I would say go for those recommended ones as renovation not only cost you money and also time. Getting a good one will save you alot of hassles. If it's small money, then no harm trying out, however, renovations do cost alot. So think twice and more than twice. yamseng.gif Have a smooth reno!

Being a 'big shot' in the industry doesn't necessary means they're the best.

I'll say no harm meeting up with the various IDs and go with your feelings.

I engaged one ID for my parents' renovation and what I'm happy about is there is no 'hidden charges' like most firms :P

It's a little more pricey, but I feel like I've bought an insurance LOL.

one advise is to list down EVERYTHING you want from the beginning. You can always remove some or change it after the quote is out.

Any additions after the contract is signed will usually cost more.

Thats a good one.. I am doing a reno soon..Collecting keys in mid/late May (if all is well) still sourcing around. I went to Chew, Hamid&Sons & NID Design Studio. Both Chew & H&S are pretty competitive but they exceeded my budget. Now awaiting from NID Design.

The funny thing, why electrical works are never included in the quotation? And why electrical works are at sky high price? :help:

I guess cause most IDs sub to contractor? You can always find a direct contractor, but I think quite dangerous hahahahahaha.

Contractors may not be cheaper.. The quotes I got from contractors especially those v popular in renotalk are at least 30% higher than my current renovator. Though we engaged ID but we engaged own Aircon and electrician which are cheaper.

So far very pleased with my ID who is very experienced and hands-on type. Feel very comfortable with him and u know your house is in good hands. Reno almost completing

Hope those searching for ID / contractors find their ideal one soon and smooth journey ! :)

ya agreed. some contractors are ex too. to me, i just want to have a peace of mind during the whole process of renovation. so i think ID suits me better. can just leave it to them to do the liaising and coordination work! so now the main thing is to find a reliable ID and sit back and enjoy while they do the magic! long weekend soon! cheers everyone! :yamseng:
