    @artie
    approximately 16 windows + 2 doors, actually hindi pa nakakabit dahil hindi pa tapos yung ceiling works. hopefully by 3rd week of Dec malagay na nila.

    nag pa quote kami sa tatlong supplier, napansin ko rin hindi parerehas yung kapal at workmanship, yung iba mas mura pero mas manipis naman. iba rin prices ng kulay. pinakamura yung white then mahal yung parang wood type na finish.


    nice one, simillar tayo sir pero mga 6 suppliers ako nag pa quote. upvc white lang po ako, puro generic sizes except sliding door (2.5m x 4.8m 4 panels)

    1. 210
    2. 140
    3. 450
    4. 550
    5. 650
    6. Analok Type 240

    yung #2 okay sana kaso, disappointed kami sa showroom, accomodation, kapal at workmanship.
    yung #345 commercial type medyo makukulit laki ng mark up.
    dun ako sa 2. medyo okay okay kasi ang marketing at 10 years warranty pa ta yun. u&k.

    sana okay pag deliver next week.
  • @euan
    base sa facebook maganda yung design ng u&k, actually diyan kami nagtingin ng mga designs. congrats sir.

    sa akin di pa pwede magkabit ng windows, badtrip supplier ng roofing namin nabitin sa materials. kaya nakatenga yung ceiling works.
  • @euan
    nakita niyo yung kenneth and mock na upvc windows? grabe pala yung prices, sabi kasi maganda raw talaga yung craftmanship.
  • hindi sir eh.

    what im looking for is cost over performance ratio. pero leaning more towards cost.
    kaya mura at matibay yung u&k sa tingin ko dahil may option na ikaw ang mag install, lobo ang price kapag sila. dependent ako sa craftmaship ng labor team ko. basta mabusisi at pulido mag silicon, tox at drill okay na sakin.

    goodluck sir sa installation. to both of us he he he.
  • May advantage ba mag paUPVC vs gypsum board ceiling sa garage bukod sa aesthetics? Additional 20k kasi for 38sqm area.

    Madame ako natutunan sa thread na ito, maraming salamat.
    I post ko next year yung finished product.
    Ipinasok ko na ng equity loan yung property nasimot na ko at wala pa kong appliances hehe.
  • @haku
    nagpa pvc rin kami sa eaves/spandrel, iniisip ko lang na advantage kapag may tulo yung bubong hindi siya magabsorb vs gypsum board na hindi pwede mabasa.
  • @ haku

    hanap hanap sir ng murang materyaleses. marami sa s*l*t.com.ph
    or dun sa pinakamurang aircon hardware na alam ko c*tih*rdware

    to answer the question. by far id go to pvc or upvc ceiling over non. basta makunat ang materyales hindi kinakalawang at anay; id settle for it.

    iwas ako sa kahoy as much as possible po.
  • Ipinasok ko na ng equity loan yung property nasimot na ko at wala pa kong appliances hehe.


    ako naman baliktad, im in the danger zone to halt the operations dahil nauna yung mga appliances at mwebles :))
  • Thanks euen_ilagan and frequenzy.

    Pinagypsum board ko nalang yung garage ko, pag nag leak nalang ako magPVC tutal may furrings nanaman na nakaabang.

    ako naman baliktad, im in the danger zone to halt the operations dahil nauna yung mga appliances at mwebles :))


    Buti sir naipasok niyo agad kahit ongoing pa din construction works.
    Kaya din ako nagloan para makaavail ng cash discount at pangdagdag sa huling payment.

    Concern ko naman ngayun first time ata magkabit nung installer ng granite ng undermount sink kaya kelangan bantayan maigi.
  • Up ko lang sa previous na tanong ko. Mali ata pagkakaintindi. Yung halimbawa ko, ikaw yung may-ari sa left side na property at ikaw may-ari ng wall. Yung nasa right ang nagkabit ng bubong sa wall mo.

    Bawal ba yun under existing laws/building code? What if pinayagan mo?
  • I am under the impression na kung yung wall mo, nasa loob ng property line (as opposed sa nasa gitna ng line), hindi pwede yung kinabit na bubong, unless may approval from owner ng nasa left

    Dapat nagtayo sila muna ng sarili nilang wall tapos dun nila kinabit yung bubong

    Anyway, let's wait for other inputs
    Don't know any laws or rules pertaining to that, except that private property yung wall (kung nasa loob ng property line) and the owner na katabi doesn't have rights to do alterations on it

    if the wall is within your property line, fire wall or a fence wall, bawal lumagpas o papatungan o gagawin din nila na wall yun ng house nila or a make shift shanty or any for their use...

    pero kung nagusap naman kayo at pinayagan mo naman, then that is fine, pero in the long run karapatan mo pa din paalis yun kung gugustuhin mo naman...
  • mga sir, sorry hindi ko alam kung saan ko itatanong tong question

    ok lang ba yung mga cheap-ish Panasonic Shower Heater sa Ace/ True Value?
    may iba ba kayong mare-recommend?

    TIA!
  • @artie

    ok lang yan ,meron din akong nabili na panasonic shower heater last year ,gumagana pa naman hanggang ngayun,kung meron kapang makikitang national na water heater mas ok yun,i have a national water heater and its more than 20 years old buhay pa din
  • ^
    Thanks sir

    Ala na akong nakikitang national
    Although may naaalala akong naging National-Panasonic yung brand, siguro nag merge tapos ni-drop na lang yung national na name

    Ganda nga yun, national yung brand ng ref na nabili ko for my parents 15 years ago ata. Buhay pa hanggang ngayon
  • Ooops, mali pala ako

    Did some quick search, National pala is Panasonic din talaga
  • anu ginamit niyo na countertop? balak kasi namin talaga is white. ang dami pa lang choices, meron granite, synthetic granite, quartz at solid surface. pinakmura na nakita ko is yung solid surface nasa 3.9k per sqm, yung granite nasa 5k per sqm. kaso di ko lang alam kung matibay yun solid surface,
  • We used granite (code Jet Black). I am sure imported China granite yung ginamit ng contractor namin dahil yun ata pinakamura. Mamaya ko palang babalikan if okay ang installation.
  • ^Granite na china nagfade daw. Maganda yung made in italy.


  • @frequenzy...

    matibay yan solid surface, good alternative to granite, masmagaan pa...
  • Good day!

    Thanks sir @SnakeEyes416140.
    Will check some youtube videos po.
  • I've backread previous posts on this thread.
    Maybe below is also what im going to do. But my concern is the uneven wall surface which is surely noticeable once painted. Question is, prior putting the neutraliser what would be the best to apply to uneven surface? Masilya, Skimcoat or Patching Compound ?
