Product Description

When it comes to home renovations there are three top projects; basements, bathrooms and kitchens. Follow Mike Holmes, Canada's most trusted contractor as he and his crew of dedicated pros fix home renovations gone terribly wrong and Make It Right.

Botched Basement Geoff and Lorraine hired a contractor to lower their basement. When the basement begins to leak and the contractor is nowhere to be found they turn to Mike who installs an interior weeping tile system and fi xes an electrical mess.

Lamin'aint Julia hired a contractor to renovate her basement and lay a new laminate floor. Just 6 months later the floor lifted in several spots and mold started to form in the bathroom. Mike comes to the rescue and lays new fl ooring with a few surprises along the way.

Jacking the Box Sian hired a contractor to pour a new foundation around the perimeter of the house but the wall was too small for the size of the house. Mike arrives to shore up Sian's house and give her a safe and warm basement.

We watch lots of Holmes' shows and other reno shows. We were hoping to see more detailed instructions since the videos were categorized by room.There was nothing we had not already seen on a reno show.

Anything Mike Holmes stamps his name on it great with me. If everyone did it right, the country would be a better place.

mike holmes, the king of home reno made right, is canada's answer to houses and apartments that have been either constructed poorly, fixed badly, or just built by someone who tried to make a buck and do thing either not to code or barely code...

when homeowners want to turn their basement into a playroom, put in a floor or even just fix the coldroom or straighten the foundation of the house (btw, mike says DON'T), all you-know-what breaks loose for these people...

the moral here... make it right the first time!

HASH(0xb3e6c0c0) out of 5 stars Mike is great, this DVD is lacking. Oct. 12 2011
By NYankees2006 - Published on Amazon.com

First off, make no mistake, I think Mike Holmes is great. He knows his stuff and explains it well. This DVD is simply a compilation of three different episodes from the first two seasons: "Botched Basement" and Lamin'aint (Season 1) and Jacking the Box (Season 2). Each of the 3 episodes are 22 minutes for a total run time of 66 minutes. There are no DVD basics (such as closed captioning) much less extras. Also, because these were from before Mike's show was filmed in HD, this DVD is in SD. I'm not complaining; however, all of this information would have been useful to have in the product description.

All of that being said, Mike's advice is great and will really help people finishing their basements, especially in older homes. I give Mike 5 stars, but because of the lack of description of the DVD which might lead people (like me) to believe that it was more than simply pasting 3 episodes together, I am forced to rate the DVD 2 stars.

For MUCH more detail, and more original material get Mike's book "Make It Right Attics And Basements." This was very helpful.

Also, a word to those looking for in-detail information on basement/foundation waterproofing (as I was): there is some good basic information and some fantastic tips in the DVD as well as book, but they're far from a how-to. Both of these products are much more geared to whole basement finishing.

Great dvd. Lots of little details, and tips on helpful products to use. Wish it were longer, but I wouldn't dock it a star for that!

Am a big fan of Mike Holmes' original show. Would have liked to see more of his episodes involving Basements.
