  1. Hi everyone. i’m super new to this forum pls forgive if this topic is under wrong category recently bought this house and when we were about to engage contractors to change our living room windows we bumped into a huge roadblock. I’ve attached pics of my living room window basically we are unable to change the window or window grills because its attached to the concrete. Apparently we need to engage with PE (precision engineering) to even remove the grills which will cost more than $3k. we went to check with 2 of our neighbours below to see whether their window grills looked like ours. I’ve Attached my neighbours windows and its not the same as ours (the below part) is there any other alternatives for this? How can we refurbish the windows and grills if we are unable to change?
  2. Hi, I will be getting my BTO 5-room flat anytime around July-September next year and I have been looking around for contractors or renovation company that do window grille which is preferably safe for home with cats. This is important because my unit will be on the 26th floor and I worry that the ordinary window grille will not be suitable for my home as my cats can definitely jump out of the window if they're not careful. And cats are curious. It will be very helpful if anyone would kindly recommend me any renovation company or contractors that specialized in custom window grille and preferably one that is not too over-budget. I have surveyed LeGate but I'm not confident with the material that is being used for their invisible window grille. I would prefer if the window grille is horizontal aluminum with a min of 5 cm spacing or whichever would be better for my cats. Do let me know! You can PM me or reply under this forum subject. Thanks!

  4. Hi, I am wondering if there are contractors who are willing/ able to change the color of my green metal window grill color to black. The Condo Management has stated that I cannot change the facade of the building, hence I can only change the inner portion of the metal window frame and grill. Can this be done? Thanks ?

  6. Hi there! I have just kick started my 2-months long renovation but am already bogged down by two troubles 1) Unsatisfactory quality of work provided by window installation contractor The window contractor provided sub-par service e.g cement was unevenly applied such that some stretches are more hollow. This is not a joking situation as my flat is a corner-unit, hence should the windor falls due to poor installation, it could easily kill passerbys or break cars. On the first complain, the contractor has agreed to re-do the cementing. In their own defence, the contractors claimed that the unsatisfactory work was due to the fact that the employees are not well-trained in handling high-rise hdb flats; more trained in handling landed houses. Also, the dust filter that should be securely stuck to the bottom-edge of the window easily peel-ed off!! What can I do if the re-cementing is still unsatisfactory? 2) Incessant complaining from neighbour staying directly below our unit Since the start of our renovation, this neighbour has been making persistent complains about our noisy renovation. However, our contractors have completed the major hackings within the assigned dates. On everyday basis, renovation begins after 9am and ends before 6pm. Apart from complains on noise, she has also accused us of ruining her ceiling. Prior to kicking start our renovation, we had requested to enter their house and took photos of their ceilings. Photos were provided as evidence that her current state of ceiling were the same prior to our renovation. She has since insisted for us to pay for her maintenance else she would sue us. Any advice on this second trouble? Would appreciate any advice/suggestion on these double troubles :(
  7. HI, does anybody know where to get a replacement for HDB window flush bolt, used in the aluminium casement windows? They are greyish plastic and have a metal piece/bolt sticking out to lock down the window on top and bottom. With wear and tear, the metal piece tends to break out from the plastic casing. I saw a brand called Lock Plus, each system costs $17+, quite steep considering that stainless steel ones can be less than $10. Anybody knows where to get cheaper ones or alternative solution?
  8. Hi All.. Need your sincere advise as currently I'm doing toilet reno works since 3 weeks ago but I have 3 main problems now and conractor is doing a very bad job: 1. Floor tiling not have enough gradient that water is ponding in dry area as attached picture. My contractor claim my tile too big. My toilet dimension is 1.5 (width)x 1.9 (length) x 2.3m (height) and my floor tile size is 30cm x 60cm. Any advice to rectify this water ponding issue? Any recommendation for other contractor? 2. My door frame was damaged. I'm just aware today that my door frame was chiseled so it can closed properly. I have no issued before the renovation work commenced. Anyone recommend to fix this? 3. Toilet window not properly installed. Sideway protuding by 3mm. Whats the risk to reinstall or readjust the window? Will this damage the wall tile ? I learned my lesson the hard way . This contractor just did such a bad job and this small toilet cost me above average cost. The painting job is so ridiculously bad (attached pic) I have paid 65% and Im thinking to engage another party using the remaining 35% . Thanks for all your advices.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for ideas for a ground floor unit's main living room window that allows for privacy and yet still let light and air in.
  10. Hi, I am urgently looking for one window PE that I can trust to help us get approval for our bedroom window on a resale 5 room HDB. if anyone of you have someone that charge within the range of 1.8k to 2k around this range please kindly PM this no. I am reachable at 9844 3936. Thank you in advance as my house cannot proceed due to the window at the moment. Really appreciate if someone can share some information with us. As our contractor recommended one that quoted 4-5k I think this is ridiculous.

  12. 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**
  13. Hello~ This is my first post in this forum. I hope I am posting in the right category. I'd like to ask for your opinion. I have a window just after the main door, however they're facing the next block's wall and really not so much sunlight coming in... From my floor plan that the dining "corner" option would be only once you open the door that corner which is very... unwelcoming imho. Something need to be done to that corner, and I am thinking it's the window... What do you think?
  14. Visit our Facebook page @windowsafesg to purchase your window restrictor for your windows. https://www.facebook.com/windowsafesg/ Selling at $35 per piece (without installation); you can get your contractor to install for free! However, if you need installation, we do provide installation package as follows: $72 base price (1 to 6 pieces); $12 per subsequent pieces. See description below for more information regarding this window restrictor, a product from United Kingdom. ...... The window restrictor is lockable, and can be unlocked using a key if necessary, and the window will then be able to be opened fully. Due to this reason, it is possible to fit the Max6mum lockable window restrictor on fire escape windows, provided that the user keeps the key within easy reach. One of the important features on the Max6mum window restrictor is the strength of the cable once locked into the locking system. Some window restrictors claim that the strength of the cable exceeds 500kg. However, even though this may be true, it does not mean anything as it is the strength of the cable once locked into the locking system that actually matters. The Max6mum window restrictor, once the cable in locked into the locking system, can withstand forces over 100kg, which is more than enough to take the weight of any child. This is twice the industry standard which is 50kg! The cable itself is made from hardened steel, which makes it extremely difficult to cut. It makes the window restrictor ideal for customers who are based on ground floors, and want to leave their windows open but are afraid that they may be broken in to! What makes the window restrictor even more unique is that the Max6mum Window Restrictor is Biomaster Protected – Protection against the dangers you can’t see. Biomasterensures effective antibacterial protection for the effective lifetime of the product, helping to keep surfaces clean and hygienic, and reduces the threat of cross-contamination from harmful bacteria – such as MRSA, E.coli, Campylobacter and Listeria and even viruses like the common cold and influenza. Window restrictors, especially those found in commercial properties such as schools, hospitals and hotels, are often handled by many adults and children and can therefore facilitate the spread of harmful infections. Biomaster AT300 suppresses the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi and bacteria which cause unpleasant odors, discoloration, staining, deterioration or corrosion only. Manufactured products incorporating Biomaster AT300 may not make any public health claims relating to antimicrobial activity without first obtaining an EPA registration for the manufactured product which permits such claims.
  15. is casement or sliding windows better for kitchen? Any major price differences? I like casement since they can all be opened up but i am worried in future after wear and tear the window might fall off! Also you'll get your hands all wet when closing them when raining. For sliding windows, i don't fancy cleaning the 'tracks' as they collect dust but they seems 'safer' on a long term basis. Any advice?
