  2. Ah yes he resorts to gay comments. I guess someone is insecure with their sexuality then. It's ok mate when you reach puberty you will feel better until then keep going with the immature comments. [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very true mate, i was just talking about the structure but after that hell yes the electrics. Where to even start on that. No RCBO, no insulation on underground cables, no insulation on attic cables, over ground wires hanging and stretching, insufficient grounding or no grounding, inferior quality wire, incorrect fuses, No earthing on showers or kitchen sockets. The list is endless but hey if Grollie reckons it's ok to buy an old house then he must be right. I wonder if he built his or bought it secondhand [emoji848][emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I don't buy second hand old junk sorry. As for not being able to afford it [emoji23][emoji23] Considering you know nothing about me that's possibly the dumbest comment ever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Concrete cancer can occur even after 10 years. Besides that who wants to buy a 10 yr old home in Thailand. Tell your thai mrs that's the plan and see her reaction [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. No way I would be buying a house built without me knowing what went into it and what the quality was like. You can buy a house that looks amazing but you got no guarantee that the foundation is sound or that the steel was the right quality. Building your own is the only way to go. My builder did a brilliant job on my place last year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I never actually said that concrete pools didn't have issues but as you said if they are done correctly then the possible issues are rare. It's also a myth that concrete pools are more expensive. The facts are that most people compare an expensive full bells and whistles concrete pool with the cheapest of the cheap fibreglass pool to make them look more impressive price-wise. For the size the op wants in equal quality to a concrete pool would be around 1 mill baht. Of course you can get cheaper but then the problems arise so it's false economy. You mention new tech and new breakthroughs in fibreglass but you failed to mention that those options bring the price up from that 450k basic minimum that was quoted. Like I said to each their own but I did a lot of research as I was looking to get a pool and the downside of fibreglass far exceed concrete on a like for like basis.

  8. With the greatest of respect, I messaged the op yesterday at the same time I posted my comment so he has a complete list of my (and millions of other people's reasons) as it's public knowledge on the internet and also from Pool building companies that are not specifically trying to sell fibreglass. I have seen the limitations and problems first hand so it's not an opinion it's a fact. The reason I didn't post them here is because it will take the thread off topic. My comment was merely to get people to do some research before jumping into something. If the op wants to post the details I sent him then he is more than welcome to do so as it's his thread.

  9. Personally I wouldn't touch a fibreglass pool for many reasons but to reach their own. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Common building mistakes in Asia and Thailand

    Agree with everything the above poster has said and likewise I had to do a lot of research before I found the perfect builder for my place. It's built a year now and no issues whatsoever. More to the point I have seen his older work and it's perfect. Unlike many builds from other companies I checked out which have cracks, leaks and all the other fun problems that go with picking a bad crew. Another thing to mention is that if you expect to find a good builder that can start your job straight away then your delusional. A good builder will be busy and any one that can start immediately is obviously not in demand which is an immediate warning sign. Anyway if anyone needs my guys details drop me a pm he builds all over Thailand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    While I agree that flaming is uncalled for its very difficult not to post negative comments regarding this thread as the op clearly has no idea what he is talking about. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
