Re: Weatherstripping for Doors

If the gap is just in a few mm (say less than 3-4 mm), you can use Silicon sealant around the window frame, and this should help stop the seepage. You can do it yourself too, there are many videos online on youtube on how to do this.
Any suggestions for my query is much appreciated.

Re: Bank Engineer Verification

I had taken a loan from SBI bank, and they never bothered to come and visit the compound of my house. They used to click pictures from about 50 feet and walk away in a minute.

Re: Electrical Fittings

Based on my experience where I took the quotation from a couple of different vendors (some so called reputed ones in BVK), I found them offering good rates on Havells and Legrand. For other brands you might still try to explore other options.

After a lot of consideration, I have ordered LG UPVC windows. Currently its 20% cheaper than Fenesta and 100% of the parts are manufac...
