What about ICI Wash & wear. Any comments? we are choosing that for most of our walls. Pentalite only if you like Matt look...may be harder to wash?? We used Jotun a long time ago when staying in University Hall of Residence. Quite good quality.
Jimmy of Color Creation Painting Service is our painter.
4 room flat @ S$950 (4 colours) but we chosen more than 4 colours with no additonal charges.
My FH & I were very pleased with his service & work.
my contractor quoted me $1800 for painting a mansionette. He charges us extra for doing plastering for out 3 rooms upstairs(which i think is right) but the problem is that he charges us additional for painting the window grills, the 3 rooms, the doors, door frame. Is this the norm for all contractors to do so?
mine is a masionette,being quoted by my contractor the following(unlimited colours,ICI or nippon). Wonder if this is too exp?
replaster kitchen ceiling & kitchen
plaster 3 rooms' wall and ceiling 1200
paint servant room, dinning, balcony, kitchen,3 rooms existing window grills, staircase handrail and iron bar 350
to paint door & door frame at main door, servant room, kitchen entrance,
3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms" 250
to paint whole hse wall & ceiling,pvc pipes and copper pipe with ICI paint and repair wall 1800
Mine is a 5 room with floor area 125sqft. Whole house painting incl all metal & wooden work like toilet pipes, wooden main door etc. My contractor is charging me $1150.
It's funny that your contractor want to charge for painting of 3 rooms as well?!!! Then what is the S$1.8K for?
here is the content of what the contractor charged us
to replaster kitchen ceiling & kitchen bathroom@$250
to plaster 3 rooms' wall and ceiling@$1200
to paint servant room, dinning, balcony,kitchen,3 rooms existing window grills,
staircase handrail and iron bar@$350
to paint door & door frame at main door, servant room, kitchen entrance, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms@$250
to paint whole hse wall & ceiling,pvc pipes and copper pipe with ICI paint and repair wall@$1800
Total: $2400 (excluding plastering work for 3 rooms & kitchen)
ya thats what i am puzzled too, hence need more advice!
We're v pleased cos they actually came back again yesterday and did a great job touching up spots that our other contractors dirtied. He didn't charge us a cent extra and did all the extra work cheerfully. Really impressive workmanship too. Five stars for this painter from me!
Hi all, me and FH just got our house and prob starting reno works in couple of weeks. our ID is suppose to do our painting works for us and has quoted us 1300 for a 5 rm flat, ours is a brand new flat so just need to paint over as i tink HDB only paint like 1 coat for you and some of the plastering work can be seen against daylight.
seem to be a consensus that Jimmy from creation is really good ...does anyone else have other contacts to recommend?
I'm very impress with yr house. May I know how much u spend on the renovation? or if possible can u email me yr quotation as I'm interested in getting an ID to redesign my house but a bit worry on the cost.
sorry for my late reply as I seldom come to this thread. if any enquiry, maybe can email me so that i will reply faster.
do u mean major plastering for wall? I not sure, u better check with the painter, Jimmy. as for us, although our is a re-sale flat, Jimmy did help us to do some minor plastering on the wall in living room for FOC.
$860 include max. 4 col. paint & services of the painting.
Thanks for yur compliment. we spend abt 28k for reno which include built in furniture. if u need to know more in detail, u can email me.
just to warn everyone here, beware of Jimmy from Colour creation, their workmanship is suck BIG time, maybe its only happen to me or i am more particular about the finishing.
Don't let this Co paint your house, you'll be regret about it(very soon).
For painting and plastering the air-con piping and wiring which he promised guarantee workmanship (somemore he said if no good, don't pay) for >$1K, the works turn out to be sub $700 paint works which one of my fren house engage.
Everything you ask, they said ok and steady one before the deal, but after evrything will be "It's like that one" and tonnes of reasons.
The new color does not really cover over the wall, the ceiling not fully paint with lots of area that will shine on you at different angle and the plastering work just suck, I may doing better than that, too bad i do not have time.
so please don't call this Joker if you want to save your trouble and have a happy reno process, trust me he will ruin your happy moods of your new house.
Gan, no offend here.
I like your house renovation very much, but my piant just turn out to be suck.
hi you can call anyone but not jimmy from colour creation.
their workmanship really suck BIG time, i kanna one time and will remember forever.
they can promise anything you ask when they here for the deal, but after the lousy paint, they will give you tonne of reason why it turn out that way.
just beware of the recommendation you get from forum...
you cant tell from the picture...but you can easily by your naked eyes.
anyway, its consider bad to my expectation and for the $$ they charge.
the wiring pipe that he charge for plastering works, not done.
paint the color before the base fully dry, or maybe the speed to fast, the paint not fully covered. so you can see the white spot here and there.
the residue of paint not being clean up, i my
self have to clean it up and its a lot >(. DAMN.
paid aso much in the end have to work myself.
just engage other if you have better recommendation.
i want to paint my Hall - any recommedation for colors to use?
i m looking for light colors and cozy feeling for Hall. my concept is walnut or wenge color furnitures so i m looking towards - morning dew colors. anyone got a photo to show for their Hall paint color? much thanks@
ermz... no photo to show but your concept is very similar to mine.
we used light brown for 3 walls and apple white for the other wall. for the ceiling, to differentiate between the dining and living room, we used white for the living room giving it a brighter look while sticking to apple white for the ceiling of the dining room giving it a darker look.
dat's very interesting... i nvr thot of using colors to differentiate the ceilings... how i differentiate my dining and living rooms is the difference in my false ceilings... one side is L-Box, the other side is a dropped down false ceiling.
i use dulux all, it is the best of them, as they have all the characrteristic of all ICI paints, I do construction I know, however it is also the most ex one in the market, I use it on my new house also, clean easily
