Mike Holmes visited the Panasonic booth where he talked about closed cell spray foam insulation, moisture infiltration, new building techniques, and his ongoing campaign to “Make it Right™.” Mike also told the audience that there is no better insulation material to “make it right” other than closed cell spray foam insulation. He even went as far to say that other insulations systems “just don’t work.”

Mike Holmes was there to sign autographs in his new US magazine called Holmes Magazine, which is on bookshelves and magazine stands now. Mike is also promoting his brand new show on HGTV called Holmes Inspection, which airs Sundays at 9pm/8 central.
