  1. Hi All, Background of house - Resale flat and old tiles (small tiles) (Living Room Tiles) (Kitchen Tiles) (Condition of wall covered with wallpaper) Due to budget constraint, would like to find out from anyone who had experienced with their resale flat living rm & kitchen overlayed with homogeneous tiles instead of hacking and laying it with 3-in-1 prepacked cement and tiles. ID said better hack existing tiles and do up with new tiles then just overlaying it as new tiles might popped later due to:- 1) potential hollow space in old tiles 2) the moving of the soil etc... Worse case scenario, was thinking of overlaying Living room with homogeneous tiles but hack the kitchen and re-do all the tiles. So, needed advise badly for those who had overlayed their resale flat living rm and kitchen with homogeneous tiles 1) Has it popped so far? 2) Advisable to overlay living room and kitchen? Last qns, 3) as the condition of the wall and ceiling is very original and 'raw', should I plaster the wall and not the ceiling? All advise are welcome. Many thanks in advance for the reply.
  2. Hi everyone, Does anyone knows how much is the labour charge for laying homogeneous tiles? I am thinking of shipping some tiles in myself, I am able to get it for about S$3-$4 for each 600x600 piece. Based on this a 1000sqf takes about 258 pieces of 600x600 tiles which works out to S$1290. Is this expensive or cheap by Singapore standards?
  3. Just wish to warn everyone about Harfary homogeneous tiles and share about the after sales treatment I get from them. I have my beige-white homogeneous tiles installed in March 2013 and just about 6 months down the road, some brown patches slowly appear at the edges of the tiles. Currently, about 10 affected and the number is growing with time. Image of one of the affected tiles: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/c2l5jnw_skaBMjwOLAR_8IY6RmADaLAcVZi9Ozlm0B0=w407-h228-p-no I mop the floor once a week with normal Dettol floor wash (diluted) and no acid wash done on the tiles before. These stains cannot be removed even with 'magic sponge' or even with Sunshine D15 (http://cleanshinegroup.com.sg/d15.htm). What's worst is that the Harfary guy came and have a look. He tried cleaning with his bottle of D15 as well. Stain is still there. And he said CAN'T HELP IT, white tiles are like this. So I told him that I have seen many houses with while homo tiles after many years have no such problem with the tiles. He told me sure have because Harfary sells China tiles and I have to accept this esp I am using light color tiles. So, what I can conclude from this bad experience is that Harfary may have gotten some low grade tiles from China. So, BEWARE if you plan to get light-colored homo tiles from Harfary. If someone faces the same problem as me and has an economical solution, please let me know. Thanks.
