Please compare both quotes.. some ID like mine can get better rates .. because they have bulk prices.. i tried went to expo fair walk in ask the same shop.. my price much ex than my ID given..
Agreed. But small project ID might want to do. Cos like I mentioned earlier, for my this house, I gotten ID to do the full height wardrobe for us which cost $1320. MIL room same thing only cost us $1200 with mirror inside. Maybe I wanna get the wardrobe manufacturer to install all bedrooms wardrobe for us. ID only do flooring and kitchen and the drilling stuffs

In this case can lay the whole house with wood looking tiles right? Then it will be so much cheap. For me, so long it's cheap and not slippery will do. But a big no no to laminated flooring cos my house is mostly wet. I am using my friend as the ID for my new house. Previously asked her to design and built a study room for us, she did a great job. This one I kept texting her, I think she too busy and no time to entertain me. So sad... So many things wanna ask her, but don't dare and cannot get an answer. Maybe also because my house will come later (2 years time).

Saw this on google. Should I get the company to do flooring for us directly or go thru ID?

Just talked to a fren who got his keys recently. He shared that he spent 25k on what most IDs quoted as 30-35k. He sourced most things individually. With an ID, you can receive updates with photos thru whatsapp. Without ID, own self update by being there physically. But he did complained that it was tiring as compared to when his parents reno their house thru an ID previously.


I really have no idea how reno works nor their market price...

Wow... very well plan. Once gotten keys, I need to find buyers for my resale flat and get ID to take a look at the actual unit. Since we are on tight budget, we will do the basic reno. Wardrobe for 3 bedrooms, kitchen cabinet, flooring.
For lighting, bathroom accessories, etc, I will buy from Taobao first before taking keys. Shipping will takes about 1 month
