Resale HDB Renovation
Not much hacking or renovation is expected for a new flat that comes bare, from HDB, unless you’re tearing down walls. Renovation as for a resale flat typically means removing current floor and wall tiles, kitchen cabinets etc.
It is therefore very reasonable that construction costs for resale flats will be more costly than those for new HDB-direct flats. Renovation costs for resale apartments are also typically 30-40 per cent higher than new apartments.
Resale renovations usually include hacking works as contrasted with BTO or new HDB renovations. Hacking refers to removing any existing built-in furniture, floorings, wall finishes such as wall and furnish tiles, as well as actual walls or other structures.
The more you mess with the home’s original state, the more effort it entails and the more it will cost you because both demolition and disposal are a lot of work. That’s why resale apartment renovations will cost a lot more than a new flat. In some cases, hacking really isn’t necessary. For example, if you want to upgrade the flooring, you can simply lay several new vinyl, laminate, and engineered wood floors over the existing tiles.
HDB renovation regulations
As we all know HDB has a lot of public housing rules and regulations. Below are some rules you should keep in mind when preparing your renovation.
Apply for hacking approval
Any load-bearing walls, columns, beams, and slabs may be removed, transferred, or changed. While not load-bearing, other walls cover critical wiring and pipes, and can not be manipulated. Be sure to send all plans to HDB for approval to play it safe before any hacking begins.
BTO bathroom floor & walls
The renovation work on the floors and walls of your new BTO bathroom has a 3 year restriction period. This is because they are covered with a membrane that is waterproof to keep water from flowing into the device below. You have to bear the cost of repairing the damage to your neighbour’s home if you want to ignore the limitation and there is slippage. You can however, overlay over the existing flooring.
Concealing of exposed pipes
You feel the temptation in your bathroom or kitchen to cover up the exposed pipes. Pipes can not be easily concealed, as much of an eyesore as they are. HDB must be able to enter the pipes to investigate in the event of clogs.
Front door needs to be fire-rated
If you want your front door to be replaced you need to make sure the new door is fire-rated. Many front doors of the HDB are built to contain smoke and fire inside the unit so that they do not spread to staircases or lobbies.
Restrictions on replacing windows
The safety railings or grilles designed by HDB are completely impossible to remove or tamper with. The windows may be removed, but full height and bay windows are not always permitted. You can not install windows which open outwards for windows facing the common corridor. And the door is there for balconies with a sliding door because windows are not allowed so don’t even think about opening it.
