Flat Renovation

If you intend to carry out renovation work to your flat, you should check that the renovation contractor you engaged is registered with the HDB. To check if your contractor is registered with the HDB or if he is a Building and Construction Authority (BCA) approved window contractor listed with HDB, you can refer to these lists:
Guidelines for Renovation Works

Renovation work that does not affect the structural stability of the flat is permitted. For example:
  • Laying of ceramic/terrazzo/marble/parquet/other tiles as floor finishes
  • Laying of additional wall tiles up to ceiling height
  • Construction of kitchen cabinet base with cement mortar
  • Installation of grilles in windows or at balcony openings
  • Installation of cornices

A complete list of permitted/not permitted work can be found in the HDB Renovation Guidelines.
