The Holmes Inspection
Everything You Need to Know Before You Buy or Sell your HomeBook - 2008
In his new book, Mike Holmes is on a mission. The star of the incredibly popular Holmes Inspection program, Mike shows you how to spot problems that could be expensive or even catastrophic, giving you the information you need to judge a house wisely. From the mechanicals (furnace, electrical and plumbing) to the "envelope" (floors, walls, doors and windows) to issues of location and siting, this book includes real case studies, "red flag" sidebars and hundreds of photographs, and alerts you to the ugly realities behind the "lipstick and mascara" that many vendors use to cover up problems when selling their homes.
