I do my own buy all the material n just pay upah to the worker only. If contractor do mostly eat and suck more on your money. I buy all those thing n design and just let the worker do. A lot of contractor quota me mostly RM30K above so finally do research there and here. Make sure hire the quality worker and i find them in the construction work. They are not indon but sabahan people. Renovation is not too expensive but in Miri those contractor eat more on your money.

You have their contact number? I may know someone who needs to build a whole house in the future.

the guy who do the actual brick laying will charge around rm1.40 per sq ft…same goes for plastering but the boss will charge higher and after so many boss thats the amt u will pay…the sabahan will charge cheaper but u need to monitor the workmanship at all time…but i prefer the local iban guy…

can I have their contact numbers.

Bro…you mean the Bajau group…Mr Ajis ka?If yes how was the workmanship? I plan to engage them to install tile at car porch last week but unfortunately tiles not enough stock…

BTW some rate that I get from contractor if we buy our own material:

For install brick fence: RM26 per feet [Not square feet]
Install tile: RM1.50 - RM1.80sqf but some charge even higher depend on the floor/wall condition

do u mind to share the contractor contact? we are looking for contractor too.

agreed!!buy ur own materials and hired the workers…try to look for those workers that do the cementing at the graveyard…they also do a good job…

Nowadays quite hard to look for local construction workers. One thing I worry is,those indon or Bajau construction worker (without local tauke) always peep around our house (you know what i mean la…if they don have income for few weeks); if they got local tauke,at least they will always got things to do ( no time to think of other ‘business’) and can complain if quality is not up to our requirement. Just my personal point of view. :wink:

no need to worry coz most them have “kong” or leader among themself.
