About Us

Our Story

In over 40 years, Kettler Forlines Homes has built more than 4,000 homes in 100 neighborhoods throughout Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Our reputation is built on those foundations, and from our uncompromising commitment to quality—materials, design, craftsmanship, and service.
Clarence Kettler and Clifford Forlines founded Kettler Forlines Homes in 1978, with the goal of helping individuals and families fulfill their vision of living in their dream home. From the first home we designed and constructed, we knew that attention to detail, excellence in design, first class service, and quality craftsmanship would be the benchmark for our company. And, 4,000 homes later, that vision remains our focus.
Today, the Kettler Forlines name is an integral part of many of the finest communities in suburban Maryland, northern Virginia, and West Virginia. Along the way, we’ve built our own community: a family of dedicated, innovative professionals who average 20 years of service each—a depth of experience that few of our competitors can equal. Our homeowners know they can depend upon complete customer service, from their first contact with our sales representative, through the homebuilding phase and beyond.

Our Commitment to Community

As a local, family-owned homebuilding business with deep roots in the Washington, DC area, we maintain a long-standing family tradition of support for many local charitable and non-profit organizations, including Children's National Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity, Homebuilders Care Foundation, Rebuilding Together (formerly Christmas in April), The Boys and Girls Clubs of America, American Red Cross, Montgomery College, and Heritage Montgomery.  We are proud of our many employees who volunteer to help Little League teams, high school youth groups, local Chambers of Commerce, and serve on the boards of hospitals and homeowners associations. At Kettler Forlines Homes, we don’t just build communities. We become part of them.

Thinking, working, and building “green”

Our hallmark Clean and Green building standards are central to our commitment to constructing high performance energy efficient homes.  We recognize that energy-efficiency and green design are as essential to our homeowners as our attractive pricing and quality craftsmanship.
