Factors Affecting BTO HDB Renovation Costs

factors-affecting-hdb-bto-renovation-package
Size and condition of BTO/resale flats determine the cost of home renovation package

1. Size and Type (BTO/Resale) of HDB

The renovation cost in Singapore for resale flats can cost higher than for BTO units due to the scope of work involved. They also need more fittings, hacking work, and rewiring because of outdated features.

2. Scope of Work

You’ll need to spend more money if more work needs to be done. Your home may need renovations in certain places but not others. It also depends on the work that the previous owner of your resale apartment did.

3. Condition of the House

BTOs are blank slates, which makes it easier for IDs to work their magic on them. Contrarily, in case of resale flats, the previous owners might have made renovations to the property that you don’t like. Taking that down will cost money.

4. Quality of Materials Used

Expect to pay extra for high-end materials like marble countertops or porcelain tiles, which have more elaborate finishes than basic materials. If you want a little bit of luxury, it will always cost a lot of money.

5. Choice of the Interior Design Firm

Finding the best company that can fulfil your goals and your budget requires comparing different firms’ costs, based on the services offered.

Tips for Anyone Planning HDB BTO Renovations

tips for-hdb-bto-renovation
Reno works involving hacking need HDB’s prior approval
  • Homeowners must request HDB approval in advance and submit their unit’s floor plan if their redesign involves any hacking or demolition
  • However much you may want to personalise and embellish bomb shelter designs to your taste, there are still a few rules you must abide by such as not plastering any internal faces, not removing or covering the affixed door notification, removing the door etc.
  • Do not tamper with the window grill designs
  • The newly built flats have a restriction for three years for not tampering the toilet tiles, floors and walls
