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!
Can someone please advise me about a couple of things regarding combination of rewiring and renovation works. 1. Does it matter in what order you do it - rewiring first and renovation after; or renovation first and rewiring later? How is it done normally, rewiring first or reno first? 2. If I rewire first and after that reno contractor would need to smooth the walls (including walls where wires and cables are mounted and concealed) will cables be in the way and he might need to remove them from the wall? My guess is that wiring on the wall is not gonna be in the way during walls smoothing, because smoothing under concealed cables is not needed. But I'm not sure. Basically the problem is that current wiring in the house is 30+ years old and it's already spoiled/not usable for the most part, and we have to stay in that house for at least 1 or 2 more months before we can proceed with reno because we have to filter through things first, throw out tons of trash, furniture, clean up, etc. etc. But we need to be able to use electric appliances so we was thinking of rewiring that house first and then 1 month later once everything is prepared we do renovation. Just not sure would doing it in this order cause any issues or is it ok and rewiring is usually done before reno anyway. Thanks.
