  1. Here a few direct laminate flooring supplier. Hope it help. Floorrich http://www.supremefloors.com.sg/ http://mylaminateflooring.com.sg/ Bilrich Flooring‎ kronotex My sister done his 3 bedroom with this laminate flooring company. (Cant recall what the name) Low price comes with very bad quality and workmanship from china but the price is very attractive less than $3.00 psf. The company is like those one man show or two man show company. No office or warehouse. Want to visit their showroom or office he or she will give you many excuse. Product from China but say from Germany with 20 or 25 years warrantly. Now my sister having a bad time to fix the flooring problem coz all the furniture already move in. For all owner. Take your time look around, ask around, compare a few products before making any decision. Good Products = Price Not Cheap Cheap Price = Not Good Products

  3. Hi diva ( Hi Maggie. The process of renovation is very tough. You will be stressful along the journey but always look at the bright side when renovation is complete. Regarding the home curtains, you can try take a look at this website. I got my curtain done by one of them. http://mycurtainsandblinds.com I hope it help. hi how much did your curtain cost? I am also looking at curtains to replace my 6 year old curtains.. ) How your Curtains?
  4. Hi sporterster, is your wallpaper still available
  5. An advice to all home owner, do not engage those one man show curtains van. My brother recently did his home curtains, after giving him $100 as deposit. Till now could not be able to find him. Base on his name card and did a roc search. There is no such company and his mobile number is a pre pay card number. They might be cheap but high chance of them go missing if anything goes wrong.
  6. Less than $800 for 3 bedroom and living room. I think it a good deal. So far everything look ok.
  7. Five day ago the electric man came and fix the wall fan for us. But due to careless he drop his driller and damage two piece of my laminate flooring.............. I was so angry coz it so new. He just apologize and carry on and install the 3 wall fan for me. When everything completed he still collect the full payment. How I wish I had the courage to tell him how is he going to compensation to me. End up I have to pay myself I suppose. I call up Mr Leong to tell him my problem and ask him to come and fix the problem ASAP. I can tell you he one of the good contractor I ever seem. He told me to hold on for a few day till today (Saturday) as he had a job near by, and after the job he will arrange his men to drop by to do the touch up at no cost. (Free) They came at 5pm and remove the damage laminate flooring and replace with the new one. I could say their workmanship is so good that it look so prefect like it never change before. And everything just completed before 6 pm and he personally still made a trip to drop by to take a look. Good Job

  12. After spoken to a few supplier we decided to use the product from JL concepts. What we like about them: no hard sale, they wont tell you later no stock of your colour choice so now you put deposit and confirm and they will reserve the stock for you. Last Thursday they came and install the laminate flooring for our 3 bedrooms. Mr lim came together with his worker, advice us what kind of direction it should lay to made our room look bigger (thumb up). By 6pm everything was completed and he drop by again to check on his worker workmanship before handing over to us. Prefect job done. What we dislike about them: Not at the moment so far.
  13. If I have all the good contact on supplier and sub contractor, I will do that. I believe a lot of user will do that too. Engage an ID complete in 6 to 8 weeks DIY yourself with all the contact 8 to 10 week but you save $5 to $10k which one will u choose?
  14. $6000 renovation: 1. White painting 2 Clearance stock 3. Unskill worker 4. At least 50% above deposit 5. Never ending complain
  15. If you are a salesman will you tell your client where do get the direct stock. If you are a salesman will you teach your client how to use other company product Mr ID I suppose you are waiting for my reply. I very curious, by telling us "Hi, i was providing the best solution to hope you guys learn to monitor your reno smoothly" By the way what will you get in return? 1. Increase the image of your company 2. Sincerely helping us with idea Some example: If Peter send his car for repair. The workshop say this or that will you believe him 100% and do what they say and pay what they bill? Or Will you believe someone who had use their services before? I have to admit there are good and bad contractor out there. But this is how I feel, good contractor do not need to advertise for themselves here or give advice to anyone for free. They are just too busy making sure their customer project complete in time, making sure everything goes smoothly. Please do not feel offence this is just how I feel. I apologise if there any sentence I say that made you feel offended.
  16. Forgive me to say this, I can see that u r a business ads advertiser here who wish to get more bussiness here from us. I just wish to voice out that how many Id really will do their part as a contractor. Is alway so easy when u guy say this or that pretend to be god before the contract is sign but after the contract been sign, many things happen. Below is an example: http://www.renotalk.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=14283&st=40 I very sure from the very first day we sign you guy already know how much is the profit when the project end. Alway ask us to pay 30 or 40% even before the job been start. Tell us u need to pay your sub Contractor here or there but actually u guy all have credit term at least 40 to 60 day terms. A very good contractor or ID no need to advertise, their refer job is alway coming n coming. I have done 2 full renovation before n I stop looking for Id company that advertise on forum. Very simple they just want to made use of us to spread from words of mouth. A showroom at Balestier is easily $8000 onwards for a small unit. So getting an ID from balestier you guy profit margin easily 40% or more. I rather get a one man show contractor without any showroom to do my third renovation home or I DIY myself. Maybe u r an advertiser that y I do not see any review regarding your company. I went down to ask a renovation package regarding the $8000 package http://www.sginteriorhub.com/promotion/renovation-package/category This company by the name of square room offer $8000 for 4 rm but it a very simple basic renovation for me is ok coz we might decide to sign with them. Our 4 room is going to rent out so we do not need any nice, creative design. I think they are very disappoint with us.

  18. Warming: Recently I request a quote online giving all my personnel contact and detail. We were lazy just want to find out more about pricing and design without going round asking for quote hoping to save money. It say 20 Top I.D firm, so we save time n transport. Our nightmare begin we receive more than 50 different calls from all kinds of I.D company. Some are even curtain shop asking you whether you like to come down to their shop or they can made a trip down to your home. Till today 29.12.12 12.58pm I receive another two call from whoever. My advice to all. Never give your contact number online
  19. You can see all kind of Aggressive ads everywhere, from expo, Internet, newspaper, magazine.......... I suppose all ful of gimmick, no hidden cost, no gst no so on. So when u sign with them all the the hidden cost appear, all the gimmick come along. Is it true sometime if you get a one man show contractor without a showroom you will get a better deal and he will focus on your project more rather get a Id company when they had too many contract on hand and somehow they may delay yr work due to too many thing to handle. A very funny ads I come across tell you they will understand what u want in 15 minutes. http://www.sginteriorhub.com/promotion/renovation-package/category
  20. If the whole renovation cost 20 to 25k a saving of 5 to 7k saving is a lot those Id told me that their profit is about 5 to 8 % of the $25k so I think about it we dun really save a lot.
  21. Kindly advice, I wonder sometime there are so many ID firm around is it better to confirm the deal as a package or is it better to ask the id quote each item individual? Anyone facing the same problem or pls share your experience
