Frequently Asked Questions
Qn: What is RenoScout’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 business 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 RenoScout Carpentry prices cheaper than IDs or Contractors?
Ans: It is a well known fact that Interior Designers (IDs) and Contractors often mark-up their prices to earn a profit of 25% to 30% in order to provide home owners with the valuable service of conceptualizing the design style for 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.
When you deal with RenoScout, you remove these layers and are working with us, the Carpenters directly. You get direct factory carpentry prices. This is why for the same piece of carpentry we are definitely cheaper than IDs and contractors.
So, when you are able to conceptualize, design or articulate what you need or want, RenoScout is your obvious choice when it comes to carpentry works in Singapore.
