HDB Tiling Renovation Works

Tiling is a staple for renovation works in-home units, especially HDB. Tiles should complement the design and vibe of your home design. It is the foundation and basis of your decorations and furniture. Tiles are often shouldering the burden of needing to showcase a high aesthetic quality in addition to providing comfortable and practical applications. After all, tiles inevitably determine how your home would turn out to look and feel.

For tiling renovation works, there are a few important points to note. As a homeowner, you should always check whether the contractors are BCA registered.

For HDB renovations, you can cross-reference your HDB tiling company against this list of contractors. For private property renovations, you can check against this list of contractors.

Your contractor should be well equipped with the knowledge of the proper guidelines required to carry out the appropriate renovation. For example, there are specific rules and regulations regarding window renovation in HDB flats. Hence, it is suggested that homeowners engage BCA-approved window contractor registered with HDB to ensure that the renovation complies with the HDB rules and regulations. The timeline and schedule of the renovation work will also affect your renovation permit, so it is best to not delay any form of renovation work lest the permit expires.

Common types of tiles offered by Tiling Companies:

  • Ceramic tiles
  • Subway tile
  • Terrazzo tiles
  • Marble tiles
  • Stone tiles
  • PVC tiles
  • Porcelain tiles
  • Wood tiles

Singapore HDB Tiling Works

Tiles are commonly used on flooring and wall design due to their versatility and ease of installation. The advantages of having tiles include ease of cleaning, low maintenance, scratch resistance, and most importantly, moist resistance. With the qualities stated, tiles are suited to be fitted in any part of your home.

There are, of course, disadvantages associated with tiling. Each tiling material will have its disadvantages. However, in general, tiles are heavier than other flooring options.

This would not make them the ideal flooring choices for any level other than the ground floor, especially for heavier materials such as terrazzo and ceramic slabs. HDB units will probably not have this issue, but for bungalow homeowners with a second and third level, you might want to consult a tiling professional to check the structural integrity of your home.

Flooring installation is also a time-consuming process. Delays are common during installation as surprises may pop up from time to time. Examples of this may include uneven, chipped tiles and dimension measurement errors. Tiling renovation is also expensive due to the labour-intensive nature of the job.

Tiling Cost in Singapore

Tiling is one of the most versatile flooring material which you can find on the market. Tiles come in different materials and designs; hence, depending on your creativity, you can use the vast array of choices to blueprint your floor.

Ceramic Tile

Marble Designed Ceramic Tiles

  • Cost: $0.5 to $35 per square feet (psf)
  • Commonly Available Sizes: 60cm x 60cm, 60cm x 120cm, 90cm x 90cm
  • Thickness: 3mm to 10mm

Ceramic tiles are made up of sand and clay and they can be used as flooring or even for your wall designs! There are two types of ceramic tiling, glazed and unglazed. Glazed tiles, usually have a coating that varies depending on the type of look you are going for.

This coat is useful in preventing the staining of the tiles and they are usually used for walls. Usually, the tiles under part are of a reddish or whitish colour. If you are looking at the unglazed version, fret not, is still durable and is usually used for outdoor areas. A thinset (type of adhesive) is used to secure the tiles to the floor or wall. Generally, tiles used for walls are relatively thinner as compared to those used for the floor.

 Pros of Ceramic Tiles

Cons of Ceramic Tiles

There are various styling options for ceramic tiles due to the plethora of colors, designs, and sizes they come in

Due to its hardness, this may cause discomfort when people step on them. Unfortunately, unlike vinyl flooring or laminate flooring, padding does not help ‘soften’ your footsteps

For the glazed versions, they are great in preventing staining and scratches from being obvious. Both versions are extremely clean as well and simple sweeping and mopping will suffice

This tile is prone to getting cold in night or in cold weather, hence this may not be preferable to some people

Due to their water-resistant properties, they are great for usage in areas more prone to getting wet such as kitchens and toilets!

In order to use these tiles, it is important to know if the area you are using these tiles are structurally sound as ceramic tiles are heavy and dense.

These tiles do not trap and absorb dust and allergens that may potentially cause discomfort to family members who are sensitive to allergens.

    • Glazed: $3 to $10 psf
    • Unglazed/ Homogenous: $2 to $4 psf
  • Commonly Available Sizes: 60cm x 60cm, 60cm x 120cm, 90cm x 90cm
  • Thickness: 3mm to 10mm

Porcelain tiles are made up of clay, sand, and feldspar (a type of mineral) and are subjected to higher temperatures of heat as compared to ceramic. This makes them a lot denser, and harder with decreased porosity. Similar to ceramic tiles, there are two types of porcelain tiles which are unglazed (homogenous) and glazed.

Homogenous tiles are widely used in residential areas (such as HDB) and commercial areas for both indoor and outdoor areas. Furthermore, homogenous tiles do not need to be sealed like other stones, such as marble, which may be another selling point for potential buyers. For glazed tiles, they are unable to be sealed due to the additional layer which decreases their porosity. Due to this, sealants are not able to adhere to the surface of the top layer and will fade off.

Pros of Porcelain Tiles

Cons of Porcelain Tiles

Due to their higher density, these tiles are heavier and hence, it is important to note the area you are planning to install is structurally sound

They are relatively economical, even to ceramic tiles. Despite their potential higher initial cost, the cost can be saved as they may not require sealants and varnishing

Although the maintenance of the tile itself is relatively easy, the grout (material used in between tiles) used would require care over time due to the possible accumulation of grime that will look unsightly if neglected

For glazed porcelain, they are usually scratch, heat, chemical, and UV resistant. This allows them to be viable for both indoor and outdoor usage

The installation of tiles is not easy and would be difficult to do so by yourself, hence it is advised to employ the help of professionals

  • Commonly Available Sizes: 30cm x 60cm, 60cm x 60cm, 90cm x 90cm
  • Thickness: 3mm to 10mm

Normally, cement tiles are made up of cement, sand, and pigment.  A hydraulic press is used to apply pressure during the manufacturing process of these tiles. They can either be made in a factory or handmade where different patterns and colours can be designed using metal cement tile mould.

There is also another form of cement tiles, which are called encaustic cement tiles, which are acquired from kiln-fired clay. These tiles are slightly more expensive to make due to the usage of heat. Usually, cement tiles can be used in a wide variety of indoor spaces as both a flooring or walling option. Furthermore, the designs that are imprinted onto these cement tiles are extremely unique and may even relate to certain cultures such as Peranakan and even Moroccan!

Pros of Cement Tiles

Cons of Cement Tiles

Pros of Granite Tiles

Cons of Granite Tiles

Slate Tile

Slate tiles texture

  • Cost: $2 to $15
  • Commonly Available Sizes: Varies
  • Thickness: 3mm to 10mm

Slate is a type of naturally occurring stone that can be quarried at mountains or hillsides or from the earth. During their formation, they have a sheet-like shape that overlaps each other. Slate tiles can either be gauged or ungauged.

For the ungauged versions, the stone is in its raw form, and the backing of it is uneven and sometimes rough. Hence, this makes it more difficult to install and would normally be utilised in a more outdoor setting. On the flip side, in the gauged version, the backside of the tile has been made smoother for easier installation in indoor areas.

The extra processing will likely make the tiles more costly! Just to note, these two terms refer to the backing of the tiles, and for the front surface of the tiles, there are different finishes, such as cleft and honed. The former means it has more of a natural and uneven look, while the latter refers to it having a smoother aesthetic.

Building on the previous point, due to the heaviness of the tiles, the floor must be able to withstand the weight of the slate tiles being used

Due to their high density, this makes the stone extremely resistant against water, hence this allows it to be used in both wetter indoor areas as well as outdoor areas.

This material is hard, hence standing on it for extended periods may cause discomfort

Since it is a stone, you will be glad to know that they do not emit any harmful toxic gases that are usually present in synthetic floor tile!!

Usually, due to the cleft versions of this stone, this may make it more painful to walk on

One major selling point for this tile is that they are easy to clean and regular sweeping and mopping will do just fine!

Tiling Repair

Floor tiles may require repair when it starts to warp or dislodge. This may be common over time, due to the heat and moisture in the air. Both problems are extremely relevant and common in a hot and humid country like Singapore.

Different subfloors can bend, warp, expand, or flex depending on the material they’re made from. Hence, it is important for homeowners to perform tile maintenance and repair work.

When a tile begins to dislodge, it may possibly emit a hollow sound on impact or may protrude from the ground. This is dangerous as it may cause injury. In order to prevent this, cover and replace those areas promptly. This is especially so if there are sharp and chipped corners. A thick piece of cardboard or stacked layers of newspaper can help prevent foot traffic from stepping on it directly.

Multiple tile dislodgement or damages may call for tile replacement instead of simple repair work. If you don’t have one on hand from when the tile was originally installed, your original tile retailer company might be keeping spare stock.

How to repair tiles

Hairline cracks, although unsightly, might be a smaller problem than perceived. Sealants or putty should be able to mend the crack. After which, sanding should return the tile to its original texture and look. Apply sealant to the cracks, and if needed, use a toothpick or cotton swab to push sealant down into any hard-to-reach and small crevices!

Applying glaze to tiles can also prevent further damage. Coloured glazes are also available for tiles and grout with different colours.

Some variants of marble tiles are more expensive to replace. Materials such as onyx and acrylic are also expensive materials that may burn a hole in homeowners’ pockets.

Types of Tiling Repair

Here is a list of common tiling projects that tiling companies in Singapore provide:

  • Ceramic Tiling Repair
  • Marble Tiling Repair
  • Vinyl Flooring reinstallation
  • Tile Hacking
  • Tile replacement
  • Tile recolouring
  • Tile maintenance
  • Floor finishing
  • Repair damaged tiles
  • Replace warped tiles
  • Roof tiling repair

Some tiling companies may also provide waterproofing works. This will be more applicable to bathroom tiles. Homeowners who are considering tiles as their flooring of choice may also want to engage tile grout cleaning services for their home.

Roof Tile Repair

Roof tile repairs are more complex and dangerous. There is an added layer of safety concern for roof tile repairs, as opposed to floor tile repairs. The complexity of roof tiles would also depend on the material of the roof.

There are three common types of roof material in Singapore, mainly:

  • Concrete Roof Tiles
  • Asphalt Shingles
  • Clay Roof Tiles

Curled, cracked or missing shingles are tell-tale signs that the room needs repair. Concrete roof tiles are more forgiving, requiring minimal maintenance. For concrete roof tiles, only the affected area of tiling need to be replaced, saving homeowners time and money. Clay roof tiles may be slightly tricky than the former two, as it usually takes a skilled roofing contractor to assess the identify the leaking area.

HDB Tiling Repair Contractors

As with any HDB renovation or tiling work, there are regulations to adhere to. Hence, you should choose a contractor who knows the proper guidelines. A good way to do this would be to hire a contractor listed in the Directory of Renovation Contractors (DRC). This will help ensure that your contractor will carry out works that are in compliance with the HDB renovation requirements.

Renovations that have been approved must be done so within three months of the given permit date. This applies to newly completed blocks like BTO flat. For existing HDB flats, the timeline is slightly tighter, being 1 month from the date of the permit.
