  1. Hi all, Discovered this morning that the carpenter had damaged by sink but he kept quiet about it and only told my contractor about it. Contractor didn't tell me at all, it was the worker doing my feature wall tiles who informed me. My white Blanco sink had both top left and bottom right chipped off and glued back. I am upset but my contractor said once the top is up, it will be concealed. Is it true? Or will the sink collapse or leak im future or have more cracks? I don't know how to believe him anymore as at first he said he didn't know and then said carpenter already told him last week that it was already damaged. Carpenter himself told me on the line that his workers damaged it and its not the first time already. My contractor said nonono already damaged. So i said means Hoe Kee sent me damaged goods?? He said couldn't be too. Now 7th mth, are they trying to say the good bros damaged it since nobody is reliable?? Please advise.. I'm so annoyed by these people. Even my feature wall they just do it as they please and not following what I want. My curtains are up and they kept smoking. That day i was told to meet them for 5mins so I carried my 6wks old and the carpenter just started drilling without warning. My child has such a fright.
  2. Hi everybody, I desperately need advice on what to do with all the doors in my house. Currently going through reno & my doors arrived yesterday. To my dismay, it was nothing like the one I selected, color-wise. I was doing confinement last month and ordered these doors through the contractor. I was told that it will be like what I ordered. Then last week I got a call to say that it's still that color but slightly darker so I thought okay, no difference like that. I asked the workers & they said all doors are yellow, especially with varnish. I will not be able to find a non-yellow door in SG. I feel very cheated, having paid $2050 for all the doors. Main door, 3 bedroom door & one storeroom door. I was told that I cannot return or refund and cannot complain as they said that the catalogue stated illustration and actual product may vary. I decided to look for alternatives and came down to 3 solutions, namely Wallpaper, Decorative paint or changing the doors. I do not know how much it costs to wrap the door but the salesperson online all advised against as too many movement on it may cause it to peel. As for decorative paint, I am quoted $1800. Changing doors means throwing another $2k in. Last alternative is to spray paint at $600+ or paste Formica onto the doors which will affect the closing. Please advise me on what I can do, I intend to move in on the 8/9/16. Ideally I would like to have white/light-hearted doors to match the floor tiles. Many many thanks in advance!! (I had chosen VP15 without the middle board. On the catalogue, it looks light enough to match my floor and not as warm as the website and definitely nothing like the actual product )
