  1. Hi everyone, Need some advice! anyone has experience dealing with GST registered ID firms that can waive off GST? Am about to sign contract with an ID firm, and was asking the ID about the GST since they are a gst registered company. She then said that if we pay in cash, she will be able to minus off gst. she will generate a separate quote for us with their non-gst registered sister company. but i am concerned about the company's accountability since the contract is signed with the sister company on paper.. is this a common practice? would appreciate any help or feedback!
  2. Hi, anyone sign up for this company The design.co? I will be collecting my keys in somewhere in October and still looking for ID to design my 3Room flat in punggol. This was the first ID that we found in renotalk. We hAd discuss the design, but not sure as this is the first time time finding a ID and have heard stories about running away with money. So please let me know if you have sign up and done the renovations with them?
  3. Any reviews and comments to this randy renovation company? How is the workmanship ?

  6. Hi there, am keen to purchase my toilet bowl but need to tell what is my toilet bowl trap. Has anyone done renovation/bought a new toilet bowl recently and know whether it's 6mm, 10mm or 12mm? Thank you!
  7. We engaged Stephen Yap from - to assist with our renovation. After the first meeting, he turned out to be aggressive and wanted to have his way. He refused to allow us to choose any designs we wanted and insisted that he is the interior designer and that he knows best. He refused to make amendments to the quotation and when we complained to the - management about this, Ivy Lim (Finance and Admin Director) mentioned that we have to agree to whatever they say, they cannot amend the contract and that they cannot re-assign our project to another interior designer. Truly shocking for such a large establishment. They forced us to cancel the contract so that they can walk away and take the easy option. Do not trust this company. They are not interior designers. They are HDB registered but not CASE or RADAC registered. There is no customer service here, they are only after quick bucks.
  8. Hi there, My fiancee and I recently purchased a ~20-year-old apartment in the East Coast, and we realize that there are quite a few tiles which sound hollow when they're tapped due to debonding/drying of the adhesive. See photos here uploaded. We've asked a few contractors to recommend whether or not we should hack and replace the wall and floor tiles in the affected rooms with new ones. So far, we've received mixed messages: some say that it's okay not to change them as long as you don't do any drilling on the affected wall. Other say that you should change them as they could pose a safety risk (popping out and potentially dropping on or tripping someone). Our question is: What are the pitfalls of leaving hollow tiles as they are? Thank you very much!
  9. Hi, I'm new here. We will acquire our flat in Aug. It is a 4A corner unit, resale. We are looking to get a contractor to renovate the unit for us but don't know where and how to start. We've contacted Aian Furniture and Renovation, Henry from Impress 21 and H2o Design. Any other contractors to recommend? We are not Mandarin-speaking. Please also advise us on how to start about. We aren't sure what to do. All we know is that if we hire an ID, they will do everything for us. But we're looking to cut costs. Would appreciate all advice, thank you!
  10. We engaged a HDB registered interior designer company for our renovation. After the first meeting, the ID from the company turned out to be aggressive and wanted to have his way. He refused to allow us to choose any designs we wanted and insisted that he is the interior designer and that he knows best. He refused to make amendments to the quotation and when we complained to the management, they mentioned that we have to agree to whatever they say, they cannot amend the contract and that they cannot re-assign our project to another interior designer.

  14. This is my 2nd reno-t blog in renotalk. Well, I guess I might be one of the oldest member in this forum, I was already a member over a decade ago. That time I was busy with my HDB 5 room renovation and this forum has helped me tremendously during my renovation journey. However this time, it is slightly different; I will be helping out my mum's condo renovation. Although the scope of renovation work is smaller, I foresee there will be other challenges waiting for me.
  15. Hi everyone, Can I ask a favour of those who have done up their renovation of their HDB flats.I'm looking to buy a resale flat but would like to change the location of the main door. I have attached the floor plan, as you can see the red area is where I would prefer my main door to be.Does anyone have an experience of HDB approving this type of request?I already emailed HDB and they want me to purchase the flat first and submit the contractor drawings....Let me know you're experiences!
  16. Hi, I am urgently looking for one window PE that I can trust to help us get approval for our bedroom window on a resale 5 room HDB. if anyone of you have someone that charge within the range of 1.8k to 2k around this range please kindly PM this no. I am reachable at 9844 3936. Thank you in advance as my house cannot proceed due to the window at the moment. Really appreciate if someone can share some information with us. As our contractor recommended one that quoted 4-5k I think this is ridiculous.
