on Homes, Holmes Inspection and Holmes Makes It Right series on HGTV, has chosen Sedona Lifestyles as his first building partner in Ontario.

Sedona Lifestyles, one of Canada's premier real estate development companies, and Holmes have something in common: They have both built reputations on accepting only the best in home construction. The Heights at Marionville, a fine collection of 13 estate homes in South Mississauga, is their first collaboration and the first Holmes Approved Community in Ontario.

After eight years, Sedona Lifestyles has built a heritage of construction excellence, with superior structural integrity. Sedona's transparency, integrity, quality and excellent Tarion record offer homebuyers peace of mind in knowing that they're getting one of the best, healthiest, safest homes on the market. And now Holmes is lending his trusted name to Sedona's latest community.

From the foundation to the shingles, the Holmes Approved Homes program works with reputable builders to ensure high quality, durable and sustainable homes built to exceed industry standards. This marks the first time that Holmes has partnered with a developer in Ontario.

Mike Holmes Inspections will be conducting six separate home inspections on every Holmes Approved Home throughout construction to ensure they are built to Holmes' expectations.  As a third party consultant, Mike Holmes will bring research, development experience and technical advantages (including thermal photography). Holmes is also specifying a higher standard of construction above the Ontario Building Code, with structural upgrades that include moisture and fire resistant wood, superior exterior seals on the house and water resistant insulation. Mike Holmes' participation not only ensures that buyers are getting an expertly crafted home, but will also increase resale value down the road.

Since 2005, Sedona Lifestyles has developed unique communities, designed with the needs of a particular audience in mind. Sedona principals, Stan Raimondo and Claudio Posocco, bring decades of expertise and a trusted reputation to each new endeavor, most recently Lorne Park Lane and Old Carriage Way in Mississauga. Sedona also has several projects in development in Ontario and the GTA. The Heights at Marionville is their latest development in Mississauga. For more information, visit SEDONALIFESTYLES.CA.
