Carpentry and full renovation works

Q1. Do you do painting, electrical, partition walls, tiling.... that is "other" renovation work other than carpentry?

Of course! In fact, we are a HDB Licensed Renovation Contractor as well. Our HDB Licensed Renovation Contractor Registration Number is HB-05-4670F. So if you need us to help you with any other renovation works, we can help.

 

Q2. We like what we have seen so far and are keen to engage JS Carpentry. How do we begin?

Start by emailing us at hello@jscarpentry.com.sg with your details or giving us a call at +65 9488 5077 for an obligation free consultation. We prefer to give you a quotation through email so that you will be absolutely confortable with our estimates before meeting up.

 

Q3. Do you have a showroom we can visit?

If you are talking about a spanking showroom mockup, the answer is no. Soon! Meanwhile, we have photos of our work which you may want to view on our Gallery page.

We are carpenters, and we have the JS Carpentry workshop which you are most welcomed to visit.

We are tucked in two workshops an the industrial estate No 74 Sungei Kadut Street 1 S729374. We are located in a new 10,000 sqft facility that houses a 7500 sqft workshop. This is where all our carpentry works begin and you will be able to see our workers in blue JS Furniture uniform sawing plywood, pressing laminates, assembling parts together and making dream homes happen.

Please call our hotline at +65 9488 5077 to make sure someone will be there to attend to you when you want to drop by.

We are open Mondays to Saturdays 8.30am - 5.30pm. We are closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.

 

Q4. Must we hold our discussions at your JS Carpentry workshop? It is very far from where I am.

We can have our discussion in our JS Furniture workshop for now as the office and showroom is under renovation. But you do not have to come all the way to JS Carpentry Workshop for discussions if it is inconvenient for you.

So, more often than not, we meet our clients wherever and whenever that is most convenient for them. This means we could have our discussions with you at your new home, your existing place of stay, a nearby coffeeshop or a convenient McDonald's. You do not have to come to our JS Carpentry workshop to look at the material samples, we can bring the material samples to you.

 

Q5. Why is JS Carpentry cheaper than IDs or contractors for a similar piece of carpentry?

IDs and contractors offer a valuable service of conceptualizing the whole space, designing the various elements of the renovation, helping to choose materials, coming up with beautiful glossy computer-rendered 3D perspective drawings, giving renovation advice and managing the whole renovation process while engaging a team of subcontractors to execute the work.

Hence, to earn their share, their quotation has an overall markup of between 25-30% for all the works involved, including carpentry. Sometimes, this markup is applied even when the carpentry works are done in-house within the ID or contractor company.

When you deal with JS Carpentry, you remove a layer and are working with the carpenters directly. You get direct workshop carpentry prices. This is why for the same piece of carpentry we are usually cheaper than IDs and contractors.

So, when you are able to conceptualize, design or articulate what you need or want, JS Furniture is the obvious choice. On the carpentry side alone, we can help you save thousands for dollars easily. Now, we can even help you with the rest of the renovation.

 

 

 

 

 

Q6. We are not engaging an ID, can you design the carpentry for us?

We do not have designers on our payroll, and we are not able to provide 3D perspective drawings. If you do not have reference drawings for us, we will provide you ideas through old school pen sketches on paper.

There are a number of alternative ways to get designs for your new home. Consider the following:

  • Seek inspiration from local or international interior design magazines
  • Search the Internet for nice home interiors
  • Sketch your ideas on paper
  • Use Sketchup and draw in 3D, it is free!
  • Provide us AutoCad detail drawings
  • Take photos of existing carpentry at their friend's places or showflats etc
  • Tell us what you like in our portfolio

So while we do not offer a 'design' service like an ID, we can work together and produce the carpentry that you have in mind.

 

Q7. What are some good website for me to grab ideas from?

You may find the following websites useful for getting some interior design ideas and carpentry inspirations for your own home.

 

Q8. I am afraid my project is too big/small. What kind of jobs does JS Carpentry accept?

We have accept jobs as small as installing only one kitchen and 2 wardrobes set to fitting out 500 kitchen, wardrobe and bathroom sets for a brand new condominum development.

We apologize that we do not undertake repair jobs, carpentry alteration jobs and student prototyping projects.

 

Q8. I am an Architect/ Interior Designer/ Contractor in need of carpentry support and I am interested to know if JS Carpentry can support me. Who should I speak to?

Unfortunately, we prefer to deal directly with homeowners and property owners. The exception is if you are a project developer, and require something like 100 wardrobes or 50 kitchens. In this case, please send us an email which your project details.

 

Q9. I still have questions?

If you still have any questions about our carpentry and renovation services, by all means contact us or call our hotline so we can provide you with answers.
