How much thought do you give to the quality of your water? Think about it: every time you cook, clean, and bathe, you’re using a valuable resource, but do you ever give it much consideration after you’ve turned the tap on?

I’m going to be answering some of the questions you have about your water quality in my next video. Give it some thought and leave me your questions in the comments, and I’ll answer it in my next #AskMike!

The shortage of skilled trades is affecting most of us in the construction industry. My team has been recruiting crew members for a couple of months now, with no success. We are in a challenging situation.

My kids have been working hard to encourage more youth and women to join the skilled trades. The skilled trades shortage is a real issue, and I am proud of the efforts of my kids in encouraging the youth to try the trades as a career.

We need to promote the skilled trades as a viable career. There is nothing wrong with working with your hands.

In the world of contracting, there’s the good, the bad and the ugly. In my opinion, about 20% of contractors are good. These contractors have licences, insurance, skill, experience and integrity and will make it right. They genuinely care about the work they do and the people it affects. These are the ones you want to hire, and they’re out there. I’ve met and hired many of these contractors.

Unfortunately, about 70% of contractors are bad, and another 10% are downright con artists. What’s the difference? Bad contractors don’t know any better, and they don’t care to learn how to do better. These are the contractors telling you that you don’t need permits or use your laundry basket as a garbage can.
