Lay Laminate Floor and Install MDF Shelving Carpentry & Joinery
Can't actually fault Maxs work.. He did a great job on the things we asked him to do. Only issue is reliability.. Was late most days due to multiple reasons and cancelled coming back three times to do the last job. Had to rearrange with a different tradesperson.
Standard of Work - Very Good.
Reliability - Not so good.

You are not very trustworthy or reliable you let me down four times without letting me know why or answering my letting any of my texts and I will never going to tell any of my family and friends or anyone to hire you to do any work
I’m very disappointed in your treatment to the way you have been treating me I asked you if you didn’t want the work you should have said and I would have look somewhere else. I will tell everyone not to hire you because you don’t turn up

Squeaky floor boards Carpentry & Joinery
I called Max to fix my squeaky floor boards and after he supposedly fixed them, they still squeak. I basically paid to have the same problem I had before. I paid the amount he quoted me without negotiation, yet the quality of his work is cheap and sloppy. He didn't hesitate to ask me to leave a good review after completing his job, yet after I told him about the problems that remained after he left, he failed to respond to me. The few extra attempts, I made to contact him went ignored. Do not trust Max

Max Barnard's reply:
When I looked at the job it was to try and sort out a small patch of squeaking in two bedrooms and a small patch on the landing . before leaving and giving a quote i said i could not say 100% that all go because of pipes under the boards and he was OK with that . He accepted my price and I went and did the work ,he was there while I did the job I ended up doing the complete floor in a third bedroom that I didn't price for extra in his room and about 5 times more work on the landing at no extra cost he did not even offer . He got his lodger to walk over the floor while he was downstairs so he could listen below . There was a patch that still had a squeak and showed him the pipes under the floor I did put some glue between the boards and said had done that to see if that would help squeak when it dried . He was happy with what had been done and even said how much better it was he then paid me and wished me a happy Christmas .In the new year I sent him a message asking if he could leave feedback never asked for good feedback . Over a month after doing the job he text me about a squeak I did miss a call as had bad signal . I have responded to him when he sent text messages . The last one was me asking him if the squeaking was on what had already been done , that was over a week ago still waiting for a reply . If he still has the squeaks then they would have still been there before I walked out of his door SO WHY DID HE PAY ME , did reject a face time call at about
I had some laminate floor fitted by max in my living room,hall way,toilet and under the stairs, i would have to say at the start when posting the job i wasn't keen on using anyone and could of laid the flooring myself but due to a busy life style it was hard to find the time.
Max carried the area out (35sqm) over 1.5 days, i'll have to say his finishing and attention to detail was 10/10 the floor looks stunning.
Max was also very tidy, which all his rubbish was bagged up.
I would defiantly use max again.

Replace boards and install loft ladder Carpentry & Joinery
Job well done. A couple of delays through no fault, just unlucky circumstances, but Max kept in touch and worked over the weekend to complete by when we needed. Fair price charged and was honest, able to refit our old loft ladder when he could have charged us for another and took away the rubbish for a small additional charge negating the need for a skip.
Many thanks, a happy customer here!

On time and totally professional in every respect. Due to a personal injury I engaged Max to do the job thinking, boastfully, that if he did it as well as I could myself I would be more than satisfied. The finish he achieved was far beyond my capabilities and I am delighted with the result. His price was the most competitive and I can't fault his work.

rosie_294 - 1st Dec, 2017 Negative feedback
Max Barnard's reply:
When I accepted to do the job I was never told it was a rental property they were renting out and there were time restrictions . I had to cancel twice , first time as I fell off a ladder and the second time was because I caught my daughters sickness bug , I find it very hard to drive and be sick at the same time and it was not just a sickness bug . I do not book jobs in for the fun of it . These people were so desperate for the job to be done I had to chase them and I dont think their tenant would have minded me fitting it when they had moved in . The first time it was booked in it was for late afternoon / early evening as I was trying to do them a favor as I had so much on and I had to cancel that work on those days as well and the other customers were very understanding and their work as either been done now or being done next week and that was 5 other customers

Was supposed to turn up at 8-30 am and couldn't even be bothered to call us even though the call would have been free as on the same network.
After leaving a voicemail saying don't bother and that other works would need to be done i got a text saying " Sorry locked my key's and phone in my van just got it open so on my way" ABSOLUTE TIME WASTER don't use !!! wont even answer phone to speak !!!!!!!!!! Got another Tradesman now.

Max Barnard's reply:
I take it that I must be the only person in the world that has locked his keys in the motor . I was at my van at 8 in the morning put keys and phone on front seat and left my door open and went to pick up more tools when the wind blew the door shut after about 20 seconds my van automatically locks itself . I then had to walk to my mechanic to get him to come round , until he turns up I have no keys to be able to drive anywhere could not even get into my house and could not make any calls as phone was in there as well . As the customer stated as soon as I got into my van and text to explain and that I was on my way . Knowing my phone was in the van how could I answer it . At the end of the day I was 1.5 hours late if I could have contacted before 10 am I would have by by 10 am he had already found someone else to do the job . Overall I have found this person very rude and I feel very sorry for anyone doing work for him and maybe fate rather than bad luck keys got locked in the van . The thing I have learnt from this is not to leave my keys in the van .

Flooring / levelling Flooring
This was our first and probably last experience of the 'Mybuilder' site.
Max Barnard was a pleasant, seemingly knowledgable & experienced tradesman, however from the outset of hiring there were alarm bells & we should have cancelled there & then.
It was either sheer chancing unprofessionalism or just an unfortunate, stressful month for Max Barnard, however the excuses of cancelling on the day or mostly after asking 'what time will we expect you today?' consisted of:
I woke up and not feeling well / everything up in the air this week / organising timber* & fixings for the floor / picking up materials and am stuck in traffic / van not starting and am waiting for a mechanic / mother in law collapsed / Can you do payment as went and done shopping last night and card declined / Van at police station and being finger printed as it was broken into again over night but will be over tomorrow / Picking up bits on the way / Forgot to text you daughter in intensive care....
I *starred the 'organising timber*' as what I could see & the professional company we had no alternative to undo Max Barnard's work - there was no timber materials. It was pieces of garden decking. Of course, if I was a tradesman myself, I wouldn't be on the site, but even I know that garden decking belongs in the garden, as part of a decked surface, NOT supporting joists and floorboards.
For a job quoted 5 days, we have wasted £850.00 & had unnecessary stress. A disappointment & complaint.

Max worked for us for 3 weeks, he took on a verity of different carpentry and decorating jobs for us, they consisted of building shelving in two airing cupboards, making a bespoke storage cupboard from scratch and finishing it in gloss paint and fittings etc,
He also stripped back 6 internal doors to bare wood before repainting them with under coat and gloss top coat.
He also constructed a false wall to conceal tv cables and fitted some wall architrave and painted an area of wall with white emulsion.
He carried out this to a high standard, he was very tidy and always left to place clean before leaving of the day,
He provided a good service and was in my opinion provided good value for money.

Max fitted an engineered wood floor for us. He did a very nice job and was quick to answer texts and phone calls when we were arranging details or had any questions.

We planned a complete reflooring of the ground floor of our Victorian detached house. A local tradesmen (B Scott Flooring) walkaway from the job midway at Christmas and it took months to find someone to come and fit the last 25sq meters that were left piled in our living room.
Through MyBuilder Max came in and with his sander Steve they were able to replicate the same finish that had been started. I am really picky and asked Max to change a few things, gaps between boards etc Max took time out to come back and change things to the exact way I wanted them. I was doing some decking at the same time myself and Max was able to give advice on this whilst he was here.
FYI the floor Max layed for us was a rather messy reclaimed 7 1/2 to 7 3/4 width pine board. I love the floor and the end finish. I would hire Max again and if you have a similar Job he can deliver a great finish.

Having done a beautiful job of fitting solid wooden flooring to our dining room before Christmas Max has now been back to install the same flooring in the hall. He took the time to take up some of the flooring at the dining room door and re-lay it so that the whole floor now flows seamlessly from the front door, through the hall and into the dining room. The final result is far better than we could have expected and everyone who has seen it has just stopped in their tracks and said "Wow!" He went to a lot of trouble to get everything perfect, right down to the tiniest detail, and noticed points and suggested details we hadn't even thought of. He is careful, meticulous, thoughtful, tidy and - above all - a true craftsman and we simply cannot praise him highly enough.

Laminated Flooring and Skirting Flooring
Max is a polite tradesman. He's floor laying and joinery for the skirting was of a high standard which we had no fault with. He is tidy and hoovers as he goes.
Our experience has now put in question tradesmen from Mybuilder.com, the reason for this comment is that when giving the bedroom a visual inspection regarding the flooring and skirting everything looked to a high standard as previously stated, however once Max had gone on closer inspection we noticed that pieces of skirting had not been secured to the wall, of which I have to now do. The built in wardrobe cupboard door frame has somehow become detached from the wall which in turn has now cracked the artexing and newly applied paint, for which I now have to make good. so off to Wickes.
I believe Max is a good tradesman however I believe more care could be implemented within his overall individual work commitments. Therefore for these reason I have given Max a Neutral rating.

Max Barnard's reply:
It is a shame that I find out from feedback of a problem instead of a call from the customer All the skirting was fixed with glue or screws but all fixed . Door frames have to be cut to fit flooring cutting the frames and removing the bits of wood make vibration and if artex on a wall is touching the frame then it is possible for a crack to appear The paint needs touching up all round the room as I was asked to chaulk the top of the skirting to the wall and this is something I did free of charge as with the 2 doors I cut free of charge Last of all the other extra work I had making good the bottom of the wall so skirting could be fitted this meant that the job could not be finished that day and I had to return the following day

lay laminate floor in two rooms Flooring
Max was first to reply, first to submit a quote, and ask for feedback on the quote, so we hired him. Max did all that was asked of him, he turned up on time worked all day and completed the job extremely well. He was let down by his suppliers but went out of his way to make sure he did not let us down and found another supplier. He was friendly and communicative, I would be very happy to hire him again and would definitely recommend Max.

Fitting wood flooring to hallway Flooring
Max did a supberb job fitting wooden flooring to our hall and lounge, fitting it under skirting and fitting new skirting boards. The hall was awkward with doors to cut down but we are more than pleased with the quality of the work. The floor has been fitted to a high standard and looks fantastic. Max was professional and hard working, staying late one evening to get the job finished. We also felt comfortable leaving Max to work while we were not in. He is also a tidy worker. We would not hesitate in recommending Max.

Max arranged an appointment to fit my shelf within a couple of days of contacting him and also for a time that was convenient for me.
When he arrived, he completed the job quickly and with minimal mess. The shelf is fitted to the wall as requested and is also very secure.
I would use the services of Max for future jobs.

Max Barnard's reply:
This was a 1 day job but because customer never ordered enough materials I had to do the 20 mile each way journey a second time . I fitted every thing she supplied but she forgot a cover strip to cover a gap where she had pulled part of the stairs out . I can not fit if not there and it was an extra anyway
Bamboo floor fitting Flooring
Max fitted a strand woven bamboo floor to the stairs and the upstairs floor of the house. He quoted a fair price and completed the work within the estimated time. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding, especially on the stairs where they were perfectly cut and fitted round all the complicated joints. As I rent the property out I asked Max to make sure that the floor would be a hard wearing, commercial grade fitting that would stand the test of time and abuse that tenants sometimes inflict on it. The finished floor is absolutely bullet proof and has greatly improved the appearance of the house. Trevor Bruce, Chafford Hundred.

The complete job of installing over 50 sqm of hardwood flooring extremely well done, Max gave full advice prior to starting the job from quantity of materials needed right down to the type of trim to finish. Although not part of his remit or quote, Max trimmed doorframes and doors to ensure the works look neat and tidy. I would recommend Max to anyone who asks and will definitely be utilising his skills in the future. Thanks again Max!
