Uncle Ah Soon is delaying my house work again... I gave him 6 weeks to finish the work when he actually only ask for 4 weeks. But now, 3 weeks have passed but only plastering and hacking of floor tiles are done. He promised to finish the renovation on time, if not, I will stay in hotel and he will pay.. I hope I dun get to stay at hotel 81.. LOL.. I told him tat my furniture and electrical will be sending in on the next day of HO, hope he can hurry up and finish my house.

How long do yall think that it will take usually to finish up the rest of the renovation of my house? Im afraid that if I push him too hard, the job will be half-heartedly done. I msged him and let him noe already tat if the renovation is done not up to my expectation, I will ask him to redo it for me.. Whenever I msg himi in chinese, there's always no reply. I wonder if he really reads it.

I hope everyone out there who is interested in asking uncle ah soon to do their renovation, pls have the correct set of mind that such things will happen. I love his persistence in maintaining the high quality of work during reno, but you haf to be able to take his delays and delays.. I gave him the second payment of 20% even before he send the tiles to my house cos I tot I might not be around to pass him the money. But 2 weeks haf passed and not a single tile is near my house..

So, pls remember to hold the money until you really see something done. I post this just to vent my frustration but I still like the cheaper quote tat uncle ah soon is able to provide for me.

Looking for good contractors? Click here for your request
hi

after reading about Ah Soon the contractor here, is he trustable? too busy?

i need a contractor with reasonable charges , pls pm tel. no

This is the peak period for renovation as school holidays approaching and Festivie session approaching...so most contractor will be very occupied (the better ones)

My advice to you is either you have a longer lead time, start after the peak period or discuss with the contractors and to put everything in black and white.

My contractor practice turning down request for quote when he cannot handle anymore, that is why I engage him...

I've actually did try the suggestions provided here like sms him in chinese to call me back. Not working for me. However last update is I've managed to get uncle, and he somehow said that the tiles are already there and will call back and confirm with me again. Anyway, I think he sort of misunderstood or something. He said he will confirm with me, but asked me to take down my comments on what I've said? There was nothing in particularly special about what I've said. I'm not sure what was conveyed to him but he definitely thought there were bad remarks passed. But what I see from here are all the true experiences of every person who've engage Uncle Soon for his/her project.

so is ur house tiling works starting yet? now seems like the peak season, every the tiler manager personally did my tiles ( and i must say, the manager workmanship is fantastic!!)

update us on the progress ok?
