  1. Hi all. My wife and I recently embarked on a new chapter of every average Singaporean's life of getting a BTO. We started our renovation shopping pretty late after getting our keys but were fortunate to have come across this forum to learn from experienced folks, especially on things like defects checking and safety measures to take when engaging renovation firm. We did our renovation shopping in Dec 2015 and started work in the first week of Jan 16. As our requirements were very basic, we are already more than halfway through our renovation (carpentry delivered) and can most likely finish up before the end of the month, all thanks to them being willing to expedite our reno to finish before CNY. We mainly did renovation on kitchen, shower kerbs and wardrobe and the price was very reasonable, albeit not the lowest. The contractor promised us that there will be no hidden charges (tiles, etc) and offered to help us install any accessories we may have including curtain rods which can be purchased from places like Ikea or neighbourhood curtain shops. As our renovation is still in progress, I cannot comment on workmanship but I am quite sure that I wouldn't be disappointed as they showed me some of their ongoing projects around my area before we engaged them and they were very confident of their workmanship. All casement and drawers were promised to come with soft closing (Excel) and screw holes would be covered for aesthetic purposes. Will post up our finished project in time to come. Do let me know if you're interested and I'll share their contacts with you. Happy renovation shopping!
  2. Hi all, I bought a 5-room resale flat at Sembawang. I want to share my experience on house renovation and I hope my sharing helpful for you. Few months before my renovation, I went to a few ID but most of the time they either respond slowly or very hard push. The quotation could be varied from one to another. When the time I feel quite lost, I am glad that I happen to know this reliable and responsible contractor from a hardware shop. To my surprise, the quotation is reasonable but most importantly is the great workmanship. My husband and I decided to engage this contractor because of his :- 1) Prompt reply and responsible. I remember the first time I texted him he replied me very fast. 2) Friendly attitude. At first, I told him that I have another carpentry contractor and he is willing to coordinate with him. I feel secured and comfortable to talk to him. At the end, we found is easier to let him do everything since the price he quote for carpentry work is similar to the contractor that I plan to engaged before. 3) Reasonable price
  3. Our endeavour started 2 year back when we decided to tie the knot. As a typical savvy(kiassus) Singaporean ;p i can say most of us when started to survey for contractors the only criteria in our mind was to get a cheap and good one perhaps hoping to buy a Benz at a Toyota price but dream on.. The search continued for months. It was when after the quotation gathered, we realised that it seemed impossible to have our dream house within the budget we catered as all quotation gathered was above 10k-20k of our initial budget . So the argument begins whether to cancel my dream craftstone TV wall or to cancel her accessories display shelf? Fainting spell.. Then.. Praise The Lord.. Yes our prayers answered , we came across this contractor recommendation thread in Renotalk. We asked for PM and met this Guy and boom! Our dream surfaced. He was from a HDB licensed direct fabricator firm which means they have their own carpenters , plumbers and electricians. And so explained , they wont be as calculative over the charges due to sublet or coordinating factor which we truely appreciated as per regards about the standard industry mark up.. Initially ,to be frank i wasn't that confident that they can deliver the standard that we projected initially cos at times thinking back , it was too good to be true but guess what , it's really either fated or Singapore was too small a city . We bang into my ex colleague from AIA when he brought us to view his ongoing project at Sengkang. They were the owners . Working review positive and confidence grew. Their workmanship was overall acceptable and detailed. After all cos its all handicraft so we didnt asked for perfection, but they did every rectifications to every parts that we pointed out to our satisfication. Appreciated his service to make our dream house came true within our expected budget , 2 thumbs ups for their hardwork and keep it up.. Will upload and share the before/after photo of our beautiful love nest in my next post . Look forward to it . Cheers. Signing Off, Weiliang (Proud Home Owner)
  4. I'd like to share my positive experience with Inside Living Pte Ltd. I was recommended by my friend to engage Alex Tai from Inside Living for my BTO renovation. I wanted a design that is out of the norm with rounded edges (with the thought of having a child-friendly design). He came up with the design quickly and patiently listened to my feedback on his 3D drawings through several appointments. He took my feedback into consideration and went through a few rounds of amendments before we finalize on the design I like. Through my appointments with him, he showed his experience in the choice of colors to match the look and feel I wanted. He brought me and my husband along to choose floor tiles, toilet and kitchen accessories and lightings. We had a good experience with the shops that he brought us to, where there is a wide variety to choose from and offered at a good price and also offer good after-sales service. He was able to recommend lights that are modern and also able to bring out the ambience. During renovation, I requested on exact measurements on some of my carpentry and kitchen top. Alex noted on my requirements and took the effort to check on the workers to ensure that the carpentry and kitchen top are done exactly to the measurements I wanted. With his experience, he was able to recommend designs that is lively (the look & feel I wanted) and also ensure its easy to maintain. He helped to check on the finishings to ensure the workmanship is up to expectations and I am happy with the final workmanship and the prompt service provided. His workers did a good job to clean up the house prior to handing over the house keys to us, this really helped cos we need not spend too much effort to clean the house prior to move in. His workers were also polite and ensured that their works are up to standards and we were satisfied. My friends and family also commented that the workmanship of my renovation is well done. I would highly recommend Alex from Inside Living for renovation as he ensures expectations are met with quality work delivered. He has also been patient and responsive to my queries throughout the renovation period and even after renovation
