Mike Holmes has been the star of many PSAs encouraging homeowners to check references and make sure their contractor has all the certifications he is required to have before they hire him. This PSA is just a little bit different though. The message is the same, but the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries is of course based out of Washington State, USA. I could be wrong, but I don't recall Mike ever doing something like this for an organization not on Canadian soil. Kinda interesting, or at least noteworthy enough to point out.
Check out this recent video staring Mike, which encourages homeowners to "protect their home" by 1) asking to see the contractor's registration, 2) Getting references, and 3) never paying in full until the job is done.
