    Yes and they didn't get that right either James Doolittle did not become a Brigadier General until after the Tokyo Raid. He was a Colonel during the time frame that they made the movie Pearl Harbor. Another Hollywood liberty with truth along with believing that fighter pilots inexperienced in bombers would be selected for the raid.

Yep, he's expensive and probably better than 50% of the builders and GC's anybody has worked with on here. But it's friggin' reality tv. He's got us talking about him, thereby generating more internet buzz and he's selling more expensive coveralls because of that. The dude that moved in the home was happy as hell. So he did his job.
    Just think what Dave Lennox could do.

    I have gone onto his website and made some comments on other things not "Right" and never had a response.

    guess he is "Right" and we are some of those who"... just don't know what we are doing..."

    I would watch a HVAC-talk reality show, with Seaton as the "The situation" of the group.

    I agree the guy is such a "Chest Banger" and gets off on finding things that really do not matter

    He is a carpenter at the end of the day.
    He's going behind people that do SORRY WORK he may not know everything but he's on top of most. I live in the southeast and a lot of the A/C work here stinks,the old saying pay me now or pay me later holds true around here. It cost a little more but the home owners are real happy,but cost around here is everything.

    thats doesn't make any sense? Let me get this right, People in your market are very happy about paying for a repair twice?

    Are these people just uneducated or truly stupid

    It appears that it's Holmes Inspection now instead of Holmes on Homes, anyone know what's up?

    What Mike is doing now is fixing houses that have problems, and have had a home inspector come through before the house was bought.

    Mike first shows where the paid inspectors did not find the obvious problems the customers are calling him into fix.

    After those problems are found taking down some drywall finds a lot more problems, usually with the foundation.

    For the last few seasons, people would just apply to the producers saying they have a bad house and can Mike come fix it.

    He is also franchising "Mike Holmes Inspections" offices in Canada to do inspections to his high standards. Time will tell if his franchises are as detail orientated as he is.

    He's an expert on everything and everyone else (that did previous work on the house) is an idiot. When he's wrong he sure does it with conviction, makes people believe he knows what he's talking about.
