I need to put up window grilles at my place. Does anyone of you have good contacts? TIA
what kind of grilles u looking at? budget?
I dont mind wrought iron or aluminium. Not sure of the pricing... looking for a reliable contractor to do it.
hi me too interested.
look under home & deco. plenty of contact
I couldn't find leh
I need the contacts for my mum's house too
anyone can share
good ones pls
hi fellow mommies, i was wondering if u all wanna join forces together to wrestle greater bargaining power from the same contractor. We can each source for 2 to 3 quotes and compare notes then ask for bulk discount since there are quite a few of us who need to install window grilles bcoz of our bb. Can we do this before the GST increase to add more savings pls?
fyi, i already called up one and asked him whether he can give even better price if there are 5 of us (and each of us can choose own design n type etc). He says most certainly.
so how, mommies?
I am liasing with one. He is quite prompt. Sent a guy down to measure my windows. Quoted $1k for my 5rm flat. 22 panels of windows. Aluminium casing. Lemme know if you need the contact
hi michele, hw's the std of ur contractor?? if its good i would like to join too.
ribenagr8rs, i got a quote at imm oso at ard 1k for 5rm for 20 panels. but heard from one of my fren that she done hers at $700plus only. too bad i wasnt able to get her contact.
ribenagr8s, do u think u can negotiate w your present contractor whether he can lower px to $700plus if there are 3 to 5 of us?
May: my present contact didn't make best offer yet n it's a cold contact i got from some mailer i got in my letterbox.
ok. I will contac him tonight. Confirm the three of us first? Mammy, may and me?
I am doing aluminium... cheaper. you gals too?
just contacted him.... told him about doing three places at one time. he cant offer the price any lower. Sorry. I will have the grilles put up nex week. My boy is getting more active by the day.
My mum's house has alot of windows, the last quote we get was 6K
so wannna get 3 quotes of cos & get one reliable one
My colleague has jus done her & recommend her contractor to me
U gals want to call and get the quotes as well
hey teenie, perhaps the "want to sell" column of tgis forum is more active. shall we open up a thread to invite more mommies to join so we can get lower quote?
i have no issue but the quote given by my colleague is v attractive
u can ask him to go on site & quote you
if ok, few of us do together to ask for discount
I'm interested in getting a contractor to do up my grilles. Hope that can get a good quote and most importantly a reliable contractor with good workmanship.
U want the contact we have engaged for my mum's hse? He has quoted us a v attractive price, my colleague has recommended him to me, she has compared 3 quotes,PM me if you keen
he will quote u after go to your house to take measurement
hey gals... i posted a thread just now on the Sell column of this forum .. perhaps more mommies keen to join us and we can all get a better deal by banding together!
i also need grilles, but only on the balcony cos rest of house already have. u think contractor want to do? if ok, i don't mind to join all of u.
I need grilles for 3 bedrooms and living room. Must we state the type of house we stay in? Like will there be any price difference for different type of housing? Or is it according to length?
my mum has confirmed using that contractor, he will come personally to your house to take measurements, & quote u a price, then He came again for us to choose materials etc
If you want, u can PM me his contact, grills only I am sure they do too
my mum only ask him to change the door gate too
I'm interested but still not too sure when we want to put up the grills. Can you PM me your contact and also give some feedback on whether you think he's good... honest.. how's workmanship, etc..?
I'm interested in the contact too as my bb is also getting active by the day..can also keep me in the loop when you are getting a more attractive quotes?

kindly let me know
Can I have his contact? Will they come down and do a quote for free? We are not obliged after they given a quote? Or do they charge you transportation fee? Can you PM me the contact also? Can I quote your name for any discount? I am thinking of doing the grilles up at my mom's place. It is a condo, so the colour and design got to adhere to the guidelines of the management. Thanks in advance.
I did not receive your PMs. Pls PM me the contact. Thanks.
Hi Teenie, pls PM me too. Thanks Do they do front-door grilles?
Yes he will come down to quote the price, he didn't charge us when he came down to quote for my mum's house & he even come second time to show my sis the materials & design so in the end my sis confirmed using him on the second appt
you can jus tell him tiong bahru that one recommend you cos I also don't know him well its recommended by my colleague, bt since its recommended I am sure he will give you good price.
He's doing front door gate too, my mum is also changing her front door gate as well as tear down old windows & install new ones plus grills as well
