Hi, I contacted Mr Seah 96363520 based on the recommendation in this thread. He has closed down his shop & will come down to your house to take measurement. He replied promptly & came down on the same day after I called him. He quoted me 7k plus just for redo of kitchen alone while others only quote me 5k. I finally give in after coaxing. But he wants me to paid a deposit of $300 on the spot which I finally give in & paid the only $200 I have at home after his constant assurance that his work will be good. After deep consideration, I realised I made a haste decision & call him up 5 days later (he went travelling for past 4 days). After hearing my request, he just simply say his company can't cancel any order. Before I pay the deposite, he still tell me that his company is a reputable company with no black records. I told him that CASE has allowed consumer a 10 days Cooling period. But he just claim that 'not his company'. He simply refused to pay me back my deposit & slam down my phone. I'm not putting blame on anyone but just need to raise awareness to consumers Not to support company like these. Who knows he has been earning a living collecting deposite from people. . .
but generally i heard that contractors dont really go by black n white. they go by trust. thats why when u engage a contractor have to be more careful. I have heard of stories of contractors disappearing for a few days after beginning work.
My bad... didn't have much experience with reno stuffs. Thank you for highlighting this point Liliput. Will be more careful. Geraldine, his own company registered under Seah soon Lee decoration contractor.
