Hi Weiyan,

Thank you so much for the advice. I was thinking I'll probably not get many replies and then it will still boil down to my own preference. There are too many posts and since I'm so occupied with the renovation, it's tough to scroll through the many pages and check out the details. Nevertheless, I'll do so next week when I have time. After all, it's a decision i'll have to face all the way till I decide to move out!

Thanks! (:

Hi Lucidacid,

you can check out the below blog & connect with home owner. She bought her bricks from TB. Hope this helps!

From my own home experience,yes need to top up as the FOC is barely enough.Discuss with the appointed HDB contractor,inform him you are using what kind of mm lamnates or vinyl. For mine im using 5mm vinyl and i ask the hdb contractor to top up up to the height difference . I inform him beforehand when i was given the contact number of the hdb contractor that i need to top up and inform him i know the requirements. Coffee $$ as everyone always say.

Hi Chower!

Yes I'm doing laminates, which is 11mm thick. I got HDB to do screeding for 50mm height, which is 10mm more than the standard. I paid $550 for it and they used prepaid cement for my house. We did give the workers some additional money but it didn't work. We merely gave them the chance to tok us. Just call the supervisor if it's not smooth enough. Their supervisor's word has more power than money. Depending on your district/estate, the allowance for bumps is 2-3mm or 3-5mm. Unfortunately, for Ang Mo Kio Town Council, 3-5mm is their allowance. So if we have bumps within that range, it is still considered smooth. :jawdrop:

Hope this helps! (:

Hello FR Neighbour,

Very happy reading through your informative boards! I am from 470A :) Can I find out how much is your contractor quoting for the work "Aircon Ledge for living room".

Hi!

My contractor did it for free for us! (: If not, I think the price that he wanted to quote us was $400 ):

Hi!

For J + E, because they are in demand, our house can only be completed by the start of August though we contacted them end May when we collected our keys. Its $32k now including electrical works. They overlayed our toilet and kitchen wall and floor tiles for us, we provided the tiles. We outsourced our living + bedrooms flooring as we got laminates! (they only do tiling) (:

Hope this helps! (:
