Review by in Potomac, MD
Steve and his team have been a great resource for us over the past year as we moved into our new house. He handled some smaller projects like flooring and painted when we first moved in, then just this year I worked with him on our new kitchen. He is responsive and fair with his pricing.

Review by in Bethesda, MD
Our house needed painting. Our bathrooms needed renovation. Our aluminum slider windows needed to be replaced. We needed an honest, trustworthy, hard working, reliable, and fairly priced home improvement contractor to do this work for us. We were very fortunate to find Steve Jolles and HomeFront Insights. Steve and his crew did a terrific job each step of the way. From the initial walk through of each project, through the estimate phase, and then the actual work, HomeFront Insights did an excellent job. We were very pleased with all the work. It was done on schedule, on budget, and of high quality. We highly recommend Steve and HomeFront Insights. Sharon M. in Bethesda, MD

Project: Repair Drywall
Steve Jolles and his crew did a fine job on some emergency and non-emergency repair work on our home. The emergency work involved water leaking in intermittently which then damaged a portion of an upper story bedroom ceiling. Steve made the estimate with the understanding costs could increase as we did not know the source of the leak. That was well established beforehand and the time for repair was therefore not certain as we did not know what was "hiding in the attic" as it were. Once the cause was determined, a plan was swiftly put into place by Steve and the necessary tools, supplies and equipment were procured (a cherry picker, no less!). The repair was done swiftly and while his fellow, Caesar, was elevated Steve was kind enough to do some caulking around the windows on that side as they are unreachable without access to such machine. His drywaller/painter, Carlos, went to work inside the house, fixing the ceiling and painting. The man is a marvel and is able to make clean edges without the use of tape. That room had a special finish on the walls and he was able to handle that as well. The rest of the work in the home was routine drywall repair and painting. Carlos did a fine job and any detriment is not his fault but simply a difference between old paint and new paint. Any further work decision was mine to make and Steve assured me if I ever wanted more done he'd be happy to come back and do more. As has been noted on other reviews, Steve is adamant his team fully clean up after themselves. Steve does not tolerate his workers leaving behind any mess whatsoever and he inspected everything and was present for most of the time during the work. I found Steve to be pleasant to work with, accommodating to schedule, have reasonable prices and was completely true to his every word. I realize 5-star reviews, especially if there are a number of them (and only 5-star) may seem suspicious. Homefront Insights deserves this review and as long as Steve is at the helm, such service norms will continue.
Response by Homefront Insights: Mike, That big rain we had the other day, should be a great test for the repair made to the outside vent. The team thanks you for your feedback and looks forward to servicing you and (consumer name withheld per their request) on your next home improvement project. Steve

Review by in Germantown, MD
Project: Install Drywall
The quality of the work was excellent and I am very happy with the final product, but the customer service was not up to par. I was told the jobs (drywall basement, replace tub) would be completed in 5 days so I took a week off (they showed up on Tuesday instead of Monday and I was not originally told work would be started on a Monday). Additional bathroom work was required and I was told the additional would took an extra 2 days. The entire job took 6 weeks! There were days when no one was at the house and times I had to call and follow up on work that was supposed to be completed. I was told that I could paint my bathroom and when I got to a wall that was supposed to be checked previously, it had not been done. Since they have left, I noticed that items that were supposed to be done (caulking around toilet/tub) were not done. I picked HomeFront because of their reviews and discussion of the amount of time it would take to complete the work. If a job is going to take 6 weeks, that timeframe should be specified up front.
Response by Homefront Insights: I glad your happy with the end result. As we discussed at time of estimate, there were 2 concerns. one you were on a tight budget and did not want to replace tile and the basement renovation has a drop ceiling that could conceal pipes and electrical that may need to be relocated. Both issues came up that delayed the job beyond the original scope and time line discussed. Homefront Insights takes pride in our quality and our commitment's to our customers. I believe we did our best to control your tight budget and work your job to completion. You told me several times that the completion date was not as important as the quality. If you have any issues that you feel were not taken care of, please call us. Steve

Steve is fun to work with. The drywall, painting, tile and carpeting are all great. We have hired Homefront Insights for a few other jobs and we will continue to hire them in the future. If we need something done, we call Steve first!

Project: Repair Drywall
I actually didn't get my drywall repaired but asked Homefront Insights to install shutters. Steve and his crew were very friendly and easier to work with. Cesar and his partner worked efficiently and cleaned up everything! Steve made sure we were happy with the job from the beginning to the end.

Steve and his crew did a top-notch job on my bathroom remodel. Cesar and Victor handled the cabinet, sink, and countertop installation in a highly professional manner. Roger did an amazing job with the tile work. Steve was on hand to oversee everything. They were friendly, trustworthy, and I would definitely hire them again.

Project: Repair Drywall
Steve and his crew were very professional and got the job well taken care of. The ceiling he repaired looked like it never even happened. He made sure that the paint for the ceiling was a perfect match before applying. I definitely recommend him, I would hire him for future projects.

    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
