5.0 Kelley J. Portland, OR

We had a really positive remodel experience. Every detail was accounted for and communication was honest and timely. We are so happy with our final bathroom!

5.0 Dan B. Portland, OR

We hired Max to take out an old chain link fence in our backyard and install a new cedar fence in its place. We were very particular in all aspects of the design of fence and Max exceeded our expectations! While discussing the project ahead of time, he was easy to communicate with, always got back to us fast, and was very clear on how long the project would take and cost. Once he was here working on the fence, he made sure we were comfortable and answered every little question we had. He got the fence done ahead of schedule and cleaned up to the point you would never have known he was here (except for the beautiful new fence of course!). We are planning to hire Max again for more fence work and several other projects we have planned for our house. Would recommend Max wholeheartedly, heâ s the best!

5.0 Diane G. Portland, OR

Max has been invaluable to us while we update our 1935 home. From bathrooms, to gazebo, to decks, replacing all of the interior doors and almost too many things to list.. Very dependable, and professional. Heâ s always willing to work on design with me, and share his thoughts on what options are best for the project at hand.

5.0 Stephenie D. Newberg, OR

Max was super professional and friendly. He wasn t quite sure how to do our project, but worked with us and got our fence done quickly. We are so happy with our new friends and really enjoyed working with Max.

5.0 B K. Newberg, OR

He replied promptly to my initial inquiry, and patiently waited to bid the job when we actually moved. His bid was quite acceptable, and started work prompt on a 70 ft plus good neighbor fence and gates. The job was totally successful and the neighbors were pleased. Quality work. One neighbor will probably hire him to repair or replace their fence. I would recommend Max.

5.0 Jade A. Beaverton, OR

I was made aware of Max s business via Home Advisor. He came to my home to look at the job within a few days and got me a bid quickly. He had not done a project exactly like mine in the past, so did some research to see the best way to do the work. He couldn t start on the project for a bit, but told me when he would be able to do it and he followed up just as he had promised! The work was done quickly and professionally. I m very happy that I hired Max and will do so again.

5.0 Anna P. Beaverton, OR

Max is a fine Craftsman. He always cleans up after himself, which I find absolutely refreshing. He is always on time & pays attention to detail. His prices are fair for market value. I will be having him back to do more work that I know we need done in the future.

5.0 Linda L. Sherwood, OR

Max did a great job remaking the front steps to my deck. They are beautiful. He was quick and efficient. Great to work with. I highly recommend him!

5.0 Steven M. Beaverton, OR

Max was great to work with. He was very professional and easy to work with

5.0 Josh H. Beaverton, OR

Can't recommend Max enough, he did a great job on the 90+ feet of fence and two gates he put up for us. He was responsive to questions and very easy to work with. Very reasonable pricing and the work was completed on time as scheduled.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    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.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
