Quite simply, a Holmes Approved Home is a better home, built right. Mike chose us to represent their brand of a better-built home because he recognized us as one of BC’s industry-leading builders who consistently demonstrated quality craftsmanship and dedication to building it right! As Mike says “Together, we are raising industry standards, constructing safer, healthier, more durable homes.”
Whether you’re interested in making sure your home is built right, or built to be healthy, sustainable and energy efficient, the Holmes Approved Homes program gives you three options to get the home you deserve – a home built right from the ground up.
Mike’s philosophy is simple: The things you don’t see in a home are more important than the things you do, and addressing these critical details today protects your investment, saving you time, trouble and money tomorrow.
The result? Simply a better-built home.
Holmes Approved Homes Benefits
How We Met Mike Holmes?
In the late fall of 2013, I arrived back at the office to find a message from a staff person from the Mike Holmes Group. My 1st reaction was, what could Mike Holmes possibly want with me? Frankly, I was worried that somehow there was a problem with one of the homes we were unaware of that somehow had ended up in front of Mike. So with some trepidation, I returned the call and started what has now become a very successful partnership and the beginning of our becoming the 1st Holmes Approved Homes builder in BC.
It turned out that Mike and his team had researched the best builders in BC and had identified RDC Fine Homes as a good candidate to deliver their new home certification; they wanted to know if we might be interested in joining them to deliver Holmes Approved Homes in our area. (Sea to Sky corridor, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver)
So what does being a Holmes Approved Homes builder mean? Many people interpret this as some kind of celebrity endorsement. While Mike is certainly endorsing RDC Fine Homes as one of the best builders he has found, the certification program is far more than a simple endorsement.
When I looked at the Holmes Approved Homes program, I saw 2 benefits to RDC and our clients:
- We would be able to bolt onto a very powerful brand to help build our business
- We would be subjected to a rigorous third-party inspection program that I felt would push my Team to deliver a better product.
We worked closely with Mike’s Team to validate our construction materials and methodology and, starting in the spring of 2014, to build our 1st certified homes. Today, every new home RDC builds is certified by the Holmes Approved Homes inspectors who, depending on the level of certification, may make up to 6 visits to our home building sites to check, test and verify what we are building. When the home is complete, they will deliver a book documenting all the inspections, test results and progress photos to the homeowner and RDC Fine Homes.
