Looking for channel grate (flooding)

Where can I get channel grates in hua hin?

I tried to post a example but images are too big.

The long grates dug in between say lawn and a concrete area to run watter away.

They got plastic grates here im Australia i could bring over if I cant buy any in hua hin.

Cheers.

Re: Strange incident on the road last night

That's a worry!

On raising this with my wife she says its been known that scooters have been jacked with a similar scenario in Hua Hin... riders knocked off, losing their scooter.

I'm glad our car doors lock automatically as we drive off and we got a top front/rear dashcam.

Re: Good Tiler... Whats a fair price?

I'd say a fair price also depends on how large your job is. If you are laying 4 m2 then the price is going to be higher than if you were laying 40m2. A 4m2 job may be completed in half a day but you may have to pay for 2 workers, there may be a lot of cuts involved so I wouldn't get too fixated on ...

All my floors in Hua Hin house have started to pop so will need to be retiled at some time. Bit difficult to organise on holiday trips. Good thinking about the mater...

Re: Good Tiler... Whats a fair price?

We had another chat to our guy. I forgot to mention that price includes material, we only supply the tiles.

He is also removing items from the bathroom, washer/dryer, toilet and refitting after.

Good Tiler... Whats a fair price?

Our bathroom is getting re-tiled.

I know a guy and have seen his jobs, he is very good. Cuts nice angle joints, nice grouting and finishing. His rate is 450/sqm.

Seems fair?

My personal dislike is people who walk into a restaurant shirtless or especially in swimwear.
It just shows lack of respect for other customers and the staff.

Agreed. These people clearly lack etiquette.
