Frequently Asked Questions
Qn: What is Reno Scout’s story and mission?
Ans: Our founder is a third generation Carpenter (with a University Degree no less!), who had chosen to continue carrying on our family legacy despite all odds. He had the honours of learning from 2 Grand Masters before perfecting his woodworking skills under his Grandfather and Uncle’s tutorage. Together the combined experience of the 3 generations of our Master Carpenters is more than 60 years, we pride ourselves on being able to craft complicated pieces which employs rare and long lost woodworking skills that most modern carpenters lack.
Our Mission is to bring quality Carpentry works to more homeowners in Singapore by reaching out and offering our direct factory prices.
Qn: Why is Reno Scout Carpentry prices cheaper than IDs or Contractors?
Ans: Reno Scout Pte Ltd comprises a multi-talented team of individuals – we’re carpenters, and we’re designers too. This means that we’re able to provide our customers with essentially the two most valuable services required in renovation: 1) Space planning, interior design and 2D/3D drawing, as well as 2) Carpentry.
This sets us apart from regular Interior Design firms, in which Interior Designers who specialise in drawing have to engage third-party carpenters in order to execute and fabricate their designs. Of course, they then have to charge their customers a marked-up price for their carpentry in order to turn a profit. We don’t do that!
We’re the brains and the brawn behind the operation. That’s how we’re able to charge direct factory prices for our carpentry – thus keeping your renovation cost as affordable as possible.
