steel roofing advice needed

Recommended Posts

My Fiance is looking at removing a poorly done second floor at her parents house in Noen Maprang District/ Phitsanulok Province. She has been getting crazy high prices for steel roofing installation! Does anyone have any helpful advice/ suppliers/ cost estimates for good quality, insulated roofing? What are standard sheet dimensions and thicknesses? The house is 40 sq. meters. I appreciate any wisdom here!  She is financing this project from her own funds and I don't want to see her robbed blind.

Not as easy as that, the problem is that there are many specifications in steel roofing projects.

A company will be expensive who specialises in a certain product.

A recommended local builder who can roof can be very inexpensive using roof materials from say Global house to make a very sound insulated waterproof, heat proof roof.

If you have no knowledge of the building industry let alone Thailand let her get on with it.

Every major town has a Thai Watsadu...their prices for building materials is a good starting point. Unfortunately, builders seem to want a massive profit, a three/four day job for two people and materials of 10k most want to charge 40k upwards which as we know is way off the mark for labour costs,

I am thinking that the steel roofing will be 24k Gold plated when installed at the prices she has gotten!

Giving a little more information as to the prices quoted, details of Exactly what is being quoted for would be helpful in deciding if the prices are crazy or reasonable.

250,000 - 300,000 baht for a 39 sq/m house!

I can't help with Phitsnulok, but you can at least see what materials I used and the costs (in Chiang Mai, 8 months ago) in this old thread:

While the house is 39mhow big is the roof? What is included in that cost? Just the steel sheets and fitting? Subframe? 
 

FWIW our house and workshop is about 220mbut the roof is about 430m2. We have about a 15slope so the total roof is probably a smaller square metre area than one with a more usual steeper slope. The house SWMBO built for her grandmum has a roof area that is about 4X the house area.

Is that a misprint? 40 sqm is the size of the average studio apartment in a condo.

Has the OP considered the alternative, cement tile sheeting? Heavier, cheaper, less rain noise, assuming the roof beams can take it.

250,000 - 300,000  baht is definitely a ripoff. I could build a whole 36 sqm guesthouse for that in Chiang Rai.

7,500 per sqm aprox is ridiculous for a roof cover strip and replacement @ Thai prices.

To help need a Roof plan and access requirements.

Replacing what with what.

What's exactly is poorly done second floor roof removing what.

Yes it is probably way too high but without more information a sensible figure is impossible to suggest.
