From the HGTV Canada website:

If The Shoe Fits
In this Episode

A high school teacher is run down by a van after his home is vandalized. Tragically, his recovery means learning how to walk again and the ones responsible have yet to be caught. But Mike rises to the challenge to make this horrible situation right and the long road to recovery a little easier. The crew and sub trades rally behind him and go the distance. They start by building a fully accessible backyard oasis complete with hot tub, his and her matching dens and a display shelf that’s a shoe-in. But Mike doesn’t stop there, even bringing in boxing legend George Chuvalo to deliver this knockout performance.

Mike's involvement with this project was also written about by a local news website:

Paverdeck Makes It Right
Paverdeck, an innovative product made right here in Sault Ste. Marie, helps Mike Holmes "Make It Right" on an upcoming episode on his new HGTV series.

In the episode, "If the Shoe Fits", when a high school teacher, previously injured in a hit-and-run after his home is vandalized, faces a long road to recovery, Mike rises to the challenge to make this horrible situation right and the long road a little easier.

It is scheduled to air on HGTV on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 9:00pm.

“Mike is a contractor with honour and integrity, who knows the importance of resourcefulness, craftsmanship and reliability. He advocates for innovative solutions beyond the minimum standards of the building codes”, says Joseph Severini, Vice President of Evolutiondeck Inc. "Paverdeck was chosen because of its long life no-maintenance appeal, and it was a logical fit for Mike Holmes and the Makes it Right program".

Paverdeck is a decking system with a structure made from galvanized recycled steel, finished with stone or concrete paver tiles. It is the only maintenance-free lifetime deck solution available.

This past summer, Paverdeck decided to build a deck for an injured Canadian war veteran returning from Afghanistan. Their objective was to only to acknowledge this war veteran and contribute something towards improving his situation on returning home.

“We partnered with Jim Caruk, the well-known HGTV host, and founder of Redoes For Heroes Foundation and chose an initial project in Toronto”, said John Naccarato, Paverdeck’s President. “While building the deck in Scarborough, some Mike Holmes Crew members stopped by and were so impressed with the Paverdeck system, they referred it to Mike to consider for an upcoming episode of HGTV’s “Make it Right”. We made the pitch at the tailgate of our truck, and Mike quickly threw his support behind the product for the show.”

“It was a great experience for all involved, and the Mike Holmes crew and organization were top notch and personable. We are looking forward to more opportunities with them in the future.”

Evolutiondeck Inc. is an engineering company based in Sault Ste Marie, and manufactures the Paverdeck system for custom and DIY installations. For more information about the Paverdeck system, visit
