  1. Love the show. I love and respect his work ethics. He not only cares for others but shows how much he cares for his family. Plus on top of all that he is nice looking!!!
    Thank you Ruth Henry

  2. Great show and entertainment. He has a lot of empathy and respect for those who have been victimized by shoddy contactors and home inspectors. Here in suburban Philadelphia PA there is the Williamson College of the Trades and in the Harrisburg/Lancaster area there is The Thaddeus Stevens School where I believe they also teach along his lines of professionalism, ideals and examples. BZ to Mike and his crew.

  3. Watching his show is a real learning experience and I really appreciate all the information. I do wonder if he is getting paid by these bad contractors to fix their screw ups ? Are their any legalizations taken against these contractors?

  4. I have always had a lot of respect for Mike. I couldn’t believe how much one single man could ever do everything so intelligently. His personality seems so mellow and kind. Yes I find him very attractive. His knowledge amazes me. He treats people like they should be treated with respect. I watch his shows now for inspiration even though I know I can no longer do what I used to. I am amazed at all the new electronic technicsl products that are out there today.
