Holmes Inspection

This September, HGTV Canada is bringing more shock, surprise and homeowner fury with all-new episodes of Holmes Inspection.

Beginning with one of the worst homes ever seen on the show, Mike Holmes visits a relatively new subdivision only to find truth in the old saying “looks can be deceiving”. The home needs so much work that it can’t be covered in just one episode – it will air as a two-part premiere on Thursday, September 1st at 9pm ET/PT.

The premiere introduces homeowners Sean and Carol who bought a beautiful and recently renovated home close to their parents to raise their newborn son. Living with a myriad of problems, they are in need of a Holmes Inspection.

Mike Holmes discovers that this house not only needs a full roof replacement, fumigation, and insulation – but the very structure of it shows poor workmanship that needs the Mike Holmes fix. So much has to be done, and on such a large scale, it goes far beyond what the homeowners ever could have imagined.

Holmes Inspection shines a spotlight on innocent homeowners facing massive repair bills and dangerous living conditions, encouraging home buyers to spot problems before purchasing a home. Each new episode features Mike Holmes solving unique dilemmas from homeowners who are facing daunting renovations or potential health threats.
