  1. Like most of us here, we were being introduced to Renotalk T-Blog when we got our own flat. Waited for 3 years, we finally collected our keys.... and stepped into the cement floor of our house. No, it's not a home yet, but it's our house! Yay!! Here's our typical 4-room floorplan. and again, like most of us here, we read up a lot in renotalk, and got to know about Mr K, The Contractor. The Hojichas think it's a waste of money to hire an ID since we have our own designs already.. so we decided to go with Contractors. Back in Mid-November, we collected our keys and quickly made appointment to meet up with Mr K, so excited about it... he was pretty tied-up and busy rushing projects before CNY, so the Hojichas decided to start our reno only after CNY.. Of course, in order to work with Mr K, we took it reallllyyy slow.. some of our neighbours already moved in! In the meantime, we met some others (e.g. The80sStudio, and some other contractors) and received many quotes as well. The strange thing is, the quotes all came back around the same price. How to pick?? So we are stuck.... * fast forward * anyways.... in d end, we signed with Mr K. I still believe if he wants to do things fast, he can be super fast, coz due to permit issued dates pressure 3 walls were hacked within a day, but now we are kinda stuck with the next problem, the electric works! Here comes the lil' story... sorry if it's a bit too lengthy and wordy.. The amount of electric works we required was first quoted to us as $2100. But we find it a bit expensive, and requested to see it in breakdown by points... so he replaced the $2100 with points unit price.. and we signed on that, coz when we calculated on our own, it's below $2100. Then after all the hacking of walls, it's time to work on electricity, so K brought his electrician up to our place to see, and this time, his electrician came back with a $3200 quote. >_< It's only now then we know, shifting concealed switches/points/fan points are separate charges, not in the breakdown K provided us with...... and installation of hanging lights Vs. normal lights have different price tags too! Mr K told me that if we are not ok with this quote, it's ok, we can find our own electrician....... so now we are in the midst of requesting for quotes from other electricians for comparison. Renotalkers, if you have any good recommendations, pls intro to us. Thank you very much. Story to be continued..... wish us good luck!
  2. Recently we moved into new BTO flat. It was our first renovation. We had looked at about 5 renovation quotations before settling for ID Marcus of Renzz. He's fast and efficient with our queries and questions. His pro-active attitude won us over. Initially we had frustrating problem with bank loans but he was really nice about it, we really appreciate his understanding. Throughout the whole renovation progress, we would say it's a good experience, he would update us frequently through watsapp or email (even late at night!). Good thing is he did not hard sell any furnishings or products. We bought own lightings, sinks etc. and he installed for us. Our home concept is basic and simple but could see that Marcus put in effort for our simple job. We also needed to move in urgently which he managed to rush deadline for us. Overall good job with living room mirror, bedroom wardrobes, kitchen cabinet (except a small hiccup with drawer panel), shoe cabinet (another small hiccup due to miscommunication on ventilation holes) and vanity cabinet. We had to point out these small hiccups so others will know we are not fake new flat owners advertising for Renzz. Another thing, Marcus also provide after sale service which we think is a sincere deal from an ID.
