Construction and Renovation Issues (Builder's Thread)

  • Napansin ko rin na talagang magkakadikit yung tiles. Mas okay ba na lagyan ng spaces between tiles?

    Baka pwede siguro kahit sa perimeter lang ng floor maglagay ng maliit na space for movement tolerance. Baka malapit kayo sa fault line?. seasonal eh, hehehe...Btw, curios din ako sa solution dito. sana may mag input ng technique.

    Papalitan ko na lang ng normal tiles yung mga nabasag na granite haha. mixed tiles.

    May part dito na hindi granite (normal tiles with spaces) wala namang problema.
  • Mas magastos ba pag bumili ng appliance na 110V tapos gamit transformer vs the usual na 220V?
  • depende sa wattage ng appliance, though its a must have sa akin dito to have transformer, 1k sa shopee high wattage po

    Mahal ba magpa-rewire ng buong bahay?


    relatively sir mahal
    my take, because of the following:

    1. pandemic
    2. variables

    a. i-assess ng gagawa, kung maluwag ba ang inyong mga loob ng kisame
    b. cheaper kung papayag kayong naka litaw ang mga lines
    c. regulatory implications, uso ba dito sa atin ng need ng rewiring clearance sa engineering office
    d. cost of materials; particularly brand, phelps one of most expensive, philphlex one of the cheapest. pag kausap mo ay nagbebenta ng phelps, i-cite nya yung safety, one time installation na mahirap nang palitan ulit, etc.

    in my case dun na ako sa cheaper brand anlaki kasi ng difference. dun ako ng focus/invest sa circuit breaker boards na mas maraming lines tapos mabababa ang AMPs para iwas over loading with respect to wire gauges

    in my own personal experience, i'd still do the same kapag nagpatayo ulit ako ng bahay po namin:

    least cost approach, relatively risky i should say, fortunately wala pong aberiya. kapag may thunderstorm nakakatuwa kasi some circuit breaker dahil mababa siguro ang amp ay nag tritrip sila. :)

    1. Hire a helper with experience in crimping, usually ito yung mga helper nung electrical contractors

    2. gamitin ko yung natutunan nung 4th year highschool at 1 subject during my college 'elementary electrical engineering' at mag review via youtube about load management sa 2 pole CBs

    3. if you have the time, you should be at the site everyday. and manage his questions clarifications

    4. tools needed

    a. digital tester [tapos na yung wiring namin na may live wire alarm function pala ito] bumili pa ako nung cheap live wire tester ha ha]

    b. electrical tapes and rubber tapes

    c. prefer ko ang conduit kapag sa lupa at flex hose kapag sa kisame

    d. basic tools; wire stripper, pliers, cutters, etc.


    estimate ball park figure for a 150sqm home.
    wires thhn: 15-20boxes guague (10s, 12s, 14s)
    MCBs, RCBOs: see picture, buti nalang available at hindi na ganon ka mahal
    invest in anti voltage and time delay modules, as well
    labor: kung batikan na ang tao, 1 nalang, pero pwede ring may helper sya.


    let's say average 3k isang box ng THHN wire * 20 = 60k
    conduit and flex hose = 3-5k
    tools = 3k
    consumables = 3k
    fuses and control panel = 6-10k
    labor 500 pesos per day *conservative let's say 30 days syang gagawa = 15k\
    roughly 100k

    wala pa dito yung mga outlets kasi sabi nyo re-wiring ang scope

    pagkatapos tap testing nalang bago migration/energize the new line.








    bare panel board, pagpasensya nyo na itsura po he he


  • @euen_ilagan

    Thanks sa info sir! Aralin ko mga yan para may idea ako sa mangyayari kapag nagpaquote ko. Thanks uli!

    Nagkaissue kasi before sa bahay namin. Nagtanong ako sa Meralco pips and chineck nila yung linya sa labas kasi yun lang daw ang jurisdiction nila. Pero sinilip na rin nila wiring. Manipis daw wires. Hindi raw kakayanin additional aircon and malalakas na appliances.
