  1. Hi Guru/Retired ID,

    I am trying to access your website/homepage but cant get to it.

    Can I check if it is still active?

    If I would like to engage and consult you on reno ideas, are you available?




  2. Your friend in the real estate agency sure got take commission for referral one..... How I know? Because last time I also approach real estate agent tell them if they sell any new house let me know I give them 10% comms if they can get me new customers...
  3. You'll be surprised... There are actually alot of such cases around....
  4. This is him indirectly saying your project is not worth my time, because I have other better renovations on hand that have better profits. Unless you hit him at a timing whereby he don't have any jobs on hand, or your job you offer a high enough price for him to do. But sometimes cannot blame contractor, because sometimes a job is really not worth doing regardless the pay. On the other hand there are times whereby contractors go up and take measurements discussing quotations etc then suddenly home owner disappear, which indirectly waste the contractor time and effort
  5. hello one advise. dont pay them the full amount at one go. i can think of so many different ways this can go so bad for you...
  6. aiya... all the ID sure use this to sell more exp to make more money.... u give me any changes i also will tell u because of this change pricing increase.... ID pattern more than badminton one la... if me i also will say more expensive but okay la honestly speaking is abit more expensive...
  7. general tips on how to choose IDs i think there are only two categories of designers/IDs out there, experienced and inexperienced. first i wanna talk about inexperienced. how you tell if he is inexperienced? the easiest way to tell is u think whether he hao seh kia (young man) or not. you ask how many projects he do he may lie to u also. but unless you can read people very well then u can ask him how many years u in this, how many projects u do before. if yes u think he is young then most likely, but not always, is inexperienced. cause young, didnt do much projects before, or even worst you are his first project. bad points - easily cock up, a lot of mistakes can happen. renovation mistakes etc if no one guides good points - you as homeowner can bully him. ask him do free thing, give discount etc.most of the time he will give in. also he maybe more responsible, higher chance of him being a good guy, have heart and be responsible. ( no guarantee) experienced - he look old, answer fast, knows his stuff good points - he knows his stuff, most likely wont make mistake bad points - he sure treat u as carrot chop, always got VO. but sometimes the VO is really need to do one... u sure cannot bully him/pressure him to do free stuff/give discount etc etc.
  8. got. but cannot recommend. because they never pay me to help them advertise so cannot. but even if they pay me then my lobang is biased. so cannot
  9. hi thanks for reading online got the list of HDB registered contractors. whether they got GST or not i also dont know. u one by one call them then will know, because i never use before designer. and contractor is use mouth open price to me one so they got gst or not i also dont know.
  10. different people different price lor... what type of material. how thick your wall. for what purpose, partition can anot. etc etc etc so many variables.... want to know the price, you ask 10 different contractors, the pricing they quote u is that pricing lor
  11. while scrolling around the forums, i keep noticing people doing referrals/ recommendations. so obvious lei.... where got people refer ownself one.... ok la... last time i myself also got refer my work to other people before.... so to all home owners, not to pin point any one ah... do your own homework is best la... dont people on forum say hey i got referral u blind blind listen.... most of the time its all the same person ah... meaning the guy recommending the designer/contractor is the designer/contractor himself... haha but sometimes also got real genuine cases la.... but some is really obvious la... i look at their company i laugh....
  12. LOL Brother one word of advice if you DIY the floor sure buay balance. not the same level. good luck
