Hi to all,

I need some advices urgently, can someone help? The story is that my home's aluminium grilles are completed and the grille contractor is asking for payment already but I realised that there are scratches here and there. Is it a norm to expect fine scratches on the grilles? Dunno whether to release the last payment to him. Someone please advice, thanks...

hmm, without measurements it's rather difficult for us to comment coz grilles are usually charged by psf

but i'd say yours is rather expensive, esp if it's normal aluminium grilles

judging from the number of panels you have, likely the grilles cost $12-$15psf

normal aluminium grilles cost around $5psf, wrought iron around $10psf.

Hi wondering if anyone knows of a place to do acrylic type of window grills? I know in S'pore the common thing is to use wrought iron / aluminium grills but in places like Hong Kong, there is a new trend using plastic/acrylic strips to put across windows as they are subtle looking and do not obscure view outside. They look incredibly nice. Anyone can advice where I can get these from?

Hi,

Anyone besides applefreak has engaged the service of 'panggiap'? Got a quotation from them and is about to engage them too. But now is a little sceptical after reading what applefreak said about their workmanship. Any comments?

Help Needed!

Have signed contract with a window installer to change all the windows grilles on Monday.

Then yesterday, another person came to take the measurement again. After he left,

the saleperson called me up to say that it is nicer to use bigger frame for my window, ask

me to top up $400 plus.

Acording to them , the existing window is sliding and i am changing to casement, so the concrete window

frame is 4" and the window frame is 1.5 so there will be a gap there. They say that it will be nicer to

cover the gap but I said never mind.

They pestered me alot and finally I told them that at most I will top up $200 to change to bigger window.

Can someone enlighten me on what is this different sizes of window?

Thanks in advance.
