  1. Hello everyone, I have been browsing this forum for a long time after my key collection and picked up lots of valuable renovation tips. Also learnt what to look out for when deciding on which ID to choose. Hence i will also like to do my part to share my experience for shortlisting and confirming on the ID i chose. We met about 5 to 6 ID in total before confirming on our ID, meeting different ID can be quite a tiring process having to repeat what we want over and over again. So u guys must be prepared! Alot of ID we met quoted us over our budget, but our ID was able to meet our budget inclusive of electrical works. We also seen some of his completed projects which is very nice and we like it. Our ID was recommended by a fellow BTO owner in our FB group. During the 1st meet up, the ID is very patient and listened to our requirements. He is also very experienced and provided us with alot of good advice throughout the whole renovation process, from the types of lighting for our house and types of furniture to buy. They also have a wide range of materials to choose from. Most important factor is their workmanship which i feel is very good and quite impressed by them. Our ID is also very responsive and responsible, this is another important factor to consider when u are choosing ID. During the renovation process, our ID will send us pictures of the works completed. When we have any issues with the work done he will quickly rectify them. He gave us some minor carpentry works FOC plus did not charge us any fee for toilet and kitchen amenities installation which we bought ourselves. Overall we are very satisfied with our new home and the services provided by our ID. We have also recommended our ID to some of our friends and they told me he is one of the few better ID they met. I will upload some photos again, if u have any questions u may ask me and I will be more than happy to answer. If u like to know our ID, let me know and I will be more than willing to share.
  2. Hi everyone, I just wanted to share my renovation experience with a direct contractor for my 5-room Resale HDB. I initially plan to revamp the whole house but wasn’t sure of how to approach it. After a few conversations with friends and family, I was assured that going with a good contractor would be the best approach as it saves cost for me. Contractors don’t provide 3D Renders, only 2D but that was more than good enough for me as I already had a clear idea on what I wanted to do with the space. As I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I was looking for the best materials that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use. I was introduced to a contractor that had a very interesting new material for building kitchen cabinets. Apparently, they are the first in Singapore that have brought in a durable cabinet door material that is either scratch-proof or water-proof, depending on the option you choose.Also, the style of the cabinet doors are Victorian which is actually my absolute favourite! What is also amazing is that the material is stain proof with stainless steel finish. My young kid drew something with permanent marker on one of the doors (so naughty right!) and I was actually able to just wipe it off after spraying with magic clean solution! All in all, I must say that my experience with this contractor was wonderful. I was convinced by the kitchen cabinets actually, but the services rendered and final quality of everything else was really exceptional. There were some piping issues in my toilet that they managed to rectify and cover up to make it look like a brand new BTO toilet! I am more than delighted with my renovations and I can’t wait to move in! Here are some photos of our reno process and final completion. Good luck with your home renovation 😊
  3. Hi everyone, just wanted to share this small company with you guys that i happen to stumble upon looking for contractors to renovate my house. This company i found was referred to me by my friend. Which he find very reliable for doing their house not long ago too. From what i know its a family business and have been in this industry for over 30 years. I found their website but not much were stated. I was very impress by the way he gave their quotation. He will come to my house and show me the quote. Explained to me all the quoted items and how they are going to coordinate their project. Because i was living in the house during the course of renovation. I was very happy how they clean up my house and even mopped my house at the end of every work day. Every evening when i come back home, he would ask if there's any issue with the renovation before going off. Overall the coordination was very pleasant and satisfying that i came home everyday and there's progression done. Design of the house were mostly done by us. He will tell us if designs were impractical and give us a more practical design. He was very honest and not like others that will just say its impossible to be done without explanation. Overall i was really pleased with how the work turn out. I think that sometimes small company have more sincerity in doing stuff. I would love to post the pictures that they done here but my house is currently very untidy from all the stuff. Maybe once i have unpacked i will share it with everyone. Cheers Updates. Here are some of the photos for my house
  4. I am writing about HomTech Pte Ltd (http://homtech.com.sg/) because I am very pleased & satisfied with HomTech service and workmanship provided for my recent house renovation. I knew HomTech through a recommendation by a friend. After going through their website, I decided to engage them. Their electrical service is EXCELLENT, NEAT and completed the job in TIMELY MANNER. I do not need to emphasize or keep checking on the renovation progress of their work by going down to site from time to time. They will update me automatically of the site progress. They are also well versed with the home automation system wiring. I also purchased the LED lights from them as they will ensure that the dimmable lights and the lighting system are compatible before I proceed with purchase. This is an extra mile service that Homtech provided to me so that my renovation goes smoothly without any hiccups and I could move into my house fast. Well recommended!
  5. I hope this information will be useful to all homeowners who wish to save cost on home renovation works. Just as any other couples, we approached a few interior designers to build our dream home. To be frank, we were quite disappointed with their proposed ideas and design. Im proud to say we were the designers for our own home but of course with the help and advice from our contractor. Since we had to keep within our budget (arrival of our baby around the same time), we decided to do the renovation with a contractor after hearing from friends that it is possible to have a wow home makeover and save significant savings too. Information on renovation ideas are also readily available online. We were very much involved during the whole process. We invested our time on phone calls and checks to ensure evrything goes as plan such as the correct colours, design and layout as discussed with our contractors. Here are some of our house's photos in progress and the outcome. Im unable to upload all the completed photos due to size. All the best in planning your dream home!
  6. Prices of renovating a house is now cheaper in Singapore,depends on who we engage. Looking around and surveying around alot of IDs Firm,all quotation was on slightly high side,so me and my hubby decided to look for contractors. We asked our families members ,relatives and friends and finally met up with one contractor,he did for my cousin house He said quoted my BTO flat at a total amount of $12,300 He also ask us to buy things from Taobao to save money Really appreciate the help he gave us,i attached the picture and also items i purchased from and also where i purchased from. Just to share around with people
  7. Been spending 2-3 months comparing quote and finally found a suitable contractor whom i really feel comfortable and price lowest that i can find. Asking alot ID firms for quotation but most seems to be abit on high side,maybe its because of my tight budget as i wish to save as much as i can in order to have more budget to spend on appliances,my this contractor help me out as mine was a resale condo and alot of hackings to be done. He design my house with some partitions and make it into a cozy theme. My kitchen cabinet with solid top is around 2-3K only,thats the best part that i like about this deal. He helped me to match vinyl flooring colours ,curtain colours and also sofa colours,i truly appraciate the hardwork he put in. Feel free to pm me if you want to have my contractor contact

  9. As a noob when it comes to renovating, I had restless nights since the day I got quotations from various IDs ( some quotation are quite confusing tho ) But that's when I started to learn and slowly becoming a so called "expert" in it. Comparing and finalising from few quotations I had in hand was really difficult and mind-taxing. That is when I met up with my designer from Ben Design Firm. The meet-ups was always comfortable and relaxing. Not only, did my ID patiently listen to my Husband and mine ideas and requests. he also slowly guided us throughout our discussions. He also proposed good and constructive ideas to meet our requests. Aside he is responsive to calls and most of our discussion was over the phone, so things were settled quickly. He always does his best and do not over commit and give emptypromises. Though, it is the initial stage of the whole renovation, I am very impressed with his professionalism and responsibility. In addition,. he is also very knowledgeableand often advise us the pros and cons during discussion. Just did my handover last week and my whole renovation process with him will be an enjoyable and hassle free one. So far, I am very satisfied, I would definitely recommend Ben Design Firm to others.  I am proud to announce my new home. Cheers to all.  If u require my ID contact , you may drop me your email or contact number.
  10. Hi there! I have just kick started my 2-months long renovation but am already bogged down by two troubles 1) Unsatisfactory quality of work provided by window installation contractor The window contractor provided sub-par service e.g cement was unevenly applied such that some stretches are more hollow. This is not a joking situation as my flat is a corner-unit, hence should the windor falls due to poor installation, it could easily kill passerbys or break cars. On the first complain, the contractor has agreed to re-do the cementing. In their own defence, the contractors claimed that the unsatisfactory work was due to the fact that the employees are not well-trained in handling high-rise hdb flats; more trained in handling landed houses. Also, the dust filter that should be securely stuck to the bottom-edge of the window easily peel-ed off!! What can I do if the re-cementing is still unsatisfactory? 2) Incessant complaining from neighbour staying directly below our unit Since the start of our renovation, this neighbour has been making persistent complains about our noisy renovation. However, our contractors have completed the major hackings within the assigned dates. On everyday basis, renovation begins after 9am and ends before 6pm. Apart from complains on noise, she has also accused us of ruining her ceiling. Prior to kicking start our renovation, we had requested to enter their house and took photos of their ceilings. Photos were provided as evidence that her current state of ceiling were the same prior to our renovation. She has since insisted for us to pay for her maintenance else she would sue us. Any advice on this second trouble? Would appreciate any advice/suggestion on these double troubles :(
  11. Hi all, need advice on this. My vanity cabinet with solid top was just completed by my contractor. However, there is no spacing from the edge of the left door to the wall and huge spacing from the right door to the wall as shown. When I feedback to contractor, he explained that cos it's a tight space so always will need to make smaller to fit it in, hence the gap in the right. Rubbish or truth? (p.s both sides of the wall are flushed)
  12. Our RenoTalker in johor Got this sales enquiry from IDviduals from IDvisuals.com in Eunos. But need reviews about them. cant find their details online.
  13. Don't trust this contractor! When we first met him, he seemed genuine, helpful and sincere. The wall between our master bedroom and one of our common rooms were hacked previously in our resale flat to make a huge room. Because we were expecting our child, we decided to put it back and open up the original doorway. We only needed to build a wall, hack another wall to open a door. He assured us that he would personally check daily to ensure that the job was done properly. But we realised he cut corners, and damaged many of our existing structures including the parquet floor (he promised at the beginning that it wouldn't happen). There were several indentations in our wooden floor, and less than 2 weeks after we build the new wall, we could see visible cracks. When we told him about it, he shirked all responsibilities, came up with a million excuses and told us that such damage was very common. He refused to address our problems and deliver on his promise, and became very rude. At many points during our conversations, he even managed to blame the damage on us even though we brought it up right after the project was done. Granted, we were foolish to pay up in full even before all the rectifications had been done. We are very disappointed, and would like to warn others not to entrust their beloved homes to this hooligan. I still have nightmares about this guy and the work provided. Full disclosure: This is a simple renovation job after we've lived in the house for five years. We weren't expecting pristine conditions but that Robin would at least deliver on his promises to not damage our floor.
  14. Hello all! Been stalking this place for a couple of years and it is finally our turn to start a t-Blog for our first home! We are currently in the sixth week of our renovation already, will try to recap and share as much as possible. Opps, we digressed for a few weeks because the to-do list is never-ending..... and we, or maybe myself, are/is very very very fickle. Renovation is full of life-changing decisions which will be cemented onto or nailed into the house, quite scary since these decisions might stay with us for the rest of our lives (if we don;t move)! Also, the need to balance between quality, aesthetics, practicality and price is very very very challenging. We can be pondering over the same issue for weeks, visit many many different (or the same) shops and look at many many different brands/designs for each item before we can finally make a decision. Our contractor is constantly chasing us to tell him our choice of colors, chasing us to buy the items and etc, but I guess we are pretty lucky that it is not the other way round hahaha! Contents (will update when there are new posts) Our story + About the flat + "Before" photos Our Theme + Moodboard <future posts> <future posts> ...
  15. Hi, does anyone have contacts referral for a good arbitrator/quantity surveyor? Looking for arbitrator. Thanks.
  16. We have engaged a reputable Contractor, Pavixxxx Creatixx (been in the reno market for more than 10 years) and also a HDB approved Company.

Under our signed agreement, the carpentry works has a 2 years warranty with on site service. anyone can advise on this? thanks! below was the conversation on 12 Jun 18. almost 2 weeks and still no news from the boss.. totally give up on her.
  17. Hi, we'd recently gotten our keys to 5room resale flat. Didn't want to do any renovation until a year later to save up on reno budget. However, the kitchen cabinets was quite in a bad shape as the flat was left empty for more than 4 months. So was thinking of engaging contractors for the reno works. Type of work required - hacking of whole house - tiling - plumbing - rewiring - carpentry at kitchen

  23. Dear home owner, After doing my research online for some time, I noticed that the description is about the same. Things that they provided about the same. Those post online - 4299(all in kitchen package) / 3988(all in package) die die want to close me on the spot. Keep doing hard sales makes me walk away more. Until one day, I walked pass this ID firm at Ubi. The lady designer showed me this package and email me after I left. When I walk in, the drinks was served. I felt like I had returned home. I asked for any package and was presented this, by far this is the cheapest with everything I needed. I dont like the base in concrete, I dont need to do washing at kitchen. i do not cook at all. All i need is a sleek look for my kitchen. When I asked if I could install 15ft bottom / 5ft top to make it 20ft. They are able to provide and at a lower cost They rest die die need 10/10 I am happy with the service face to face. exp - Good! She understand her work very well. Explained the schedule & material used. CS- Superb, very friendly & nice. will definitely recommend to family / friends.
