Staircase renovation

We found Max through McLaughlin Flooring. We were very impressed with his work and knowledge. He was always keeping us up to date on what he was doing and was always a few steps ahead of potential issues. The finished product looked amazing. We will definitely recommend NORD-OST again.

Stair and Banister / Railing Replacement

We bought Torly's 5-1 system for our stairs because we wanted it to match the wood that we're installing. We were referred to Max to take the job of installing the stairs as well as replacing the railing on the 2nd floor that was 27" high. Max has great attention to detail and will not rush through your project just to get to the next. He stuck to his timelines and delivered a great product. New Railing with new pickets, new nosing which was stained to match the new wood we installed. Max was able to compensate for the slope in our old house making the railing perfectly level. Not only were we happy with the work but Max is also very personable which is very when dealing with contractors and trades. I highly recommend Max to complete you're next project.

Railing Project for Townhouse

I'm very happy I hired Max to install the new railings for my place. He was super professional and did a fantastic job. He was always on time and worked late to get the project done as quickly as possible. Max even taught me things I didn't know with railings and other general questions I had. The pricing was very reasonable and I would hire/recommend Max again.

Stairs, railing

I was extremely fortunate to come across Max through another contractor. Not only did he do an amazing job with my stairs and railing, he was a friend and gave me some excellent advice which helped me immensely with my renovation that involved a major gut of the main floor. Max's pricing was very reasonable, he was always on time, very particular about his work which he rightfully takes pride in as he does an outstanding job.
Now, its actually been a couple of months, I get rave reviews from friends and family on the beauty and strength of the railing and stairs. Thank you Max!!

Hardwood Floor Installation

Max of Nord-Ost is an honest, hardworking professional who is very knowledgeable about his craft. We had hired him in the past to install pre-finished hardwood on the second floor of our house as well as a stair railing with posts. He did a superb job and it was clear that he would be the one to replace the hardwood on the main floor. Just recently, Max installed 325 square feet of unfinished 4" white oak hardwood floor and the results are amazing! Max is truly a master of his craft! He works meticulously, with precision and fine attention to detail, strategically cutting and installing each of the floorboards. He is extremely reliable, punctual, tidy and very personable. We are very pleased with his workmanship and would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family. Max, we wish you many years of good health and prosperity and we sincerely thank you for the wonderful work that you have done for us!

hard wood floor on second floor

We know Max from the playground, his daughter and our son are friends. When we decided to install a hardwood floor on the second floor in our house, he was the first one we have called. Max came few days after and he explained to us everything about installation process form the beginning to the end. He advised us about the type of material we should buy, how to prepare the floors and many other things. He told us when he can come to do the installation and helped us to arrange the delivery of the hardwood. The installation started the same day he promised and it was done exactly as he said. The installation was done perfectly. We are very happy because our house looks amazing with the new floors. We were not sure about the color we picked , but Max told us that it is a good choice and he was right. The floors matched perfect with the furniture. Installation was done the very professional way, there was no waste or damaged material. The calculations were done correct and we bought exactly the volume of material we needed. We can recommend NORD- OST to everybody because we are very impressed how everything was done - on time and with very high quality of work. Max is a wonderful person , very friendly and easy to deal with.

Hardwood floors

Max installed hardwood flooring throughout the lower level of my loft and did an absolutely superb job. Some demolition was taking place at the same time and Max took great care to make sure that the new flooring would not be damaged. The end result is really outstanding. Max takes pride in his work and is anxious to please his customers. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Transition Strips between Hardwood and Ceramic Tiles

After having our hardwood floors installed, the last task was to install the transition strips between the hardwood floors and the ceramic tiles. The tiles were not level across the entrance way and in some areas there was at least ¼ inch difference within a small area. We needed about 18 feet of specially made transition strips. We searched through many reviews on Homestars to find someone that would be able to do this for us. After much searching and reading reviews we found Max from Nord-Ost.
After calling Max, he came over and gave us an estimate. He called when he said he would, and he showed up to do the work as promised. He is extremely reliable, friendly, polite, and the quote was very reasonable. He is a perfectionist and made our transition pieces on his table saw. He stained them to match the hardwood and had them fit perfectly between the flooring, tiles and the baseboards. This guy is very talented and professional.
We are very happy with the quality and work done with the transitions. They look beautiful and it’s all thanks to Max.
