After many rounds of searching for a company, we decided on In-Expat because we were impressed with the in-house carpentry and initial quotations supplied by our designer Jacinda. The quote was not the cheapest that we received but we went ahead as we felt that the communication at the beginning was good. After a few iterations, Jacinda was easy to work with, incorporating our design ideas and trying to balance that with our space. She also took many trips down to select the right tiles and materials for our finishings. Costs were controlled and we did not encounter any price inflation (as I encountered in previous renovation jobs). While our renovation took longer (since we were not in a rush), the work was done well. There were some hiccups at the end regarding the vinyl flooring, as well as issues with a third-party aircon installer. Nevertheless, we were happy with the end results. The carpentry work was top notch and even experienced eyes praised it. Could not be happier with the work, still some room for improvement with regards to the processes of choosing furnishings (lightings etc).

Recommended by my friend to Joey for my home ID work. Had looked around and enquired with several IDs and eventually chose In-Expat because of her attention to details and listened to my concept and ideas. Accommodative to changes and different ideas and process has been largely smooth going. The team is experienced and reliable.

We got to know about IN Expat through Qanvast. After getting quotes from various ID companies, In- Expat (Joey) was one of the first few to contact us. During the first meet up, Joey worked well within our budget and recommended a wide range of options in design. She was able to accommodate changes that I had requested for in her design and paid careful attention to ensure that we were working within our means. What makes Joey a joy to work with is how transparent she is when it comes to advising on the cost breakdown and material use for all the carpentry. Even though they are not the cheapest among all the quotations we had, we shortlisted them because of their creativity in design and the excellent customer service. During the renovation works, Joey and her partner, Gui fang always provided timely updates on the renovation progress and whenever there’s a need to deviate from the plan, they would also check in with us. We are grateful for their sacrifice on weekends to help us look for furniture that were suitable for our design even on the smallest details like the handle for our drawers. When it was time to hand over the house, they were quick in rectifying any defects. Our house turned out to be close to 90% of the 3D drawing that was shared with us. We will definitely approach/recommend IN-Expat(Joey & Gui fang) for any renovation work. They are trustworthy and for people like us who are not familiar with renovation, they provided much-needed advice and a peace of mind knowing that our house was in good hands throughout the renovation. Kudos to the team!!!! Job well done indeed!

This is our second home and we had certain expectations which Eddy met, without any compromise. He understands our needs and provided good suggestions on how to make the space and design work for us. Eddy is very professional and managed the project very well despite our tight schedule and him falling quite ill during the reno period. In-Expat's in-house carpentry is a plus, and quality is good. They are also responsive and rectified issues quickly. Definitely trustworthy and reliable.
