    theblessed1

  4. hi ryan81,

    Not too sure about drawer runner model. As for all the drawer units are using double walled.

    Cheers.

  5. hi taichipanda,

    You are using quadro v6, v6 silent or v6+ silet?

    Thanks,

    Ryan

  6. Electrician recommended by gragaschen cannot deliver. Do not be taken in by the cheap quotation. You can read all about it at http://www.renotalk.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=51666
  7. i dont like the SGD1500 Leather LV Bag; prefer the Hermes Birkin Bag. some can afford the finer things in life while others anything can do. Most of the time, it is taste that matters most. Cheers bro, no hard feeling.
  8. I'm using CaesarStone 2141 (20mm thickness) for my kitchen counter top, it was provided through my carpenter. On the day they came to install, i clearly saw the brand and color model printed on the opposite side of the slab. CaesarStone comes in 2 thickness; 20mm and 30mm. SilesStone comes in 3 thickness; 12mm, 20mm and 30mm. iQuartz comes in 1 thickness; 15mm. The following prices were quoted to me by my carpenter and quoted to some other RenoTalk members through their contractors; based on CaesarStone 1141/2141 and SilesStone Zeus Extreme. CaesarStone $220 - $250 per foot run SilesStone $280 per foot run If your ID quoted you $180 per foot run, it will not be CaesarStone for sure, most likely is iQuartz (iQuartz price is between $100-$150 per foot run).
  9. Dear RenoTalk members, Please do your due diligent when you engage those highly recommended electricians, unless the person that speak highly of the electrician can vouch for the workmanship and character of the electrician he/she recommended to you, i suggest you better dont trust them wholeheartedly. The electrician highly recommended by gragaschen cannot deliver. Please do not be taken in by the cheap quotation. Personally i dont wish any of you to fall victim like my facebook group member. The following was posted on one of my facebook group about this electrician. Initially he won me over with his low price & eagerness... He spent 1hr to go through my needs & wrote down everything & gave me a quote very swiftly.... Young man, Nice chap I thought, & with some (or maybe it's one) good review at RT.... As the project progresses, he started to face problems as he claimed his workers left & he has to do my place personally.... I have already lost count of how many days he has been to my place.... Even as I write now, he is at my living room creating new debris, throwing screws & stuff over my completed & supposingly clean floor... I shall just summarize the dissatisfaction 1. Very very poor housekeeping, simply drill & throw things all over the place without protection... I even took the effort to give him cardboards & he said he is used to do things this way.... There was one incident many weeks back that a screw was found stuck under my bedroom door & I think I know who is the culprit.... BTW, he keep losing his stuff & have to rebuy.... I have seen him mixing new & old trunkings & placing it together with the rubbish 2. Cannot deliver - After so many trips to my place (more than 5), still cannot finish... Everytime he goes off, will tell me only a bit left, but there will forever be something left.... As of last night count, still about 20 items not done. For my fanco fans, he doesn't know how to fix & I have to get bro Eric (from RT) 3. No sense of responsibility, absolutely no. All the mistakes r someone else prob. Eg trunking creates big gap but claims it's painter job to touch up, cracked my wall tile blame tiler for not tiling well... Leave messes everywhere & just refuse to do anything about it.... But the worst is he will always come in late, go off early & never finish the jobs.... 4. Always asking for payment when the job is about to be finished, & always tell me job done... It was prob my fault for being too casual & didn't go through items one by one..... Yesterday he asked me to pay him today & told me almost fin (i went back to take photos & count about 21 items outstanding & tried to tell him today; he still insisted only a few items left).... So far I have been very prompt in payment including some extras like remote controls & lights he bought for me... Maybe my biggest mistake was to be too prompt & friendly.... 5. Poor workmanship... Plenty of gaps at the joints of trunkings & socket/light point... Trunking covers that cannot close properly, slanted trunking & points.... Everytime point to him & ask him to fix it's either somebody's fault or it's a simple job & he will do it (but he never does) I have already booked the mover to shift next week & keep reminding him to finish it this week... No problem he says, give him one day... & he is now onto his 2nd day (not counting the half day last week).... & a few weeks ago when painting was done, he already spent about 2 days told me he completed his job except the kitchen..... So according to his version with only kitchen outstanding, he can't even complete it in 2 days..... Here are some additional comments my member posted last few days. He left the project on Fri... Called me on Fri to tell me take the bal sum & get someone else to fin the job..... Finally, things were fixed this afternoon..... It's crazy, spent so much time cleaning & cleaning (u should see the warzone he left behind....) & coordinating everything.... I decided to touch things up myself in case more pple damage the house..... I m shifting on Fri, but I m burnt out now to do anything..... Gotta recharge, regroup & make a final push towards the last hurdle.... Tuesday at 7:57pm via mobile · Like My touch up refers to the painting, silicon filling etc.... Did I tell u he even threw tiling debris into my toilet bowl & then vehemently denied doing it (no other contractors were in the house).... I had to put my hand in to scoop 4 times to remove it..... I think he came over 6 times after painting & still couldn't fin... EVERYTIME he spent short duration, at times no drill, material not enough, keep coming back & forth...... Good news is, it's all over with him now!!! I need to Zzzzzzzz now, ciao Yesterday at 7:13am via mobile · Like My wirings were supposed to be done after tiling, & installation after painting..... But he kept leaving things up, & he refused to touch the kitchen & toilet until after my kitchen cabinets r up, citing that he needed to do it all at one s hot.... & I had like SCV points, phone points etc exposed for weeks because he couldn't find the cover for them.... & a wall light that couldn't be switched on for a week coz he lost the cable for that... Get the drift of how messy he is...... Really, I should be catching up on my sleep.... Zzzzz, ciao Yesterday at 7:31am via mobile · Like But today I realised that he smoked my wife by telling her that the SCV splitter was spoilt... In fact, it was his connection at one of my rooms that wasn't working.... 4 hours ago via mobile · Like

  11. Where is that user iQuartz? I am still waiting for his professional advice.
  12. So what you doing here is ethical and professional conduct? You claimed gkbt attack products and services from other firms, can you kindly quote some for us to see and let us judge by ourselves? You too can start to login as a concerning member with enough knowledge to advice us on the real water ionizer instead of coming here to do sneaky attack on our contributing member.
  13. Come mike, i pay you high quality peanut that i can guaranty you wont get heaty munching on them.
  14. My L4800mmX600mm CaesarStone quartz costs me $4,000, my friend's L4800mmX600mm SilesStone quartz costs her $4,790; why yours only cost you $2,400? Something fishy, maybe dont have 20mm thickness, or they only have limited colors or the 7% resin in their quartz is not certify food processing safe?
  15. Both my designer friend and my carpenter has CaesarStone on their speed dial.
