    MRT distance is nothing compared to the irritating road noise, especially from
    the heavy construction vehicles and speeding cars and bikes. Virtually you can
    hear non stop of these construction lorries and motorbikes start to accelerate after starting off from the main junction.
    Not good for the mind and heart, you basically, always can anticipate the next sound
    of speeding vehicles.

    Default Floor defect

    Hi it's my first time to post here because I don't know anywhere else to ask.

    Earlier this week I noticed severe floor defect in my living room. The whole thing came up (see attached picture).

    I looked for some contractors and they said it can collapse anytime.

    I wonder any neighbours are having the same problem? It can't be just me who's so unlucky right? Any way I can make a complaint or something? It's only been 4 years...!

    Thanks a lot in advance for any sharings/advices, thanks!

    Four years is after defects liability period - nobody will be able to receive or respond to the complaint. Need to re-lay the tiles - major construction. It won't collapse but the tiles may all pop up.

    Hi Whitejasmie, it doesn't look like it will collapse. Go to this HDB webpage, it does explain what happened. With this knowledge you can get a reliable contractor. http://www.hdb.gov.sg/cs/infoweb/res...floor-finishes
    Yee ha! Did I tickle your funny bone?

    Actually tiles popping is quite common with HDB flats. Usually cases increase when a change in weather, like the recent cooler weather. One of my friend's living room tiles popped at night early this year when night time temperatures dropped to 22c for a few days.

    Not only with HDB flats. It applies to all houses, all units. But collapse is bullshit. Tiles are like the wallpaper on walls. They serve no purpose except to make it nicer. The real foundation is the metal and cement below the tiles. This one also a bit common sense right? The tile is so thin. You expect it to hold up a unit?

    Anyway, unfortunately you have to re-tile. It is very common and like what Kelonguni has said, once the defect period ends (1 year), there is no recourse.
