    Upvc Doors And Windows

    Hi, I have just bought an unfinished house outside of Pattaya, it has the Brown Alu Windows and Doors and i am thinking of having them all taken out and replacing with upvc, For insulation and security reasons (and i dont like them) There are 5 1700x2100 Patio sliding doors, and 12 other windows around 1500mm wide.
    Firstly, what kind of budget are we talking about to have these made and fitted? And who provide a good service for decent/reasonable windows doors?
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Those UPVC insulating pane [double pane] would be worth the extra money here in thailand, if they have used insulating block and then the windows, it will save much money and discomfort from being able to air con the place and then the double pane and block density will be a god send having to live with these noisy cocksuckers and their full volume partys and the noisy fucking WAT speakers blaring all the time , starting at 0500.

    well ya know, I have experience with double pane windows.
    When I traded for that cabin in northern Idaho up in the Rocky Mountains it was not quite finished yet, The end facing the creek had the lower windows and door in and everything was done except for the rest of the end of the house was all windows and they went to the top of the house, the openings were covered in heavy clear plastic, so it was air tite enough but the noise when the spring breakup came was terrible, sounded like a train running thru a bowling alley, water real high and fast with ice and rolling boulders and smashing rocks together,, Jesus christ..
    I was kinda sorry that we had got that place, even as beautiful as it was.
    That summer I had the windows made for the openings and got them in, and next spring when breakup came you couldn't hardly hear it,, love them windows. wish I could have found em when I built this one.

    Afraid not, was a stream about 2 meters wide and not to deep during the summer, Just a mountain stream that was very cold because it came from melting glaciers and I pumped our household water to a tank for our use, but there was a glass on a limb on a tree down by the creek and as it was close to the back porch, just go down and have an ice cold drink any time you wanted, but during breakup it was a river, and if you fell in you were bound to be drowned.
