  2. 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.
  3. Hello Renotalkers, Like to seek advice from seasoned forumers as I'm re-doing my home current. I noticed the market rate for Kitchen Cabinets is around $120 pfr which was what my ID quoted for me. However, when we are doing the detailing, he is charging me extra for things such as these... Saucer Rack: + $220 Drawers: +$600 for 4 drawers using Blum track (Apparently $120 pfr only gets cupboard door...not Drawers) Bi-Fold Door for Corner L-shape: + $150 Extra 4ft of counter Top w open-concept Internal PVC for Washing Machine: +$550 Dish hanging rack w glass cover: +$250 Just like to check if this is normal? in my previous renovation where I had 2 Saucer Racks and Dish-Hanging rack, there was no VO....has there been a change in market standards? Thank you very much renotalk.

  5. Hi All, I am about to engage a renovation contractor to do some ceiling and carprentry work. What are the things to look out for when engaging the them to do wardrobe, cabinet, feature wall with TV console etc. The quotations only stated "supply and install full height cabinet c/w solid laminated ply at bedroom entrance". How do we ensure the material (wood, laminate) use is of certain quality?
  6. Any comment for above price? Get it from a contractor recommended by friend, any idea for it?
  7. Hi all, I'm in the midst of renovating my resale flat and starting on carpentry soon. Need to make some decisions regarding the internals of my carpentry works. My ID quoted coloured pvc for my wardrobe but not for my shoe cabinet or kitchen cabinet. Wondering if I should splurge on coloured pvc internals for the kitchen cabinet? I've not asked for the cost yet. My kitchen carpentry is massive. Doing a whole wall of full height cabinets (no storeroom, hence the huge storage), and top and bottom hung cabinets as well. Anyone care to let me know what you think are the pros and cons of doing colour pvc internals? Other than cost of course. Pros: 1. Hide discolouration of pvc 2. Looks good (better than white pvc) 3. Slightly thicker than white pvc? Thought I read this somewhere. Is this true? Cons: 1. Cost. Need to top up the difference, or course. 2. Anything else? Thanks!
  8. My renovation was completed 3 months ago. After boiling water for 10 minutes, the pvc lining at the top hung kitchen cabinet peel off and the gum "expanded" at the base of the cabinet. I did not install a hood (did not have one in previously too). Contractor said no hood will cause heat to melt the glue and suggest to change to aluminium frame tinted glass doors and adding a stainless steel at the bottom of those sections. I did not agree as they don't complement the rest of the cabinet doors. Any expert advise on a better solution. Thank you Irene
  9. Hi, I'm a new resale owner and is looking at doing minimal carpentry work. I chanced upon Xing Heng Projects Pte Ltd on facebook but unable to google any reviews done by them. Hope to get some feedbacks, if any, on their works if anyone here has engaged them before? Advice much appreciated. Thanks!!
  10. Hi everyone, we are doing our kitchen renovation now and our contractor is asking us to choose a paint colour for our kitchen glass backing. Understand that there will be a greenish tint because of the glass' own colour. Can any kind soul share with us what colour you chose for the glass backing? Some photos will be great! Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi guys, I just received a quote from an ID and the carpentry price seems high compared to the other quotes shared here. Does anyone have any input?

Hi All, I recently got 4 sets of the bookcases without doorshttp://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/00245639/ The frame/skeleton of the bookcase is solid pineIkea's glass panels are very fragile, thus I do not wish to get those doors and Ikea is also not selling the doors only as product.

  14. Hi all, its been long overdue, my house has been completed since September thanks to the speed and precision rate at which my ID worked, but i've been crazily busy with the move in and the settling down of my family, and also with playing with my "new toys", which i will upload later on. I'm doing this as a token of appreciation for my ID Kenneth, who owns his own company Abstract Design Pte Ltd, who was recommended by a friend who had his place done up by him also. As this is our first house, my wife and i had absolutely no idea what or how to begin with, and the internet is so jam packed with information that all the designs we seem to bookmark are almost something from every theme. We then decided to leave this in the hands of a professional and we contacted Kenneth who was recommended by a friend of mine who had his place done up by Kenneth 2 years back. During the first meeting, we had an information overflow for him, bombarding him with countless things we had plans for and showed him all the pictures we had saved in the bookmarks of our iPad, Initially we had doubts for the first part of the meeting, he doesn't write anything down, throughout the initial part of the conversation it was all my wife and me talking, and he just sat there quietly listening. When we were done with our bombardment, thats when we were surprised. He repeated from living through kitchen everything we said, without missing a beat, and checked back on whether was that the requirements we wanted, and summarized my theme requirement to simple scandinavian and showed us prior projects of what he thought we liked. And truly it was exactly what my wife and i were confused about, and we were immediately assured that the decision to engage a professional was a right one. My key collection was scheduled for June end, and we met him in the early parts of June, so we had a month to prepare, so after that first appointment, i had scheduled to meet another two ID's as we thought it was only right we get a few more opinions before we made our decision. Feeling a little more confident of the style we were looking for, we decided to allow the 3 ID's we met a week's time before we arranged to meet them to see their proposals. Kenneth came back with a text to inform us he had a proposal in mind, and would like to meet us, only two days after we met, and again i was impressed by his rate of work, we did mention to him that we were not really in a rush as we were only planning on moving in to our new place in September, but his logic to us was that he believed that after the first appointment, with the information still fresh in our mind, we would not forget what we had wanted in the first appointment. Which is true to a certain extent, so i arranged to meet up with him that weekend, excited to see what proposal he had in mind for us. Our second appointment was the weekend, four days after we first met him. I would learn later on that the works and proposals he did for me was far more than what the other two ID's had prepared. 2 dimensional floorplan space planning, quote, and what he did extra was he actually did a sketch up on his idea for the kitchen which was what we were going to spend more on. Although the google sketchup figure he did was just a simple sketch, the other two ID's which we would meet later on didn't provide this additional service. We were impressed by his professionalism and knowledge on the buildup which he selflessly shared with us even though we hadn't confirmed with him, even to the extent of sending us the photo image of the sketch which the other two ID's had informed us that the design would require an upfront design fee before they would share it with us. After the meeting with the other two ID's , who were also professional in their proposals to us, what made our decision easier was the impression of the rate of which Kenneth returned to us with his proposal and his second meeting presentation to us. We decided to go ahead with Kenneth. I'll be uploading the pictures of the progress of work and why even though my house has been completed, i want to make sure i do this to show my gratitude to what Kenneth has helped us with in our renovation.

  17. Hello everyone, I'm looking for someone to do shoe cabinet, bookshelves and a small desk. Do you have any good carpenter to recommend ? I'm looking for clean work rather than ultra low price... But cheaper is better of course. Or would you recommend going through an ID ? Anyone has experience (good or bad) working directly with carpenters ? Thanks for your help !
