  1. Dental Implants Chiang Mai - 75K

    I had completely forgotten about Songkran, but it ends April 15 and, more likely, I'll be in April 25 and stay until May 9, with the last day in Bangkok. I did find a sprinkler system man who is half British and speaks English, which is good for me. He put a new sprinkler system in a year ago and recommended putting in a separate water tank, where the well water used for irrigation could be filtered and not clog the sprinkler heads. I'll try to get this done this time. I've had a renter at my house since August and the main reason for coming over is to meet him in person and, as it sounds like he will be there for a couple of years, see what things he would like to have done around the house. Ther's a few things that I would like to have done, like replacing the gezebo that I had to tear down a year ago because it was falling apart. I'll check in advance on some of the dentist recommendations. Thanks!
  2. Dental Implants Chiang Mai - 75K

    I'm going to be in Chiangmai for two weeks in April. I'm looking for a crown on a molar and whatever they can do to a lower front tooth thatgot knocked out but still has a 25% base left. Is 2 weeks enough time to get them finished?
  3. Recommended house insurance company?

    As you can tell, the first floor is brick, the ceiling for the first floor is wood, and the second floor is wood. The only type of wood used is teak. On both the first and second floors, the back of the house is concrete, which would be the kitchen and bathroom on the first floor and two bathrooms and outdoor patio on the second floor. I'll get several quotes, and include Bangkok insurance as one of them.
  4. I'm not getting my hopes too high but a real estate company has told me that an American couple moving here wants to rent my house. Assuming that the negotiations go smoothly, at some point, I need to insure the house, preferably for full replacement value. It is a 2 story teak house, with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. I spent 4.2 million baht building it in 2002 and would assume that both the price of teak and labor has gone up in the last 15 years. Would an insurance company appraise the house or should I hire one? Are there any recommendations out there of an insurance company that you have been happy with and came through when catrastropy strikes? Any information would be appreciated.
