Recommendation.
From
our
practical
experiences during market survey, the following
recommendations are provided:
It is better to use plastic doors in kitchens
and toilets instead of wooden doors as the

wooden doors would become damp in


contact with water.
The doors and windows available in our
country are all Chinese and they are not
durable. So it is recommended for main door
that we can use Burma Shegun woods of
aristocratic design. For room doors, we can
use Burma/Chittagong Shegun as well .
In case of windows, it is recommended to use
reflective glasses or insulated glasses for
reducing green house effect.
Many windows should be provided in a house
for proper ventilation of air.
It is best to use more south facing windows
for more circulation of fresh air.
In our table, we have shown the unit price,
but incase of construction of a total building,
the cumulative cost gets reduced.
Conclusion. For last 12 minutes or so we have
seen the short presentation on doors and
windows.
The market values shown are just collected
sample data. The design and cost limit will
obviously vary according to the taste and
financial ability of the users. Higher the cost,
obviously better will be the quality.
