  1. Gracias! I’m going with the satin glass.
  2. Hola, I’m looking to completely obscure some windows. I think satin glass would obscure the view both in and out but still let the light through. Does anyone know if there is a film that could be applied to the existing glass the would obscure the view?
  3. Hola! I’m looking for a trustworthy propane guy who speaks enough English that I can use WhatsApp to communicate. Any recommendations?
  4. Another Quick question: Does anyone know the cost to have ilox installed and does that need to be paid prior to installation? I’m also hearing it will be a few month wait. Sound right?
  5. Quick question: what would be a reasonable cost to fumigate a medium size house with no yard?
  6. I agree but now our tiles are such a mess and need to be redone. We will be very careful in the future and we really love the Saltillo tiles😎.
  7. Yes, my floors will absolutely need to be stripped and restarted. Artsnob, do you remember the name of your sealer?
  8. Just a quick question. A few years ago our then property managers arranged for our Saltillo tiles to be refinished and sealed. I can’t remember the problem other than we were told they need to be resealed periodically and we wanted more of a sheen. Well, work was done by someone who clearly didn’t know what they were doing and now they are peeling and look awful. I seem to remember someone warning against a particular product when sealing Saltillo (after our mess, of course☹️), and now I need to be sure that doesn’t happen again. Does anyone know what NOT to use? The name of the product that should be used would be helpful as well. Gracias!
  9. Gracias Ferret. When the leak was undetected under the house was there a gas smell? I’m losing so much gas I can’t believe we don’t smell it! I agree that now we will have to reroute the lines and am hoping to find a skilled plumber for the job.
  10. Hi everyone, I am dealing with a significant propane leak. I have updated a suspicious water heater, replaced the regulator and had a small leak repaired. I have had people investigate and have found no leaks, but I’m having to fill our large tank about every six weeks whether we are there or not. Can anyone recommend a really good plumber?
  11. I have many, many plants in containers on three floors of our house in Ajijic. Some of the plants need to be transplanted, many need to be moved or discarded. Our mirador has some very large cactus we would like removed. Does anyone know of someone who could help us get the job done? Obviously we need some muscle, but also someone with knowledge of the plants and a little English would be great. A garden center would be good because a lot of the plants to be discarded are fine, we just don’t have room for them. Any thoughts?
  12. Curmudgeon, could you share who did the work for you?
