Windows are necessary for ventilation, both for natural light and air circulation. Windows provide the much needed relief in an otherwise closed atmosphere. We bring you 3 options that you can choose from for windows in your Dream Home.

Wall surface needs to be properly plastered before installing these windows, else the gaps will result in cracks and leakages. Best option is to have a Granite or Stone ledge all around and fix these windows within. It obviously increases the cost, but then gives a great look and problem free service. Option of having a mosquito screen in-built gives these windows 5 stars from us.

Teak Wood Windows are still the most widely used windows in our homes. These windows require that they are made by skilled carpenter and that the wood is properly seasoned. Regular maintenance in terms of painting or polish is required, apart from problems of warping and gaps and not closing properly.
