Imported, specialist and unusual alternatives to materials that are normally used here in Thailand are all very good, and probably in the long run would offer better solutions and higher build quality, but I subscribe to the notion that if the building team haven't used the materials or system before, then it's probably wise to not be the person to start paying for experimentation and on-the-job training!
I looked at all sorts of roofing as well as construction materials and methods for my build, but as I went with a local team, after some discussion with the builder, we decided that the tried and tested way would be most straightforward and cost effective.
Concrete, brick, steel frame roof, hardwood windows and doors, and after some discussion (mostly dismissal of the alternatives by my builder), went for CPAC Monier roof tiles... They have been around for 70 years and still do a very good job, as many alternatives seem cheaper, or look funkier, but are not up to the weather here. One important feature in the Monier tiles is that they have interlocking rain channels, which stop water seeping underneath when there is a strong wind. Many other roofing systems I looked at had nothing like this as a back-up in their design, which in my opinion is just asking for trouble.
Again, the overwhelming element when choosing systems or materials is familiarity. Yes I could have gone with Qcon, but then I'd have to change the team for that, same for galvanized roofing system, and not save anything on costs, as each team would add on their mark-up's to compensate for the piecemeal fashion of the job (as opposed to an all-in cost).
Same goes for windows, many would poo-poo the idea of hardwood frames in favour of UVPC or Aluminium, for ease of maintenance and supposed lifespan, but I have seen such shoddy installations of both that I just didn't see them being options in my plans.
That said, if wood is chosen, there are a few more considerations and definitely more maintenance... but ultimately, I see doors and windows as an inherent design feature for a house, rather than just functional devices to cover openings, so my choice was down to aesthetics as much as anything.
As I am still building my shack, I won't say I know it all, and I am sure to come unstuck in some way, but I have lived in LOS for long enough to have experienced living in a wide range of different buildings from antique teakwood houses, condos, to modern pool villas, to get an idea of what mistakes can be made and the levels of quality of construction and finish that are deemed as acceptable over here.
