Hi, I would like to share with fellow forumners my happy experience with Andy of Home Aluminium Metal works for window installations. In fact I'd found Andy's contact through recommendations in this forum as well. I contacted Andy early Jan when things were not working out with my ID and I knew I had to take things into my own hands if I want to move in on time. I started to pull out items and services that would not affect the overall progress and window was one of those. As mine is a 3Rm resale unit, all windows need to be overhauled. Andy was quick to respond. During our first meeting, he drafted out the quotation on-the-spot after my brief and gave me practical advice on the choices available. I was impressed as getting quotations and follow-up revisions had been tedious with my ID. I also had no basis of comparison for his prices apart from my ID. However Andy assured me that their prices are reasonable. I felt his trustworthiness even though it was our first meeting and paid him $1k deposit upfront. To be honest I had my reservations thereafter. However, within the next two days, Andy text me to arrange a date for his workers to come take measurements. His team also wasted no time and within a couple of days, all windows and grilles were nicely up.(see pics below). It has indeed been a breeze working with Andy and where there were problems with installations, we resolved it together. What was refreshing for me was that he kept the communications throughout and was always responsive. Unlike many suppliers/contractors out there who would stall or become totally unresponsive, after you sign with them. I also found later that his prices are indeed very reasonable. I even got myself a solid gate, in addition, for the same price my ID quoted me for just windows and grilles. It's well installed and nicely painted too. So much so that even my fussy mum was in approval. Hence, I'd strongly recommend "Home Aluminium Metal Works" for all your windows, grilles and gate installation needs.

Just wish to share about the bad experience I had with HoHo Engineering and Renovation Works. Everything seemed fine at first...reasonable rates, accommodative with custom grilles, and prompt appointment made in measurement. After receiving first deposit, everything went downhill. Windows installed had scratches and the rubber seals were poor, misaligned and some plain jutting out. Marker ink was left on the glass, and impossible to clean as it was at the rubber sealed sides. Then grilles were installed and it was a nightmare!!! I had to call them to fix the alignment, the scratches, and gaps. The sides were not joined properly, and the sealant/silicon was a mess...rough and easily causes injuries... and I have a kid! The service was worse, kept taking their own sweet time to get back to me, or arrange the worker to go down and fix. Each time they come down, I'd go inspect, and it would be like NOTHING was done! This went on like 3 times...till finally I had one worker who came down and I pointed out all the areas that needed fixing. He did them on the spot and was the most helpful in my entire experience with HoHo. Not to mention, HoHo is fantastic at CHASING FOR PAYMENT. That would be the ONLY time they would get in touch with me and very prompt. Other than that, it was like I didn't exist. Then when the grilles weren't even fixed, they had the audacity to ASK FOR FINAL PAYMENT. I am definitely not that stupid, to pay them and never hear from them again..with my misaligned and scratched up windows and grilles. Then when it came to the final payment, they told me the amount...which was higher than what I had recorded down. When questioned, they actually said, "Oh, the accounts missed out one payment" and thankfully I had my payment proof. One word of 'Sorry' and yet still they again said the wrong amount...sheesh! NEVER EVER going to use their services again. I do NOT recommend HoHo whatsoever. Their workmanship and service sure befits their name: HoHo...a joke.
Update August 2017: I've removed all sharing feedback and actual pictures of window grills and iron gate by Pang Giap (PG). PG sent me a letter demanding me to remove the pictures and demanded payment from me to compensate for their loss in business and reputation with my previous sharing of photos of their products. I do not wish to have any more dealings with PG hence removing the pictures. There are other review of Pang Giap in this forum which was not written by me and hence unable to remove. Below is the extract invoice as mentioned above." ***No negative comments nor posting of their products pictures**
