T.O.’s handiest man
Expert contractor, philanthropist and HGTV personality Mike Holmes is once again offering his expertise to families in search of their dream home. In his latest HGTV show, Holmes: Buy It Right, he helps couples avoid homebuying blunders that come from failing to look at a house’s bones and focusing on cosmetic aspects instead. “We all need to learn how to buy intelligently, and that means knowing what to look for, knowing how to trust your instincts, knowing to see the red flags,” he says. Holmes cites the roof, siding, grading, windows and doors as the first things to inspect when viewing a house and says, “This show is going to help a lot of people.” Holmes: Buy It
Right airs Sunday nights at 9 and 9:30 p.m. on HGTV Canada.
