Having watched Holmes over the years I'd say in most cases the "contractor" was in over his head. He low-balled the bid and didn't have enough money or skills to do the job right. Probably the toughest thing for someone going into business in this industry is to figure out what to charge to win the business without losing his a-- in the process.
Some of the work I've seen by people Holmes has cleaned up after is truly wood butchery. These are guys who don't have a clue how to do the work right. That said, there are good contractors out there besides Mike Holmes.
Also, Mike doesn't read or post on this board. If you want to contact Mike go to his website. here: http://holmesmakesitright.com/connect
