  1. Not sure if this is the right place to voice this out but i need some advise. Background : My neighbour's contractor came by to inform that there will be hacking done. He request to enter the house to see my ceiling condition before hacking starts. My mum refuse to open door. Last week hacking started and over the weekend we spotted watermarks on the kitchen ceiling. I called the contractor and inform him of the situation. He claim that it could be a prexisting condition as my mum did not open the door and he is not able to access the situation. Anyway he agreed to come down and take a look. Now my question is Can the contractor escape responsiblity like this? Is it a rule that my mum need to open the door? Who can I complain to if the contractor refuse to do anything? HDB? The contractor also claim that we are not allow to do plastering on ceiling. Is it true? He claim that if ceiling plastering crack due to hacking is it not his problem coz we are not allow to plaster the ceiling. Thanks alot in advance.
  2. JTS : my parents did a whole hse reno a couple of years back. We are lucky as we manage to find a short term rental ( ard 2.5 mths ) through renotalk.. your best bet is to look for new owners that just got their flat and not in a hurry to move in.. see if they are willing to rent out their hse to for a couple of mths.. gd luck!
  3. Need help.. Who can i look for to replace my current PD door.. it gave away a few days back.. the top part of the door broke off.. Any one can help??
  4. Y didnt u go back to your contractor since it is only 2 years? Is your a resale flat? I kena the same thing too.. called my old contractor and he got his guys to replace it for me.. Not FOC of coz.. i need to pay for the labour and the tiles.. I talk to the guy that came down to redo my tiles and complain to him.. he mention that it is quite a common problem for china homogenous tiles..it is due to the tile quality..it is not becoz the worker eat snake or put less cement..just that over time some of the tiles will not "eat" the cement and will have the hollow effect.. so since i am using back the same tile..the problem may resurface or it may happen to my other tiles as well.. * sianz * I am not sure what he say is true anot..so just to share..
