BUILDING &

RENOVATION

RESOURCES

During the process of building a new home, born out of desire to be active participants in building and outfitting - and to save money and time - we combed Guadalajara and the USA for well priced, superior quality materials and innovative building techniques. We would love to share our discoveries with you!  And to connect you with the professional experts whom we met, who helped us personalize our home to our unique tastes, needs and desires. Contact Us for further information or referrals to experts in the following areas.

Windows

 

From high end aluminum to affordable PVC windows, we've found 2 Guadalajara based manufacturers that stood out from the crowd in price, quality and service.

After visiting and spending time at both facilities, we can highly recommend both with confidence.

Looking for the best in security and keeping out the bugs? Then PVC is your ultimate choice and it's only about 30% more than top of the line aluminum.

 

Roofing

 

A traditional well built roof consists of multiple layers: beams, bricks, cement, insulating membrane, ceramic tiles, and many coats of sealant. Imagine the price tag of so much work and materials! Moreover, the sealant deteriorates in 3-5 years and has to be re-applied for as long as you own the house!

We've found a BRILLIANT SOLUTION: Thermo-fused polyester sheets, which are applied in record time (2-3 days) at half the cost of the traditional roof. In addition, this roof is guaranteed for 10-12 years, saving you the hassle and money needed to re-seal every 3-5 years.  We researched Guadalajara and found the perfect company who specialized in industrial and residential roof insulation.
