What is a Holmes Approved Home?
Mike Holmes is a guy who needs no introduction.
As the star of several TV series, the author of a few books – including a best seller – and a weekly column, he’s the most trusted name in the industry, hands down, with over 30 years of experience under his tool belt. His knowledge of home building, construction and renovation is unparalleled, and that’s why we’re thrilled to partner with him and his team to build Holmes Approved Homes. In fact, Lexis is one of just three Saskatoon home builders to hold this honour.
It was our commitment to quality that caught the attention of Canada’s most trusted contractor, and when his team reached out to us about a potential partnership, we happily joined forces.
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. As a result, Lexis homebuyers gain peace of mind knowing their new home is built to the highest standards.
Every Lexis home we build meets the Holmes Approved Homes standard, where each home is inspected at least three times during construction by Holmes Approved inspectors. These inspections include advanced technologies to ensure top building practices are followed, such as thermal imaging and air tightness testing — resulting in lower energy bills for the homeowner.
Interested in taking it a step further? We also offer the HOLMES Upgrade Package and the Complete HOLMES Package, which takes your home to the next level. Each package includes additional inspections and upgrades that improve energy efficiency, air quality and durability, giving homebuyers a stronger, more resilient structure.
Once complete, every home built under this program receives Holmes Approved Homes certification, providing you with the confidence in knowing your home is healthy, safe and built to last.
When it comes to “making it right” you can trust the team at Lexis — but don’t just take our word for it. Check out the videos to hear what Mike himself has to say about Lexis Homes. [Videos]
