Europvc Windows

Recommended Posts

Windows were installed in the new build yesterday. All were white UPVC, double pane gray casement windows except for one small awning window over the toilet. Mossie screens were  rollers that pull down in a track and retract to the top.

Where are you located? What was the cost and service like?

I’m looking to do something similar in central Thailand.

Thanks

The OP posted excellent photos of some very attractive windows with screens. Yes the price would be helpful, but he should be proud of those casement windows with excellent airflow.

I think the clue is in the topic title: EuroPVC are located in Pattaya. http://www.letmegooglethat.com/?q=europvc

I hesitate to describe any UPVC window as "attractive". To me UPVC frames always look very thick and clunky, when compared to aluminium or even wood.

But for UPVC they dont look bad.

I agree with you on that. I don't consider uPVC a good option for small windows. If you look at the 3rd pic above, a huge part of the surface is taken by the frames. Aluminium would have been better IMHO; a lot thinner frames.

 

On the other hand, I used uPVC for big door-windows (2.30m x 1.20m) to my balcony and it's perfect. :smile:

For me the heat reduction / noise reduction and better quality mechanisms and locks of the UVPC are more of a factor than the appearance alone.

 

Do they have a choice of colours or white only, anyone know?

@JaiLai

- there are different qualities for aluminium frames too. You can get good ones, in white, with good mechanism, and still far thinner frames than PVC ones. Noise and heat reduction mainly come from the glass, not the frame, and unsure if a difference PVC/Alu ?

- Yes uPVC is available as "wood imitation" too. And maybe other colors?

@claynlr are none of them  exposed to the rain at all? It looks well finished off but there appears to be quite a lot of architrave finishing or was that a design feature?

Almost all the aluminium frames i've seen here over the years have looked very cheap and nasty.

 

Can you recommend a company that supplies quality aluminium products? 

 

Thanks for the info.

It's true that most local aluminium suppliers only have the cheap and nasty type of frames but there are some suppliers who have good quality imported aluminium frames.
In no particular order:

http://www.teascothailand.com/
http://aluminium.prime-asia.co.th/
http://www.sunparadise.co.th/
http://www.aluzat.com/
http://www.crystalview.co.th/en/
http://www.hevta.co.th/?model=contents&type=home
http://window.arc-thailand.com/about

I would stress that none of above is any form of personal recommendation. On the contrary, I found most if not all the above to be very overpriced and/or unable to provide proper quotes, and some were simply incapable of replying to an enquiry at all. "Useless" is the word that springs to mind.

Imported frames seem to cost at least four or five times more than local ones, and some places seem to want up to ten times more. All the prices I obtained were many times what the same thing would have cost in Europe.

Hey guys-

 

Sorry for late response..been busy at work.

 

Yes Europvc has different color frames but at a higher price than white and I think the color fading guarantee wasn't as long as the white. 2/3's of the windows are under carport or the extended roof at the front. The other 1/3 are under a 1M overhang. The concrete detail around the windows were I think 300 something baht for around a 5' section. They really set the windows off for not too much. They have double pane glass for noise and insulation purposes. The casements provide good cross ventilation but when AC is needed I wanted energy savings. UPVC won't transfer heat as aluminum do (unless a thermal break is added but not sure that is available in Thailand). The profiles are German from Aluplast. Hardware is German. A foreman and 4 installers came and were finished in a day. 

 

Here is the size breakdown and price:

4-100CM x 140CM

2-90CM x 140CM

1-300CM x 140CM (The large window in pics...3-100CM x 140CM mulled together)

2- 100CM x 100CM

All the above are casement..also have a 40CM x 40CM awning window over the toilet.

 

All windows have roller insect screens, stored in an enclosure at the top of the window and pulled down in a track when needed. Price was 204,500B for double pane glass, single pane would have been 181,900B so about 22,600B to upgrade.

 

Aaron Eggleton is the Managing Director at Europvc and was wonderful to work with, answering all e-mails promptly and re-quoting numerous times due to my indecision of what I wanted!!

 

Thanks for the comments and any questions I can answer I will try. The windows were a big cost of my home if not the single largest purchase and were researched extensively!

 

In answer to poster Delight, yes bragging.....jackass

Thanks for all the links, I’ll look into it
