Managing Your Singapore Renovation Costs
There are a lot of Singaporeans who do spend more than they set aside for their intended renovation works. The problem is not that they did not set a budget; the problem could be because they did not plan carefully as to what they need to do, what they need to scrimp on and what they need to splurge on. Here are a couple of very important tips to help you manager your renovation costs here in Singapore.
Remember your budget. The golden rule is to remember your budget and add a 10 per cent buffer to it. Before you go ahead and decide to buy this and that, you need to price everything you need out. If you need help, you can always ask family or friends or even go to forums and find out the average price for a home renovation. Forums are especially helpful as they help you learn to understand the whole renovation experience. You can also get a few advices from forum users on which Singapore renovation companies to avoid and which ones to hire for your renovation project. Do remember that it is not worth compromising quality over cheap Singapore renovation contractors. All you need is to make sure that you get your money’s worth.
Be careful when choosing licensed Singapore renovation contractors. Another important task that you should carefully do is to ensure that you get the right Singapore renovation contractors. Get written or emailed quotations and estimates from at least three licensed renovation contractors and make sure that you browse through their portfolio and check references for feedback. Also, you have to read every fine print when signing contracts. Watch out for low-ballers or new renovation contractors who have no portfolio to show and no references to give you.
