Advice Needed On Quotation For Reno Of 4I Resale

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Appreciate any advice on the quotation that our contracter has given us! Ours is a 4'I' resale flat in the East, over 30 years old. But condition is still relatively good. Major works only for the kitchen and toilets but didn't expect the quotation to come up to more than $30K! We are also not engaging an ID as we are bringing over some of our present furniture and we have some ideas of our own already.

Present layout / condition:

- previous owner hacked the wall between the 2 toilets, but we want to separate the toilets again. At first, the contractor quoted $1,100 for a "tempered sand-blasted glass panel" but we found it too expensive. He then quoted $700 for a laminated panel (like those in toilet cubicles). Are his prices reasonable?

- we are installing an additional heater./shower point, plus shifting the location of the present one.

- previous owner hacked the wall between 2 of the bedrooms. We are dividing the bedrooms again, with a gypsum board partition.

- we are retaining the broken marble flooring (for the hall) and parquet flooring (in the bedrooms). Except that the areas where the built-in wardrobes were previously at is now concrete, so we have to fix up some parquet panels again.

- Is it advisable to do re-wiring of the whole house since it is over 30 years old?

Many thanks in advance!

U might wanna attach your floorplan.

Because your quotation didn't state the length n area, it will be difficult for follow bro and sis to comment.
