Project: Repair Drywall
We contacted Hollingshead Home Solutions to repair our front entrance eave that was badly sagging. Spoke with Susan to set up a time for Lance to come out and check what needed to be done and to provide an estimate. The estimate was within our budget, so we hired him to do the work. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable — a true craftsman who keeps you informed as the work progresses, answers all questions, and is honest, reliable, and trustworthy. Besides repairing the sagging eave, we needed a rotted piece of fascia behind the gutter repaired. Lance took care of this, too. He caulked everything needing it, and painted the repaired area, making sure the new paint matched exactly. When the repairs were finished, everything looked brand new. He cleaned up after the work was complete — the entry area was so clean, you couldn’t tell any repairs had been done! Lance went above and beyond doing these repairs. We are extremely pleased to have found such a professional -- what a find!!! We will not hesitate to contact Hollingshead Home Solutions again for future jobs and will recommend this company to our friends. Thank you!

Review by Toni H. in Boise, ID
Project: Repair Drywall
I hired Lance to remove a built-in desk, repair the drywall it was attached to, relocate an electrical outlet, frame in and drywall/tape an under-stair access, then texture and paint it all to match the existing wall. He would also provide, paint and install baseboard to the area below. Lance expressed a desire to take the desk for his personal use, reinstalling it in his home. The desk was like new (in my one-year-old home), and included two banks of drawers, and bank of shelves, and was topped with a 7 feet piece of solid granite. In exchange, Lance said, he would give me a "good deal" to do the rest of the work and he did. Along with the desk (partial payment-in-kind), the cash part of his bid was very low, and this low bid turned out to be his "hook" Lance removed the desk on August 22, and it took a couple days to have the bare wood floor beneath the drawer/shelf units refinished. Lance was supposed to return to do the wall repair but that's when he started giving me the run-around. He ignored my phone messages, and began emailing the most ridiculous excuses for not coming to finish the job. His wife Susan was involved, and together they made and canceled several scheduled (phony) appointments to return to finish the project. The last excuse came with a suggestion from Susan that if the continued delays "didn't work for me" I could hire another contractor to finish the job. She just couldn't see, she said, how completion of my project would fit into their current workload. I have a long string of emails between me, Lance and Susan that documents their game, and I shared it with the Boise PD and the Better Business Bureau. They agree that with the lure of a low bid, Lance was able to get the only thing he ever wanted from the deal, the desk worth a lot more than the cash part of our agreement. It's obvious he never planned to do the rest of the work. PD and the BBB both recommended that I not allow him into my house again, and I won't. I am currently working with both entities, as well as an attorney to determine how to proceed with this matter. The words "honesty" and "integrity" in Lance's business profile are just that, only words.
Response by Hollingshead Home Solutions, LLC: Hollingshead Home Solutions was contacted by Toni to perform the work as stated. We informed Toni of our current work load and that she would have to be flexible. Toni repeatedly reminded us, that she was very familiar with the Construction Industry and was willing to wait until whenever, as long as it was done by Thanksgiving. We agreed to come over and remove the desk so that she could get the flooring contractor scheduled in, as he was also extremely busy. We accommodated Toni and adjusted our schedule to meet her request. Toni contacted us when the flooring contractor had completed his portion of work and we again informed Toni that we were currently in contract with other clients and to please be patient. She again assured us of her willingness to wait. Toni commented about our reviews, and that she only wanted to use Hollingshead Home Solutions. Unfortunately, we did have to reschedule our appointments with Toni several times. On the 12th Of September we contacted Toni with a new time to return and she responded with, "That works, thanks." The next morning, the 13th of September Toni informed us that she would not be using Hollingshead Home Solutions. We did offer to return the desk and Granite counter top but she refused to accept our offer. Hollingshead Home Solutions' 29 Reviews speak for themselves. We have been in business for over 30 years and a Contractor with Home Advisor/Service Magic since 2000. We did contact the Boise Police Dept. and the Better Business Bureau and they informed us they had no record of Toni contacting them and a formal complaint had not been filed. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us @ 208-559-0821.

This is our second project with Lance and Susan. Both are professional, personable and make it easy to communicate. Lance has long experience and is a creative thinker. He holds himself to the highest standards of workmanship and integrity for himself and his client. We would not hesitate to hire and recommend him.

Review by in Boise, ID
We were looking to install a roof over our existing deck for several years. I was leery of taking on the project by myself and discovered Homeadvisor.com and ultimately Hollingshead Home Solutions. Lance, Susan and Kyle were great to work with, Lance looked at my basic design, added some suggestions which we really liked, then went to work on the build. He kept the worksite neat, and the workmanship is outstanding! If i need any additional remodeling, Lance is my "go to" guy!

Review by in Boise, ID
We hired Hollingshead Home Solutions for a kitchen remodel project. We were given his contact information from another good friend who also is in the trades. He told us you cannot go wrong with Lance and Hollingshead Home Solutions. Our home was built in 1979, and still had the original kitchen layout. We decided to knock a hole into our garage space to recess the fridge, and completely gut the kitchen to include all cabinets and appliances. We upgraded to $5K in new appliances and $5K in new cabinets and knocked out a partial wall to open the room up between the kitchen and living area. This area is now a breakfast counter, with a large raised counter space and three bar stools. Over the course of a few months (our schedule, not his), Lance did an exceptional job in every aspect of this project. He made some solid suggestions along the way that we might not have considered, and the project turned out to exceed our expectations. The old barn wood tile back-splash is an example of one of his many suggestions that hit the ball out of the park! We had a few bumps in the road during the project with some sub-contractors. Lance approached them with our concerns and came up with a solution to make the job right for both of us. I can say Lance’s attention to detail is excellent (must be that he is a USMC Veteran). He makes sure the job is done right the first time, and also involves the homeowner in every aspect of the project. Our kitchen is a beautiful living space that is such a great addition to our home, and we love having people over to entertain in this new space. This remodel turned out fabulous! If you are looking for a contractor to tackle your next job, who is honest, hard working, very well respected and has a vast knowledge of construction and the trades, Hollingshead Home Solutions is hands down your guy. Not only will your project be done correctly, Lance takes pride in everything he does and his work is a reflection of his pride and his can do attitude. He also was very tidy, in keeping construction dust and debris to a minimum, and thoroughly cleaned up at the end of each work day prior to leaving. Susan was also very nice to work with, and keep the scheduling of this project right on task from the initial bid, to the final walk though of the job upon completion. I highly suggest Hollingshead Home Solutions for all your construction needs. Give Lance and Susan a call, you will not be disappointed. Semper Fi!

Lance is amazing. I hired him to remove a non-weight bearing wall diving our kitchen and living room. He did so in an unbelievably minuscule amount of time, despite unexpected surprises lurking within the wall. He is incredibly courteous and reliable, a genuinely nice guy. We will be employing his services for years to come. Thanks Lance!

Review by in Boise, ID
I had a car drive into my front entryway (no joke!). Lance repaired the floor joists under the entryway, installed new subflooring and laminate flooring, rebuilt the wall (including new window installation), repaired doorway, built an entirely new deck, and even power washed the driveway (to remove skid marks!). The quality of his work is great and he is a very easy guy to work with! I highly recommend.
