from what I know, if the glass is too big ans cannot bring into the lift, the workers gotta climb stairs and bring it up...
and glass is very ex too. go back to your ID and tell him others quote you cheaper than him lor. ask him whether he can give you cheaper lor.
U should buy from Besglas directly in this case cos it seems that ID did a mark up already. I also have a Besglas Glass sliding door tat cos bout $850. Just order from Besglas and they will do the installation and everything for u and get yr ID to strike the item out from the quote.
hi DST, i've sent u my contractor's HP liao.. just let him know ding recommend, i'm sure he can give u good price.. if u wanna see his works, can ask him to arrange a time to come over my humble 3 room flat to take a look..
$950 is way too expensive.
The glass man must be laughing all the way to the bank.
The basic cost of glass is actually very cheap.
Can always get a sticker man to install those special effect sticker, eg. frosted ones with designs.
I got my stickerman to design for our kitchen glass door too.
Here is his website or can always can call him at 91431104
actually it's not a good idea to get contractor to stick stickers on your glass for the frosted effect. Better to get them to do a proper sand blasting for a lasting effect. That's what i did for mine.
Anyone still need contact for glass door?
The thickness of my tempered glass is 12mm, the normal one is 10mm. My glass door is for 7 feet, 3.5feet fixed panel and 3.5 feet sliding glass door. I pay $1500 for 12mm thickness. if i would have taken the 10mm, it will be $1250
They are fixing up the glass door this wed, so if u guys want, i can post some pic in due course
hi, Applezz, can I have your quotation too? Actually i think a lot of people is keen to have the contact, why dun you juz publish out the rates
I'm gg to to a bigger glass pannel than yours, ard 2 times bigger so I need to know how much it will cost. I think my ID will definitely overquote me... haha.
P/S: Since so many people is gg to buy, why dun we consolidate orders and do a group buy instead? Will be more efficient and might cost less.
Anyone interested pls email me at [email protected]
I'll try to consolidate the orders and see if there is any chance of getting it cheaper? Also, pls continue to actively lookout for cheaper buys.... glass is expensivce nowadays...
Anyone out there fixed a glass door for ur kitchen which is swing type, not slide one? I heard from friend saying that there is two type of swing glass door. 1 is those like mcdonald glass door, it will close back by its own. The other 1 is those like bathroom's shower glass screen, it wont close by it own. Which 1 is better? Care to give ur opinion?
ya, it will be more costly for the door spring. And that mean whenever u go into kitchen u have to push open the door too... But closed door is nicer leh. If i intend to do one, of cos must close everytime, can see everyday. If keep it open, what for do a glass one, as well do normal door hor... Very confused leh... Without the spring one, will it be dangerous if push open the door too hard, will the door bang against the wall n cause breakage? tempered glass can break too...
I think you should think about practical usage too. Whether it is spring or not, you can still close it all the time. Question is your place layout. If there is breeze going thru the door, then it is best to open it ~ keep cool air flowing your house. good for feng shui too.
Your question on if push open the door too hard, with it cause breakage? No, if they put a stoppage on top or bottom.
My kitchen is using 2 panels. (1 fix and 1 open) no spring. Reason cheaper and there is lot of winds coming from kitchen area. There is stoppage on bottom so even it bang hard when the wind is TOO stong (believe me, it is extreme windy), it would not break.
good thing of this spring hinges is it will act as a door stopper and also door closer. Meaning if there is strong wind suddenly blow when your door in open position, it won't blow and bang your glass door
If u decided to get spring hinges, make sure get a good one (definetely not cheap and u will not be headache of maintenance and repair)
