Hi there,


I have a very reliable contractor with reasonable price as he is a local (called CK), his quotation will be less than a design firm a lot, also never mark up the price because you are the expatriate. He can speak fluent English and quotation is free of charge.


I posted a similar topic before, unfortunately was deleted by the forum. Apparently, I can’t post his full name & phone no. here, but if you need more details, let me know, I will PM you! (Or try to search it from the above old thread)


Hope this can help!

Hi,

CK has been working as our regular contractor for our shops and offices renovations and renewals for years. He's offering so far reasonable prices to us, delivering on time with quality.

My boss is an Aussie who owns couple brands of cafe and bar. His apartment in island south was just fully renovated by CK and he commented CK was attentive and responsible.

Getting a responsible renovation contractor in hk is pretty difficult I know, especially for expats. CK is no doubt a good helper!

Hi everyone,

I followed old posts here and found CK for our florist shop renovation in Sai Ying Pun. Our place was very old with a dingy shabby basement, so we gotta have a complete renovation.

Within 2 months (even faster than our agreed contract period), CK has turned our old place into a brand new shop, with not only a clean and ventilated basement and also a comfortable office space at 2/F.

He's really amazing as he achieved, without errors, our design thoughts on shop front and inside, perfect lighting and very practical plumbing and drainage system. He has a strong technical team to build a complicated but decent freezer (made of double insulated glass walls) for us, which is no doubt the highlight of our shop.

We'll definitely call him again for any future works, and would like to share with anyone who gonna do renovation.

I would like to second this post thread: I am so pleased to have Creative Health Renovation Contractor working on my flat. My flat was renovated ten years ago so I was looking for a reliable partner to do it up. The challenge was that I am not living in Hong Kong and Cantonese is not my first language. Mr. CK or Karl is such a life saver. He is a good communicator in written and oral English.

For the whole week of the project, while I was still away, he managed the project very well and provided me updates every day via WhatsApp. It is just so refreshing to work with a contractor who is reliable and a good communicator. When I got to HK eventually to check the flat, I am very satisfied with the job done.

We just used Ck and creative health renovation to completely redo our old walkup apartment. He and his team were great in providing quality work at a good cost. We did some work ourselves and ck was very helpful in advising us in ways to reduce costs. Very happy with the end results and agree with all the previous reviews. Ck speaks perfect English which was crucial to avoid confusion and we highly recommend anyone looking for a good, honest contractor to contact Ck.

We’ve searched and tried many contractors for our previous home renovations, and finally got a right one who can be bookmarked in our phone list!
We appointed CK to remodel our apartment in Hill Road , it’s finished in early September and the result is so refreshing! With budget concern, we could only renew our kitchen and bathroom, repaint built-in cabinet and wall and ceiling, grind and polish timber flooring, and make a set of wardrobe. Though CK was not the cheapest quote, he made perfect workmanship on all these works and completed the project earlier than our expectations.
We enjoy our brand new place so much now and would recommend CK to anyone looking for a good contractor.

We got the contact of CK from here and used him and his team to renovate our existing flat.
We didn't have a designer for our project, just gave CK some hand sketches and reference pictures for our ideas, together with couple of model numbers of appliances. Surprisingly he worked them out very well.
From design briefing, taking care of management office and insurance, or material purchases and deliveries, we didn't need to bother at all, CK took very good care on them.
We went to Mong Kok with him once for materials selection and that's it. He got the best prices from his regular vendors and arranged deliveries to site on his own.
In 4 months, our 1200sq. ft. apartment was totally refreshed. I’m really happy with his work, he did live up to his reviews!!

Thanks Asiaexpat! I came back from Canada 6 months ago and looked for some good contractors to renew my old office. This forum is so valuable for those not familiar with HK renovation market, just like me!
I found CK's contact and we did some video chats. After site inspection and measurements, he gave me many inspiring design ideas and some very practical suggestions.
My office is about 1,700 sq ft located in western district. CK and his team renovated and furnished it within 2 calendar months, even faster than my expectation!

I got a wonderful one stop service by Creative Health Renovation!

I live in Canada and have a rental apartment in HK which needed renewal after my 10 years tenant left :( CK sent his foreman to check up all defects and impaired fittings, and I was on a video call with them throughout the inspection. It's so satisfying that I could see every corner of my place without getting back to HK under pandemic. CK even recorded a short video to my renewed apartment, so I could forward to rental agencies.

My renovation project was so enjoyable and smooth, it was a really good value for money. Here's his fb page, maybe a good reference to anyone who's looking for a good contractor. (Tips: I gave it a like and CK offered me some special discounts ^.^)

Karl and Creative Health Solutions has been a nightmare to work with. We saw several good reviews for their services so decided to give them a try, but they have been a disappointment every step of the way. We had a simple job to tear down old shelving in a bathroom and install new shelving. Not only does Karl not communicate anything with his suppliers (all of them came up and had no idea what they were supposed to do), but he was disrespectful when speaking to my wife and has left the job incomplete and our home bathroom a complete mess.

During the teardown, he damaged a lot of the surrounding tiles and did not provide any feasible solution to fix it. Every appointment he's made with us for his suppliers to come up was delayed or completely missed which makes me wonder if he even communicates with his team. Worst of all, our bathroom has been left a mess for more than a month while we wait for him to deliver the shelving units. The materials for the units was finally delivered, but he neglected to instruct his team to fill all the holes and gaps before installing the units. We communicated clear instructions every step of the way, but he has the audacity to shout back at my wife and proceeded to just leave all the materials in our home and tell us he won't complete the job.

Karl has been rude and dismissive this entire time. Just want to share my experience and make sure everyone is aware of this company's irresponsible actions.

Ecanza, I feel sympathy for your experience with Karl, maybe there were come confusions between you and him, or particular reasons led you guys could not work it out.

He just finished up my apartment renovation in 2 months nicely and 2 weeks ahead our scheduled date. My project was not a significant one though, just kitchen and bathrooms remodeling, CK has performed professionally in the sense of programming and workmanship. He was patient to listen to my requests and humble to tell me every detail of the works. We had no problem in communication and I did not get any hassle throughout the project. I am glad to share my project photos here but I cannot figure out how to make it in this forum.

Well with curiocity through all these good recommendation i also contacted Karl but found out his service is too much expensive like double figure comparing to other quatations i have found around with similar decoration. Or maybe you guys can afford such amount which i can not. Still i believe there are more such service provider much in cheaper and the same service quality to your expected budget & quality. Hope i will pick one of those soon for my new flat.
ECANZA sorry to hear you had to experinece such, take it easy.

Thanks for the responses. Karls fees are definitely on the higher end given his standard of service and materials. I think he takes advantage of the fact that he speaks English and hopes that potential clients don't cost compare with other contractors.

Just so people are aware, I also saw a lot of good reviews about Karl on the Geoexpat forum, but it's a scam. I tried to post my honest negative experience, but they took it down right away. They only approve positive experiences, hence why it seems like there are so many positive reviews and no negative reviews. I'm glad that Asiaxpat doesn't do this and allows true feedback from customers and clients.
