Hi, we have signed up with Linewerkz, our Designer and part-owner, William Tan, won us over as he was able to give us the confidence that our project was in good hands. He impressed us with his ability to deliver on his promises during our initial meetings, and was prompt and precise every time. We felt assured that he would take personal responsibility for the entire project from design stage to the coordination and overseeing of the various phases of the project until the official handover. His willingness to work with our other sub-cons and ensure that what they install conforms to the theme and image he has drawn up for us is definitely a plus-point. But other than that, he proved to be passionate about his projects and takes pride in both his work as well as the company he represents. He gives us the assurance that six weeks from the start of works, we'll be able to move in happily.

We found William to be flexible and accommodating in the way he customized the details to our suggestions, but he was firm about the integrity of the design that really is his baby.

Hi summervale
Replying on behalf of junewongyy, I have a t-blog on our home reno undertaken by Linewerkz. It's an (almost) daily log of the progress of the renos from Day 1 to about yesterday when we actually moved in.

You could say we're happy with our ID. Innovative, flexible, detailed, most importantly prompt and very able to follow through with his promises. Offers solutions when we encounter unforseen problems.

Have a look at what he's done with our house: click here.

Not really! see ur PM for more infos


I meet ID from Linewerkz, he mentioned reno cost at $20K and told me pipe need to change. My budget below $15K.
He didn't even email me quotation. He said, view house then will give a final quotation.

I haven't meet up Ben from Summit Design. I don't know Summit Design or Linewerkz.


How do i get rid those odd smell inside the house left by previous owner.

i can't comment on hacking n plastering, cos' mine is a new hdb flat, no hacking needed.

for tv console, u never say how long is your.
to compare, we need to break it down to "$/foot run" basis.

for kitchen cabinet's solid surface top, are you using branded stuff?
if not, then your $100/ft (i.e. $1,200 / 12ft) is way too much, imo.
i've had quotes at about $80-90/ft (not Corian of cos').
all my quotes for solid surface top are separate from the kitchen cabinet cost.

for your kitchen cabinet (bottom only), $1,600/12ft = $133/ft <- looks OK.

BUT
how come got another charge for sliding storage cabinet?
does your sliding storage cabinet actually belong to the bottom kitchen cabinet?
i have no idea how much a "sliding cabinet" costs; this is the first time i'm seeing it.
but according to your quote, it would come to ($1.6k+$1.6k)/12ft = $266/ft for bottom kitchen cabinet only - i think it's way too much.
perhaps you could ask him to explain what exactly is this (e.g. any special thing about this? why so expensive? why is this quoted separately? etc)


Never mind. Sliding cabinet is actually like a storeroom @ kitchen. my flat no storeroom as hack away liao.
It hard to select which one. Linewerkz or Summit Design or Other COntractor

We tried Linewerkz last year for our house reno and have regretted it ever since, because their workmanship is so poor that we have so many corrective actions to do (marble top in bathroom turning yellow/black within six months, wardrobes having wood insects, etc).

Hi Wonderz003,

i done my reno with Linewerkz this year January. the designer is very spontaneous and their workmanship is good. price is also very reasonable accordingly to the materials that my husband requires. hmmm...

how come your wardrobe has wood insects??? is strange when i see you posted this, because our house handed over clean and shine. and the designer even bought AIR freshener to each room. i can say i totally satisfy with their effort.

he treated our house with so much effort. good.gif

you know Andy too? my house was completed by him. that is what we like about his work. thou we very demanding in carpentry works, he still able to provide good finishing.

i not sure you believe or not, me and my husband caught him cleaning my house the day before handing over!! it was like 1am in the midnight. haha.. lolz.... wearing shorts and t-shirt...

to be frank, linewerkz is not cheapest in the market compare to other contractor or ID, but they provide us with good service and daily routine on supervising the site throughout the project.


overall i can say, i never find a designer who do such a extreme job. if i not wrong, he is a senior right? jawdrop.gif

Me too, meet up Andy Tan before. I believed he very sincerely. It is hard to reject him as reno. His price is not cheaper than SDS. He not like other reno company that give cheapo quality and material to close deal.

If I rejected Andy than I really feel sorry. If I rejected SDS, I also feel sorry. I stuck to use linewerkz or SDS.

u can see 2 quote from 1

anyone using Linewerkz, can you post picture for us to see.

Hi Melvin,

Hi babycha818,

Sounds like Andy is pretty designer. But does that mean his quotes may be a bit on the high side? I'm working on limited budget for my resale flat, thus not sure if his quotation may be sky high for me. wink.gif

Look forward to your advice.

Hi all,

It's me Adeline, I really have to thank you for your supporting.

Well, this is my first time in this forum although my colleague and clients have told me alot of time about this forum.

Bad News for all my supporter, I am sorry that I have left Linewerkz.
But please do not to worry I am still staying in this trade. You can still call me if you need any of my services in interior design.

And as for Zhiz I don't really know what make you think that I have self advert myself?
But I guess if I am someone who have the ability I don't have to do such a thing. =) And if you really need any help in ID do ring me up.
I will definately provide you with my professional services.

Have a nice day guys.. And please never forget Adeline =)

I had a bad initial experience with one of the ID when i visit them at EXPO 3 weeks ago. Floor plan was given to them on that day. Also indicate to them my budget as well as proposed works to be carried out. They did call me and i went down immediately despite my packed schedule to meet up with my clients. What they only show me is a freehand floor layout but with no rough costs as they can't commit. Being understanding, I told them to do up the cost of the proposed work and either call me or email me and i'll willing to go down to their office a week after call/email acknowledge for further discussion.

But till now, I still waiting for their quote and no news at all.. No email, no call, no sms. I guess i gonna drop them and choose someone who willing to renovate my unit.

Just wanted to share that had a bad experience with Linewerkz. Workmanship for most items were quite poor, or at least not per what the ID has promised. And there were so many areas and faults to rectify after the house was handed over. In the end, my wife and I had to keep taking leave to ensure the work was done up.

Dear all, I'm a newbie and we are considering Linewerkz for our yet-to-be ready home next year.
For those who have engaged them, may I know if they provided workmanship warranty please?
Is it true that only reno contractor firms provide warranty, those full-ID house don't or choose not to as the contractors are outsourced?
Appreciate advice from everyone who is more experienced smile.gif
Thank you biggrin.gif
