HDB Approved Contractor
Looking for a renovation contractor to work with as you upgrade your home can be overwhelming for homeowners. You might have many questions, or not know where to start.
First and foremost, know that if you are renovating a HDB home, you must engage a contractor registered under the HDB Registered Renovation Contractors’ Scheme (RRCS). These contractors have undergone stringent licensing processes and are aware of HDB requirements when renovating your homes, so as to be able to carry out renovation works safely, without compromising or doing irreparable and undesirable damage to the structure of your flat.
To help you better understanding why it may be to your benefit to engage a HDB approved contractor, have a look at the requirements for a license:
- Contractor must have completed and passed HDB training
- Contractor must have at least 3 years of experience in renovation works
- The company must be ACRA-registered for a minimum period of a year
- The contractor must have ownership of the company for a minimum period of a year
Unlicensed contractors may convince you to engage them at a lower cost— but beware, for engaging an unlicensed contractor or one that has borrowed a license is illegal. Doing do could land you with a fine of up to $5000, amongst other possible penalties.
While having a license does not guarantee quality of work, you can avoid regrets over your decision to renovate by engaging only contractors with a portfolio and a long list of clients to show. Additionally, there are multiple online forums and pages where you may check up on reviews of contractors.
