    BTO flat bathroom doors splitting, HDB does nothing

    in e end i managed to join the fb of my estate.. many of such incident reported, ranging from within warranty period and outside of warranty period. those reported during warranty period got their doors nailed back, polished the portion and touchup of paint.. i thought they were going to do 1for1 replacement the doors man! im just going to use glue and pop it back. use for awhile more and then decide if want to get the PD door..

    sometimes not about the money but more of buay song about how issues are handled? one paid so much to add the topup elements and yet got lousy quality stuff? if things are not solved then probably will diy ba

    nope.. not in contact with water. shower area has got glass shower screen with raised curbs. so technically its "dry bathroom" where the doors are? we dont flood the toilet floor when washing the toilet as well. so its rare chance for the door to get in contact with water. funny thing is the common toilet door starts to split from the top. i definitely dont hose wash my ceiling or toilet walls.. nor do i have a bathtub at home which can steam up the whole toilet.. mmmm.. i cannot think of other reason for the split other than lousy quality?

    well, HDB's officer said my feedback on the quality will be noted but nothing can be done by them to my doors. its like talking to automated machine on the loop that items are out of warranty, nothing can be done. ya.. will go source for more people in the neighbourhood with similar issue! not going to back down so easy.. the lady officer is going to call me back again. will definitely note down both the officers name this time and tell them what you suggested.. haha!

    1 door i llst. 2 doors = bad quality right? officer got the cheek to tell me, "door used for very long already. thats why cannot cover." my response to that: "1.5yrs is very long? so 10yrs later, my house will crumble right?"
  9. utterly disappointed with HDB (whats new?!) Long story short: collected BTO flat keys Feb 2016, punggol along waterway area recently spotted master bedroom toilet door starting to split at the edges from the bottom. first noticed in July 2017. called HDB and was informed past warranty period. nothing can be done. gave me contractor's contact for quote, contractor bo huh me. fine few days ago, spotted common toilet door starting to split at the edges from the top. emailed into HDB feedback. received call from the same officer who spoke to me the first time and regurgitated the same "out of warranty" story. when i refused to budge, another lady spoke to me and said it may be due to the owners not doing proper maintenance and due to usage issues. seriously? how to use until the edges split? bang the door daily as a hobby? if its only one door, fine, i suay. now its both doors. obviously its quality issues! we topup for optional components for inferior products! kaos. (no idea why after attaching the picture was rotated) any bros encountered anything similar and managed to get HDB do something about the issue? can share? im so sorry for starting in the wrong section.. how can i move it to non-car related! sorry!!

    thank u bros for your comments!! deffo noted that their collection/dropoff isnt at airport. my party is 7A3C and was thinking of a tarago and rav4 combi to cater for all luggages and child seats. kids will be too young to complaining about the sun and heat. the oldest is 6? we were thinking of going pinnnacles to see the rocks but not the sand dunes. thinking that its a waste of time travelling to see sand as we are not taking their 4wd rides. can share why u dont recommend pinnacles? hahha. now you got me worried! thanks bro. am considering whether to get simcard or changi wifi. now with ur advice, probably going to get both! hahah thanks bro. am considering whether to get simcard or changi wifi. now with ur advice, probably going to get both! hahah. yes, heard about the strict speed limit. already warned the drivers in the group. strictly no speeding!! no way to zao the fine. cos my bil had a friend who did. the letter came to find him in SG, all the way from AU! and he got to pay for the additional admin fees etc. thanks bro! No Birds is one of the big guys? icic 3 younger kids!! i guess it will be an experience of a lifetime to take shuttle and lug the luggages along? lol. i hope we dont missout any luggages along the way (or any kids!) we will arrive on Mon and depart on Sun. will check out their opening hours!

    thanks for sharing.. we are staying at Joondalup which is quite far away from major attractions! needs careful planning so that we wont have much wasted time there.. this tripcover is AU insurance company right? in the event that needs to claim (choi choi choi), will be quite troublesome right? though i saw we can submit claims through email. on the petrol station!

    my travel insurance only covers $1k of car rental excess.. need to discuss with the family to see if everyone is comfortable with that.. or if they prefer full coverage.. hahaha.. accidents can happen even when one is super careful ya? *crossing fingers*

    Thread Merge/Split/Move primer

    i feel that merging similar threads is fine. its just that sometimes its hard to find the right page to start reading, especially if that topics has got 100+ pages? perhaps a bookmark for the latest block of the topic will be helpful? taking sample from "Beware of scammers". original topic was posted in June 2015 and there is an update or related entry today on page 35. the marker can be on page 35, instead of clicking on various pages to find the latest update. or a marker placed after the thread was 'revived' by an update after a few weeks/months? not sure how to do it though. its just a thought.
