Holmes Makes it Right is a Canadian home renovation show that aired on DIY Network in 2012. The show follows the team of construction expert Mike Holmes, master electrician Damon Bennett and presenter Tom Biec as they go about fixing shoddy home constructions and offering expert advice to homeowners.

The show, which ran for two seasons, is a spin-off of the popular Holmes on Homes, which notably focused on fixing failed or botched renovations done by rogue contractors. Holmes Makes it Right takes the focus on poorly executed or disaster-prone home constructions that impact homeowners' lives daily. From dangerous electrical wiring, faulty foundation work, and untreated mould, the team on the show is often called upon when clients have had no success in getting their builders or contractors to fix the issues.

Each episode is themed around a particular homeowner and their unique home renovation problem, making it both educational and intriguing. The host, Mike Holmes, is the perfect expert contractor to offer solutions to these problems. He is known for his no-nonsense attitude and holds the belief that homes should be built to last using high-quality materials and building practices. He also emphasizes the importance of building codes, workmanship, and client satisfaction.

The show has a high production value and features spectacular before and after transformation sequences, giving the audience a sense of the work and expertise necessary to get the job done. The team works to overcome any challenge faced in the project, whether it's sourcing hard-to-find materials or dealing with unpredictable weather conditions. The viewer is taken on a journey, seeing first-hand the team's problem-solving skills, communication skills, and teamwork on each project.

Holmes Makes it Right stands out for its educational value. Viewers get to learn the techniques of the experts, understand home construction problems, and the importance of quality workmanship. This makes it an excellent show for homeowners or individuals looking to pursue a career in the construction industry.

The show's format is similar to previous versions of its franchise, with each episode broken down into detailed segments. The show begins with an introduction to the client and their renovation problem, which often includes a sit-down interview with the client to understand their needs, concerns and overall goals. The show then moves into a walkthrough, where Mike, Damon and Tom examine the home, identify issues, and devise a plan of action. Verbal explanations or visual demonstrations are used to educate the client and the audience on the problem and how it can be fixed.

The next step is the execution of the renovation which includes acquiring necessary permits, coordinating the necessary trades and materials, and executing the reno. The show does an excellent job of breaking down this complex process and highlighting the key steps that must be taken to ensure a successful renovation, no matter the type of project.

The show has received critical acclaim for its excellence in meeting the high production value that viewers have come to expect from the Holmes franchise. One of the highlights of the show is the camaraderie and dynamic between Mike, Damon and Tom as they work together to offer the best solutions on each project. The show is as much a reflection of their passion for construction as their expertise in home renovation.

In conclusion, Holmes Makes it Right offers viewers an intriguing and educational insight into the world of home renovations. The show offers a unique view of home construction by highlighting problems faced by homeowners and the difficulties of fixing them. Thanks to the expertise of the hosts and the magnificent before and after sequences, viewers get to learn about the ins and outs of home renovation.
