Any Condo Ground Floor Patio Owners Here?

Recommended Posts

To what I know and learnt from my ID, even putting a simple Poly-Carbonate plastic sheet also need PE endorsement. This is because

it is not as simple as it seems.

1) They have to dig a "trench" into the structural wall. This is to let the PC sheet "sit" into it.

2) Then apply water-proofing material in the "trench"

3) Install the PC sheet into the "trench".

4) Water proof again.

5) Silicone over to protect the water-proofing.

It is step 1, which is critical as the work touches the structure. And in order not to let patio owner A do method A and B do method

B and so on, MCST will want to have control and final say on how should the work be done and so on.. :bangwall:

Like what we learn in army lor. Everything must standardise... cannot anyhow come... most important, it is for SAFETY :dribble:

Hi batman,

Wow! That really sounds so 'army' wor... Hehe :)

Does any of you heard of this 'smart window'? I'm wondering whether ground floor patio units can install that or not..... Ofcos still must get the prior approval from management.

As for the installing of this smart window, it does not require any drilling of whatever into the structure. We just need to install the track and that's it. Hmmmm..... Wondering wondering... ;)

I have a patio/balcony exactly like this one (minus the fish pond and the beautiful decking!)

The problem I am having is that I live on the third floor and the mosquitoes and other insects are killing the fun of having such a lovely balcony!

Does anyone know of a flyscreen or insect screen I can put to surround my balcony? Does any company do that here?

Why not do some timber decking? It looks like a garden in your house. I know a guy that does timber decking. You can contact Mr NG at 93384114. When he talk to me, i find him very friendly haha.

I have a condo unit with a large patio. The unit size is around 2100sqft and the patio takes up around 1/3 of the total size based on the floor plan. I put outdoor tables and chairs on the patio but quite frankly, I see no use for the patio. This condo unit is rented out and I do not think the tenants use the patio either. The only reason why I bought it was because the developer sold it at a rock-bottom psf price in 2008.

I am still thinking of what to do to my patio. So far, I am thinking to put outdoor dining set and outdoor sofa set.

Guess the area is for us to hang laundry to dry.. hahaha :)

3.Small gardening area for my wife.

4.Flooring. To combine timber flooring and grasses.

5.Wall. To use live bamboo wall and/or to apply the vertical gardening wall.
