Construction and Renovation Issues (Builder's Thread)

  • Ganito kasi design nung samin

  • Hi Guys,

    Is this possible?

    I apply for a loan to high rise our home, then since maganda ang location, yung front is commercial and back is residential.

    Then yung pambayad ng loan will come from the lease of probably the 3rd to 5th floors of the commercial area.

    Is that doable? or Is there a company would do that like motor company, etc.

    129 sqm, tapos infront of Kalayaan avenue near BGC.
  • magkano kaya aabutin magpalagay ng vinyl na mukang wood planks? planning to install kapag na-turnover na yung bahay samin, around 30 sqm lang naman and direkta dikit na ba yun sa existing tiles? thanks


    Kung matyaga ka, gawin mo na lang weekend project. Nilalatag lang naman ang mga vinyl plank (parang puzzle lang sya heheh), then may locking mechanism sya para magdikit-dikit. Ang challenge lang ay yung mga corner at yung mga corner na may odd shape like door and stairs, best is to cut it using jigsaw with fine teeth lalo na kung makapal yung vinyl. You can use a regular utility knife (cutter) kung manipis lang yung vinyl planks (yung mga mura nasa 3mm lang yung thinkness). I don't know the local price in PH, but here in US a good quality vinyl planks with a 20mil specs in the top coating (these are the commercial grade) usually cost 3-4 bucks per square footage. Yung mga mura na vinyl planks comes at 6mil laminate top coating , in my experience madali sya magasgas.

    30 sqm = 323 sqft. then mag allowance ka ng 10% since hindi lahat ng vinyl plank ay usable. May mga kelangan ka i-cut na planks na hindi mo magagamit lalo na kung maraming odd corner sa paglalatagan mo.

    So 360 sqft multiply by PHP150 = PHP54K for vinyl planks.
  • anyone who tried PVC folding door? mas mahal pa pala compared to flush door
  • mas ok ata yung centralized heating. Yung tipong may malaking tank then yun ang mag provide ng hot water sa buong house - parang sa ibang countries na may hot and cold sa all water outlets - all you need to do is turn the appropriate knobs.
    ok lang yan kung hotel ka at palaging nagagamit yung hot water....at mas magastos yan sa electricity...not to mention the 2nd piping throughout the house....ganyan yung dati naming setup...napakalakas sa kuryente nyan kung ngayon mo gagawin...para kang merong nakasaksak na water heater 24hours a day whether someone uses it or not...tapos maghihintay ka pang dumating yung hot water dahil pagka centralize yan depende kung nasaan yung hot tank mo....in our case we put individual heaters in each bathroom....mas matipid at mas efficient...at mas madaling ayusin kung may sira...you just replace 1 unit with a new one...pero in my experience halos di nasisira yung heater...yung panasonic namin mga 25plus years na...yung markes 1997 pa buhay pa ngayon...sayang lang nagastos namin sa hot water piping throughout the house...pero during that time kasi (1991) yung centralized ang uso at wala pang masyadong individual heaters at mahal pa...
  • Lakas ng ulan yung understairs toilet namin nagleak.

    Dameng backjob. Sakit sa ulo nito pag wala ng warranty :)
  • Sa lakas ng ulan samin may leak din sa kisame, pero mukhang sa pader lang galing kasi naka ilang ulan na rin kami ngayon lang nag leak. Muntik na mabasa tv tapos yng switch ko yung natuluan na talaga. Hay.
  • Sa bahay naman namin yung kitchen ang may leak. Bale nasa likod ung kitchen at buhos yung bubong para provision for another room sa 2nd floor pag nagkabudget. Ang nakakainis ay hindi tiniktik ung side ng wall sa likod at gilid (wall ng banyo) so tumatagas dun ang tubig ulan if dun sa walls ang direksyonng angge. Hindi din nahaluan ng sahara ung pinangbuhos sa concrete slab para sana at least mas watertight. Kaya ayun kahit gusto ko lagyan ng ceiling at wiring ung kitchen postpone muna. Tyaga muna sa extension wires.
