Looking for good contractors? Click here for your request

Pricing seems reasonable, except for maybe plumbing works.

Some points to clarify with ID, just my suggestion 

1) # of accessories that you can install for each toilet

2) # of drawers for MBR wardrobe & kitchen cabinets, best to indicate in quotation as some IDs only provide x number of drawers & require top-up if you need more

3) glass backing, is it tempered? 

4) kitchen, are you expecting them to provide dish rack, install sink & tap/mixer, install hood/hob?

5) toilet, need to install tap/mixer for basins? Sorry, not sure what does bto flat include or exclude nowadays, so don't know if some of these items already provided for.

6) Painting works, done when, once after air con piping but before carpentry, & touch-up after carpentry?

These rates are quite good and reasonable but its better if you can search for other options. May be you will find something cheaper. So keep looking for it. Recently a friend of mine got his kitchen renovated and he said quite good things about the contractor and was affordable as well. The offered him good offers so why not try these out. Instead of going for your old option you can check out here.
