Vendors that we have engaged, contacts and reno cost

Finally the renovation is done and we have moved in to new place yesterday .. However, still need some touch-up here and there especially the works from contractor. Let me summarize :

* Carpenter Ah Thong : He was recommended from my colleague, my colleague have really positive comments about him. So we immediately decided to engage him to do all our carpentry works after the first meet up. Was quite happy to work with him, especially his humble attitude really made us feel no regret to engage him. I cannot say all the works are 100% perfect, but they are fine to us and we have no complaint of him. Some of the works are actually belong to contractor but he just claimed as carpenter shall do, and we asked Ah Thong to help us and he never reject us, really thumb up with his service !

* Contractor Ah Huat : This was the first time we do renovation although it was our second purchased house. Due to budget constraint, we hired this contractor instead of interior designer. As most of the works are come from him, including electrician works, plumbing works, masonry works etc., we also faced most of the issues from his works. Beginning with the hdb permit application, he seems not familiar with those paper works and husband has to apply leave to go down hdb to go through with him. After that, there are many other issues such as kerb position was really wrongly placed, painting works are really messed especially the ceiling area are not smooth, some paintings on door are pealing off, final cleaning was not done, the paints that they used are not branded yet still charge for 1.9k … Overall, I will not recommend this contractor. We have to monitor the renovation progress very closely and my husband always have to take leave to see the progress else things will get screw up as he always intended to forget or mix up. We also didn’t find his quotation is cheap and he always will count and charge every single thing, some we really think is overpriced. [ hp : 8139 3299 ]

* Doors from Doctor Door : Quite impressed with the service of the guy who helped us to coordinate, we engaged Doctor Door to do our balcony sliding door, studyroom bi-fold door, bathroom glass door and shower screen. [ phone : 67538109 ]

* Kitchen top from Kompactop : No complaint so far. [ phone : 6886 4283 ]

Renovation Cost : Total less than 50k (carpentry works less than 20k and contractor works less than 30k).

      Hi Jasee, our contractor didn’t really give the breakdown of all the reno cost. He just lump those similar things in one cost, e.g. lay tiles for 2 bathrooms he charged us S$3.4k. Think this was the major cost of bathroom reno, the rest are the bathroom accessories that we have bought. You can see for what we have bought for bathroom.
