Default Holmes on Homes

Mike Holmes is cool. I like to watch this program. My problem is he always razz's all the trades. Since this is a plumbing forum I will stick to the plumbing aspect. I just think that all that BS and razzing about how the plumbers screwed up gives HO's the wrong impression. It would not be so bad if he did not word it quite like he does. Makes us sound like idiots all the time.

He knows carpentry .I've seen his plumber do illegal tie-ins so I don't watch the guys show.I watch very few for that reason,I see what in my area is illegal and I start to yell at the TV,it's not worth it.Flippers are the worst,make it look pretty by masking larger problems.Gotta go to church now.

Yup, they are everywhere. We have one at our shop, he knows better but just doesn't care.

The guy is living the dream. Try to do construction where you don't have to deal with the customers wants and budget. He gets a screwed up house and gets to fix it the way he wants to without worrying about anything that the rest of us deal with.

I watch it all the time and I laugh at some of the things he does to try to make people look bad, or they didn't do enough he goes on about how code only calls for 2x4 or 2x6 so I'm gonna use 2x8 or 2x10 when home owners watch they don't realise the job was speced for 2x4 or 2x6 and if they actually used they there price would near double. Just realise its TV though so thats why they show all this bad and shoddy work to get viewers you will never see tradesmen that know more or are better then him (which there always is)

PRO: He raises the bar for builders & remodelers, enlightens homeowners to expect more.

CON: His cocky attitude tends to run off as an industry standard, not good for the image.

I don't watch because he's annoying.
