Woww....another exciting journey to begin..... :rolleyes:

me oso thinking of changing whole hse windows grills but the current grills are in funi pattern...they r pertruding out de....soo i think will need to change the windows as well in order to put the grills....if u got the best quote of the grills, do share with me....at least i hv a rough fig on how much more to save up....hahahhahaa.... :P

If you say your grills are pertruding out most likely is like mine... but it look okie to me le...

We wanted to change the windows cause got 2 case of window leaking... the very first time is at our MBR... we put silicon all around the window rubber black tubing so no water came in anymore...

2nd time is just recently.. it was raining heavily usually we did not ledge our windows so we just do the normal closing.. just put the windows inwards and secure it with the window "L" shape looking lock... came back at night than I saw a pond of small water on the floor... than did some CSI... found that the wind blow open the window than some water came in.... so basically that one our fault.

I did some check the black rubber tubing around the window could no longer be use... cause I can see algae in the black tubing under the strong sunlight....

If I change the windows only I would also need to patch up the sides of the affected area so I think painting also is a must for at least the wall of the windows.

Hey butters :) glad to see you here... hope you are doing good.

Ya lor cause the common bathroom, kitchen & windows + grills we did not redo during our reno. No $$ mah... so no choice now that can do...

I tell my ah lao that either do it at 1 go but we have to see got enough $ or not... if not enough than got to do in stages :( the 1st got to do is the windows and grills.... cause that one the rubber tubing gone le.. and old.

Than CNY coming soon got to have some cash to pao ang pao too.. so cannot anyhow spent :P

Wall crack ah... there is one time Indonesia got earthquick than I saw a huge crack on my wall *super sian* that wall last time got door and the ex owner patch up so bound to have the hairline crack. I think unless u bandage the hairline crack *with a sort of bandage netting for mending wall or celing* than plaster it...

Oh I got the estimated quote for the windows and grills from Jit Sheng.... so ex S$5300 not incl of GST.

We will be doing the whole house windows as follows:

Living Room: 4 or 5 panel 180 degree type (powder coated dark brown)

Study/Cozy Area: 3 panel 180 degree type (powder coated dark brown)

http://www.jitsheng.com/index.php

Bedroom 2 & 3: 4 panel sliding type (normal aluminum oxidize - the dark brown colour)

MBR: 2 panel casement & 1 panel casement (normal aluminum oxidize - the dark brown colour)

Service balcony: 4 panel sliding type (normal aluminum oxidize - the dark brown colour)

May I know is this the normal price??

If you all have been following my T-Blog, I did highlight that we have some problem with our elect. We call up an electrician and he explain to us the real problem :)

Problem 1: Power Trip in a bluemoon when we swith off the switches, mainly it come from the living room only.

Due to: PLC lights. Yes its PLC lights thats the cause there is something in the PLC light which will cause power trip. So cannot do much on this but at least we know the real reason.

Problem 2: Portable Oven when started to use and in heating mode the power trip.

Due to: The oven itself... Yes less useage of the oven will cause the house power to trip. Its due to the water vapour in the oven itself so if we use the oven everytime than there will not be such problem.

At lease we found a good electrician who is willing to explain the facts to us and not wasting each others time and spending $$ for no reason.

Those who need Lic. Electrician can go to http://elise.ema.gov.sg/elise/homepage_public_menu.jsp

Search under "Search Lic Worker" than click "Electrical Worker who offers services to consumer" can still see the electrician's photo too :P
