I think it's about 3-5k (?), depending on the size of your house.

Usually they charge by unit cost... but bear in mind it also include lining up the wiring from the mains to the lighting / power point, wire materials labour etc. HDBs rewiring usually between 3-5k as summersann has indicated. If you want a lot of power sockets and have many little light points it can get expensive really quickly.

Just for your reference

Light point ~ $40 per point

Light install ~ $8 per point

Cable ~ $100 per point

Heater ~ $100 per point

Single socket 13A ~ $40-50 per pt

Double scoket 13A ~ $50-60 per pt

Air cond 15A ~ $100-120 per pt

DB Board ~ $350-500 per board

Ceiling fan ~ $70-80 per install

Don't pm me for contact because I have none. This is from my various quotes by IDs/contractors. You can do an estimate yourself first in terms of your lighting / power points and see the cost and what people quote if it is in the ballpark.

I did my reno beore CNY and that was about the rate I paid, my main contractor told me the rate will go up by $5 per point after CNY due to the increase in the foreign worker levy, and there might be another round of adjustment mid year when some new foreign worker policy is in place.

You should be able to get some discount if you are not engaging the electrician's service through an ID or a main contractor? I am very happy with the workmanship and attitude of the young malaysian electrician boss, didnt ask for discount but got him to help put up the hammock and 5-6 big posters/paintings. took him 2-3 hours to do the job.

I think the latter quote that you have gotten seems quite ex. If compared to what Alan quoted me, now his rate seems ok though he never put a cap on the number of lighting & fan points he will help to install in the lump sum quoted. Hope he is not too calculative?

I think I found a solution to transport my craft bricks / stone. I got a transport for Singapore 200 bucks to transport directly to my place. hopefully they can do it during working hours so that the contractors will be around to help carry it to my place.

Hi Jayke, do you mind sharing the transport contact and the JB contact for craftstone

Hi Niko !

PMed you the contact!

The price I think depends on how long and wide and what else you are looking for in the concrete sink.

So my pricing might not be related to yours. However for reference, I have seen the following prices, 450 , 680 , 980 .

The pricing differs a lot because, some is just purely concrete sink , some includes tiling, like mine includes, sink support, tiling, laminate, drawers , casement door. Also the length of the sink support matters. mine is about 6 feet. most is shorter than this.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jaykr, I have receive it. Thank you. Wow your concrete sink is so big.. I just need 4 feet with alum door, very simple one. :)

Hi, just know a electrical guy when I went to my new flat today, sawing him doing some wiring for my neighborhood. Maybe you like to give him a call to check out the pricing. He name is G. B. Tay 8188 1139. Hope this help. :)
