Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What type of wood do you use?
Builders Carpentry uses quality plywood and blockboard.
Plywood comprises thin layers of wood veneer glued together with special adhesive. We typically use 3-ply, 5-ply or multi-ply applications, depending on design factors and the customer’s budget.
Blockboard consists of a plywood core between 2 thin veneers, hot-pressed to form a solid block.
Blockboard is a good choice if want a smooth finish and the strength of the finished product is not a major consideration. If robustness is more important, plywood is a better option.
Why don’t you use chipboard like IKEA?
Chipboard – also known as particleboard or low-density fibreboard (LDF) – is made by binding wood chippings, shavings, and sawdust.
While chipboard may be OK in some climates, it’s unsuitable for the humidity of Singapore, where it can become swollen and disintegrate.
What type of wood offers the best water resistance for bathrooms/toilets?
Our customers can opt for marine plywood, which can withstand prolonged exposure to both wet and humid conditions while resisting fungal attack.
However, marine plywood costs at least 50% more than regular plywood.
Can you protect my furniture from bug infestation?
Our timber is treated with pesticide at source to combat termites and other wood-boring bugs.
Where is your furniture made?
We make your customised furniture right here in Singapore, in our own carpentry factory at Mandai Estate.

How does your warranty work?
