reno + carpentry work
"How much will it cost to renovate my house?" This is a common question, especially for new homeowners or those undergoing first-time renovations. It definitely makes sense to know how much the various works can cost, so you can plan according to your budget.
1) Hacking Of Walls
This may just be the first thing you consider. It could be to join two bedrooms to create a larger space with an adjoining walk-in wardrobe, or to replace solid walls with lighter, sleeker partitions, or simply creating that open-plan layout. Hacking of a single wall in a HDB flat or apartment costs between $400 and $900, depending on the length, thickness and the area to be removed.
2) New Flooring
You might not like the floor finishes that come with your place, or they just won’t suit the design of your dream home. There are many new designs for tiles out there, some even replicating the look of wood or stone. New tiles cost between $6,500 to $9,000 depending on the size of the unit (for example, three-room or five-room), including the labour for laying of tiles and the necessary foundation below.
3) Carpentry / Fitting-out Works
No home is complete without the essentials such as the kitchen carpentry, or even built-in wardrobes and storage. Kitchen carpentry (excluding appliances) can cost above $8,000 for a medium-sized space. That is, if you were to have an unconventional or more personalised design, with the use of more expensive materials for your countertop, such as granite instead of solid surface. Your kitchen layout is also a factor. Wardrobe fitting-out costs from $320 per foot run. This depends on the design and mechanisms – for example sliding or soft-closing tracks – to be used, as well as the internal finishing.
4) By area
If you haven’t yet determined to what extent you are renovating, a good estimate is to set aside at least $100 per sqf, area wise. The cost varies according to factors like your design, requirements and materials used. However, don’t forget the other components such as loose furniture, soft furnishings, lighting fixtures, window treatments, electrical appliances and sanitary ware and fittings.
WHITE PVC LAMINATED PLYWOOD / BLOCK BOARD
The white PVC laminated plywood/block board is a decorative board in which a thin layer of PVC sheet is laminated on either sides of the plywood/block board. The white PVC laminated plywood/block board is often used in cabinets, table tops and shelves etc, since the layer of PVC makes it easier to clean the surface.
Our white PVC laminated plywood / block board comes in either one sided or both sided lamination, available in standard dimension (4’ x 8’, 1220mm x 2440mm) or cut to size.
PVC LAMINATED PLYWOOD / BLOCK BOARD (DECORATIVE)
The decorative PVC laminated plywood/block board is a decorative board in which a thin layer of white PVC sheet is laminated on either sides of the plywood/block board. It is often used in cabinets, table tops and shelves etc, since the layer of PVC makes it easier to clean the surface.
Our decorative PVC laminated plywood/block board comes in either one sided or both sided lamination, available in standard dimension (4’ x 8’, 1220mm x 2440mm) or cut to size.
WHITE POLYESTER COATED (POLYKEM) PLYWOOD / BLOCK BOARD
The white polyester coated plywood/block board is a decorative board in which a coat of white polyester paint is applied on either sides of the plywood/block board. The white polyester plywood/block board is often used in cabinets, table tops and shelves etc, since the layer of polyester pain makes routine cleaning a much easier process.

VENEER LAMINATED PLYWOOD (NATURAL AND RECONSTITUTED)
Our natural veneer plywood is made from various species of hardwood and softwood which includes but not limited to Beech, Oak, Walnut, Maple, Nyatoh, Teak, Ash, Teak, Cherry, Pine, Knotty Pine, Zebrano, Wenge, Ebony etc. Our reconstituted veneer plywood is also made from various species of hardwood and softwood, which is processed through various gluing and dying techniques to achieve specific patterns or effect. The veneer laminated plywood comes in the thickness of 3.6mm in standard dimension (4’ x 8’, 1220mm x 2440mm) or cut to size.
MEDIUM DENSITY FIBREBOARD (MDF NZ AND MDF MSIA)
The MDF is made by using the residuals of both hard and light wood, and breaking them down into wood fibres. It is often used in similar ways to plywood (MDF is denser), and is structurally stronger than the Chipboard (particle board). The MDF has also attracted many computer numeric control (CNC) wood routing enthusiasts to create wave forms on the MDF, which are now collectively known as Wave Boards. These Wave Boards are used to make feature walls, as well as panels of kitchen table and cabinets.
The MDF Msia is made using fibres harvested from rubber wood, whereas MDF NZ uses fibres harvested from pine wood. Therefore, the MDF NZ has a smoother and cleaner surface and is of higher quality and durability.
Our MDF comes in various thicknesses in standard dimension (4’ x 8’, 1220mm x 2440mm) or cut to size.
DECORATIVE MELAMINE FACED CHIPBOARD (MFC)
Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC) is made by laminating impregnated melamine paper onto MIECO Plain Board. The board is widely used for interior decoration applications for the home, kitchen as well as office furniture. The standard panel size comes in 1830mm x 2440mm (6' x 8') with standard thickness of 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 16mm, 18mm, 25mm and 30mm. The moisture resistant MUF V313 grade is available in 16mm and 18mm.
