  1. Hello, anyone with experience and knowledge, please help me out here. I engaged a renovation contractor to renovate my HDB EA flat which I stay for more than 20 years. My renovation is only on the kitchen and master-bedroom toilet. In the course of renovation, I came across renotalk website and get to know the budget costs of renovation. All along I know my renovation contractor is charging me a higher price, which I thought to be around 20-30% higher than other contractors. But from renotalk Renovation Calculator, I got to know the price I am paying is very much higher than most people were paying. renotalk Renovation Calculator claimed to be backed by data from over $20,000,000 worth of contracts. The price charged by renovation contractor is equivalent to a 4 rooms resale flat (90 sqm), for a total area (kitchen + bathroom) of less than 16 sqm. The price of renovating a 4 rooms resale flat is from $46,400 - $55,680 (with extensive hacking, masonry, carpentry and plumbing) and the price charged by my renovation contractor is around 52K. Overall, I am disappointed with the renovation, I do not feel it worth the money for the price I paid. The quality and workmanship of the renovation is not up to expectation. The renovation contractor is chasing me for the final payment, I need advise whether the price is exorbitant and whether there is any venue which I can seek redress. Thank you. Regards, William
  2. Reports are crossing the wire this morning showing that now former National Security Advisor Bolton had fundamental disagreements with President Trump over the handling of Iran, particularly, President Trump’s willingness to consider easing sanctions to spur a potential meeting between himself and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Crude Oil Futures dropped from $57.23 a barrel to $56.18. WTI Crude is up 23.96% on the year but volatility remains heightened as tensions between the US and Iran persist. #Crudeoil #Trump #Iran #WikiFX

  4. Hi all, I've recently purchased a resale flat and approached a certain ID firm recommended by a friend. They said they'll get me a good price but honestly it's feeling pretty expensive. I might be wrong so I would like the help of the public please. It's a 3+1 room resale flat that's basically empty. How do I go about this? Should I post the quote I got from him? The whole thing is costing me about 51 thousand right now and another 4325 from the electrician who I also feel is overcharging me. The CAT 6 cable is 150 each though I've seen other people reporting 75-90?? I'm not sure about the prices of the other components. As for the renovation itself, I can upload pictures of the design as well as of the prices on the invoice for you guys to take a look. Please help, I feel like we're being cheated here or something or maybe I'm just inexperienced. Thanks!

  7. I read in a magazine article that homeowners should budget about S$100 per square foot (psf) for renovation costs for HDB resale flats. For a 3-room flat of about 688 sq ft, this would mean a total of S$68,800! Now, I'm aware that magazines tend to jack up the price a little, as a lot of items used are designer items, but this differs a lot from what I've been reading in various forums online. I tend to hear quotes of as low as S$30,000, and S$50,000 would be considered very expensive by most. So, let me hear some advice from you, as a homeowner who is currently selecting Interior Designers - what's a real fair cost for a full HDB 3-room resale renovation, assuming we want our current (very) outdated house to be revamped totally, with no major changes to the existing floorplan? Thanks. PS, if you have any pics of how you did your 3 room bathroom, that would be great too.
  8. Hi. How much did you pay for hacking? What is the range for hacking kitchen cabinet and dividing door between kitchen and living room? Thank you.
  9. Hi all, I am going to collect my keys to my place next year and have started to look for ID for preparation of my flat. Mine is a 4 room BTO which I have opted for flooring and doors to be done. So far I have went to about 4 IDs, some are too expensive and some way too cheap. I even have 1 quotation from an ID for whole house renovation, including changing of kitchen table top from solid surface to quartz, having a full length mirror at dinning, false ceiling for whole house (except 2 bedrooms) and making dinning bench all for $11,888. As a newbie, I would like any advise on how much a rough 4 room BTO renovation would cost and any recommendation so that I can have a better idea. Thank you!
  10. Looking for help. We are unhappy with ID. After signing contract never gave design. Only gave one pathetic design for masterbed wardrobe 3 weeks after signing contract. We finally designed our wardrobes ourselves. Gave ID our design. She input in autocad and print out. At-least hope price is not too bad. ID quote us 1) For masterbed wardrobe 2300 $ for 8 feet using lamitak, with 2 sliding door, and one casement door. 2) For one bedroom, 1750 $ for 7 feet using lamitak but only casement doors (no sliding door). 3) For another bedroom, 2100 $ for 7 feet using lamitak, only casement door. So for casement door wardrobe price is 250 $ per foot for one bedroom and 300 $ per for another bedroom For sliding door wardrobe price is 341.6 $ per foot. We understand IDs take 25% to 30% of price quoted. Because they give design service. But in this case we have to design ourselves. Anybody sign reno package recently? How much they quote for custom build wardrobe using laminate for sliding door and casement door? Is the price right? Thanks.
  11. Hi everyone, need some help on your expert views to see if this quote is reasonable. It's for a condo - no doubt i know IDs/contractors like to jack up prices for condos, but is this reasonable? It's a new condo, so don't need to do any tiling. The main things i'm looking at are space and design consultation, feature wall for TV in the living room and master bedroom, walk in wardrobe (using the existing ones given by the condo) was suggested by the ID.
