I have a bad news. my floor tiles pop up on Sun 14 Dec morning before our guests came for Summer 1 mth celebration at about 10.30am. My neighbour abv which Vincent mentioned Keith hse oso same problem. Theirs was worst than us. more portion of the whole living room.
on Mon we called the HDB to rectify the problem. initially they only wanted to repair the affected area only. They not willing to redo the whole hall. Tue they started the job. the worker hack up the affected tiles, but as they hack, it spread. the spreading got worst and the 70% of the hall was affected. since the damage on the flooring is oready 70%, we requested them to do up the whole hall. we had arguement with the HDB contractor as well as the HDB officer. finally they agree. but our TV console and shoe cabinet had to tear down cos it's fix. We want them to bear the cost of taking out the fixture as well as to fix it back. the negotiate is not finalise but we still hv to go ahead and tear down the fixture in order for the work to proceed. Now Summer and myself have to move to my mum hse temporaily. hubby has to take leave to supervise the work. sigh.... all in a mess. after that we have to clean the whole hse like mad.
according to the worker and HDB, we are not the only one that having this problem. Ocean, you hv companion. there are a few hse that happening too. but seems like they do not know what is the problem causing it. Their so called professional engineer still cannot comment on it.
IF there is anyone having the same problem reading this, please contact me. We should united and bring this matter up. This is unacceptable! becos of this, I hv to cut short my confinement and move to my mum hse to stay. I'm afraid that Summer might be affected by the dust. It's so troublesome as we hv to bring so many things over.
I'm so sorry to hear that denise... HDB is really toooooo much.. So u would need to get your reno contractor to tear down the tv cabinet izzit? then after tear down, can it still be fixed back?
In fact, I really regret not removing HDB tiles.. Tot of changing the tiles altogether.. get from outside..
Their engineer is really hopeless.. they should have known much better than hacking will spread and affect the other tiles wat!! what engineers u call DAT!!!!! but they change to their tiles then still got problem how???
Maybe u can try to bring this matter up to the MP and if it doesn't help, BLOW it up by complaining to the media n make public aware that this is the kind of quality HDB provides. For sure that this will be a tiring n continous process coz I'm going thru the complaining process too.
Currenly, I'm having a dispute with my neighbours as they are hanging their laundry outside the common corridor n obstructing the way. We actually complained to the TC n they never seems to get thg done. And it has been a year since we complained n nothg much has been done. So we actually threatened them that if they are not going to do anythg, we will BLOW up this thg n bring the case to MP. N if worst come to worst, we will report to media. N guess wat, there's some improvement now.
My conclusion is that we really have to b firm in our stand n not to be soft-hearted.
what confinement? no more confinement. Tue morning oready sent my confinement lady back home since they starting on Tue. now have to eat anything that is convenient. didn't bother liao. anywhere no mood. I beginning to lose my appetite and feeling weak now. tired and stress.
thinking of having to clean up the whole house after the renovation finish, want to faint liao. we hv to clean up thoroughly before bringing Summer back home. anyone offer to help????
wow! I was just kidding only and didn't expect my neighbours so helpful. Thanks for your offer. maybe need you guys to help Justin to bring out the heavy item from the bedroom. well, we don't even know when can we start cleaning and shift back. if weekend maybe can ask u all to help. weekday a bit difficult. but weekend is so precious, how would I dare to trouble you all.
Val, mostly likely if u at home when we back doing the cleaning, may need to trouble you to leave Summer at your place.
there is an article in the Straits Times forum section talking about house problem in Woodlands. Subject: "HDB shld review quality of workmanship" Sounds very familiar. wonder if it's referring to our area. finally someone wrote in. shall see if anyone reply.
