I engage this company as I have spoken with them a year before previously and thought that their pricing was reasonable (I have 3 quotes, theirs is not the lowest) and their response time was good. However, all that changed once the contract was signed and payments of 10% & 40% were paid. Renovation works not carried out to agreed specifications. Many re-works are needed due to poor workmanship and no supervision and monitoring by ID or site supervisor. Paid a couple of thousands of dollars for wall screeding, but ended up with the screeding so thin and usage of wrong material (gypsum power instead of white cement) that a light knocks to the wall will cause the paint to chipped off. This show the lack of overall experience of the company. Bathrooms wall and floor tiles had to be replaced after partially completed due to mismatch of the grouting lines from the wall tiles to the floor tiles and also the uneven finished of the tiles in general. The foremen and manager said that the grouting lines have to be wider at around 3 mm for the floor due to the non-availability of tiles size with 299 mm width anywhere in Singapore. They claim that only tile sizes with width of 297 mm are available in Singapore. They brought me to a supplier (Soon Bee Huat@Changi) and together they told me that tiles size with width of 299 mm is not available in Singapore. By then, I was already sceptical of their words and decided to find out for myself. True enough, I managed to find a supplier (Hafary@Eunos) that have the necessary tiles with width of 299 mm for use and the grout width can now be at 1 mm which definitely make the laid tiles looked much much better. This show that the company do not have the interest of their customer at heart. Poor quality of work for wall tiles with a hollow sound when knocked on it and now tiles cracking and popping up too. Overlaying the floor with vinyl tiles was a bad experience for me too. Unevenness and gaps appearing on the vinyl floor. This could be poor workmanship and inferior material recommended for use. Skirtings started popping out from the walls. I told the ID, the manager and the foreman that there are many areas that they can improve on and that they can use this as a learning opportunity to gain more experience. My advice might have fallen on deaf ears. The only saving grace is that their foreman is honest and a responsible guy. I could write on and on, on the frustration faced with this "ID" company. Engage them at your own risk...

Bravo! Thank you for make our dream home came true. The renovation process is smooth. The designers from Albedo Design are professional and experienced.
