Use of wooden planks is one of the flexible flooring types, and is often more expensive in comparison to the laminate parquet. On the flip side, the laminate parqueting are mostly used in Nepali markets. To look at the Laminate wood parquet flooring use ratio in the market, you shall find that more than 90% of the users prefer laminate parquet, the rest go for the wood parqueting. Hardwood from Laurel, Shisau, and Teak wood are used for obtaining the wooden parquet materials. Be it wooden or laminate parquet flooring in Nepal, parquets are getting high attraction due to their easy upkeep, and aesthetic beauty. Flooring is considered one of the best way to make your living space look attractive. Your choice of parqueting might depend upon your own personal wish and preferences, however, false floor, carpets, tiles, marble, parquet, laminate flooring, etc. are some of the best available materials for flooring a house.
When it comes to parqueting, you might be worried about the wooden/laminate parquet cost; the wooden flooring cost in Nepal ranges from Rs. 100 to Rs. 550 per sq. feet. In comparison to this, the laminated flooring cost in Nepal is very reasonable. Most of the suppliers distributing the wooden laminate parquet flooring in Nepal for sale import the laminate parquets mostly from Germany and China. With the change in thickness and quality, the cost of laminate parquet in Nepal ranges somewhere between Rs. 80 to Rs. 160 per sq. feet. In Nepal, most of these laminated parquets are demanded by house makers or corporate. Despite being introduced in Nepali market since more than a couple of decades, laminate wood parquet flooring has started to become popular since few years in Nepal. Despite the market penetration of PVC flooring, Nepalese are still attracted towards the parqueting.
Nepalese customers are seen to be aware and conscious about their health, aesthetic charm of laminate flooring, which has resulted in the increase of wooden laminate parquet company delivering the materials. One of the main reason why Nepalese people are more attracted towards laminate parquet than the wooden parquet is that the laminate parquet lasts longer than the carpets, and are really easy to clean. If you want to go for a branded flooring, it might be more expensive, such as the Balterio Brand for flooring might cost your from Rs. 150 to Rs. 450 sq. feet. Thus, the wooden laminate parquet flooring in Nepal price depends upon which brand of flooring you are using, and of course the type of flooring you are using.
Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics (FRP) comprise a special group of the reinforced plastics made up of by incorporating flexible strands of fibrous glass into a compatible plastics material. This engineering material came into existence in 1942 for the first time. From this modest beginning the FRP family of composites has grown both in number and quality today competing with metals and other materials. Almost all engineering plastics are being used for making composites and a variety of new composites are being developed every year. More then 35000 products are being made out of these composites.
FRP products are used in applications requiring high mechanical strength but, with light weight requirements. Combining fiberglass with plastics increases the materials physical strength, stiffness, impact resistance and dimensional stability, and it also increases its use over wider temperature ranges. The specific gravity of FRP is roughly one-fifth that of steel, and as such, its use covers a wider range of applications when lightweight is important. Depending on the amount of glass reinforcement used and its particular geometry and arrangement in the resin mix, strengths can range from roughly half to several times those of structural steel.
General Advantages of FRP:
- Low electrical conductivity.
- High Strength-to-weight ratio.
- Low thermal conductivity.
- Adequate optical properties.
- Low transportation cost.
- Low installation costs.
- Corrosion resistance.
- Low resistance to flow

JK Wood carving ,Lalitpur tel:9842750785 Anjana Tamrakar is a mfr of quality wood carvings.
Woodcarving in Nepal has been most highly developed in the Kathmandu Valley, which comprises Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur districts. These three are home to the world’s rarest wooden art. Perhaps nowhere else in the world are the carvings as sophisticated, dramatic and extensively incorporated in construction. Even the name, “Kathmandu,” indicates the unique focus of this area. Derived from the Sanskrit word kastamandap, whichis the conjunction of kasta, meaning wood and mandapa, meaning temple or hall, Kathmandu means “temple made of wood.”
At the western edge of Kathmandu’s Durbar Square one finds the structure known as Kastamandap, the oldest surviving timber structure ion the valley, its three tiers of pagoda roof rising fifty feet above a long veranda. The structure dates back 800 years, and legend tells how it was constructed entirely from the trunk of a single sal tree(Shorea robusta). Yet with the extent of wooden temples and iconography throughout Kathmandu and vicinities, a more accurate definition of “Kathmandu” would be “city of temples made of wood.”
Temple pillars, Deity icons and palace portals display the epitome of local carving skill. Apart from these, the predominant use of elaborate woodwork is in doorways and windows of the wealthy, though even common households strive to embellish their structures. Usually, frames of doors and windows are made of hardwood–a painstaking job. Hardwoods are first seasoned for a number of years so that the doors and windows can last for centuries. Frames are primarily carved with floral designs. The doors themselves are usually made of softwood and carved with images of Gods and Goddesses. But wherever the doors are exposed to harsh conditions, they are made of hardwood as well. Some are decorated with the eyes of Buddha. Others have designs of the traditional religious water pot, kalash, fish and flowers, all symbols of good fortune.
Apart from many standard options, the preferred ornamental designs are the lotus window, mesh, chariot, peacock and oriel windows. Windows in Nepal serve a higher function than those of Western architecture. They are not mere inlets for air and light, but are portals of peace and beauty. Sculpted upon them are images of Gods and Goddesses who are expected to protect residents within from evil forces. Certain windows are not even meant for looking through. Their main function is artistic and symbolic. As such, many styles of window do not open. The option to peer out is found mostly in balcony windows, through which modest and reserved women can view the happenings in the city without becoming involved. Such windows are symbols of higher social and economic status of those people.
The Nepalese woodcarving tools are simple and traditional: chisel, adze, handsaw, wooden mallet and jack plane. Craftsmen embellish wood for interior decoration as well as for exterior use. For centuries, a particular caste among the Nepalese Newars, called “Silpakar,” has dutifully preserved the country’s woodcarving heritage. Lately, however, peoples of other castes have joined the occupation. Originally supported and encouraged by the Malla kings, the art is now supported primarily through purchases made by Western tourists.
Patan is known as city of FINE ARTS in the world.
Most Silpakars are still engaged themselves in various aspects of the woodcarving industry. Silpakars are prominent at Jombahal, in Lalitpur, and out of 700 Silpakar families in Bugmati, 300 operate their own woodcarving shops. Om Krishna Silpakar, the owner of Om Wood Carving & Jk wood carving,run by Anjana Tamrakar (9841750785 0),purna wood Carving at Patan are such a family.Wood carving Industries estd in 1967,by Moti Lal silpakar ,at Patan industrial Estate is a pioneer wood carvings exporters in international market who introduce a wood carvings business in Nepal.
Most Silpakars, feels an abiding love of and responsibility to his tradition. “om krishna silpakar proud that I have protected the wood carving industry started by my forefathers,” he said. “I have been able to introduce Nepal to some 40 to 50 countries through the exports of my woodwork. This gives me great satisfaction. During my childhood, I would be thrilled when tourists visited. I still remember fondly when King Tribhuvan and Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru visited our workshop.”
Of late, modern construction has threatened to usurp traditional architecture. Yet the old-style carvings still lure tourists. In an effort to preserve existing ancient works, the Bhaktapur municipality has strictly prohibited the demolition of traditional buildings for replacement with modern ones.
History relates how woodcarving in Nepal developed in Kathmandu Valley largely during the Malla dynasty, which was founded in 1350 by Jayasthiti Malla. The Malla period continued for almost 600 years and was a glorious era in the history of Nepal. Mallas developed trade and commerce, industry, religion and culture. They reached a high level of perfection in the fields of art and architecture. John Sanday in his book Monuments of the Kathmandu Valley writes, “The traditional buildings that are mostly in evidence throughout the valley today represent the craft and architecture of the Malla dynasty, which started in the fourteenth century, survived the early Shah period, but rapidly faded during the Rana era.” The Rana period started in Nepal with the rise of Jang Bahadur Rana in 1846 and the system crumbled down in 1951. One of the reasons why the artistic and architectural activity flourished during the Malla period was that the kings protected such activity. Whatever architecture Nepal has to be proud of today is not from modern construction but solely due to the beautiful art cultivated by the Malla regime.
Today, things are not all favorable for the Nepalese craftsmen. Woodcarvers have their own challenges to overcome. Ramlal Silpakar complains, “The depletion of forests has created a shortage of sal trees, which take at least a hundred years to mature in the forest. It is not within the means of many of the craftsmen to afford the skyrocketing prices of sal wood.” Sita Maiya adds, “Lack of incentive from the side of the state is also a serious problem. In the past, the carving industry prospered because of protection from the state. But now, who cares for the industry?” Ram Bahadur, who has been in carving for generations, states, “We have to stand and make a living on our own. Prospects for training are limited. Many craftsmen families who used to carve wonders have abandoned their craft.” And Shyam Sakya, a prominent woodcarvings businessman says that the domestic market has been whittled down to just the affluent.
A unique success in wood arts is the Hotel Dwarikas, which is the lifetime achievement of late Dwarika Das Shrestha. The hotel is the manifestation of his effort to restore and preserve a culture and a heritage. Shrestha rescued ancient carvings from demolition sites and commissioned new works from local craftsmen, all of which are maintained and displayed in the hotel, which he created to be a “living museum.” Dwarikas (www.dwarikas.com) is now dynamically managed by Shrestha’s wife, Ambica,

The leakage of water rising dampness are the usual problems faced by the construction professional. Under these circumstances, water proofing, i.e. make the structure free from unwanted moisture attack becomes a necessity. Depending upon the nature, location, type and shape, and importance of the structure the procedure and the type of water proofing system should be chosen. The choice of correct and appropriate type of water proofing system is an important and critical situation of the waterproofing job. Failure in choosing the correct and appropriate type of water proofing system will result in an unsound, not durable water proofing treatment.Chose who provide free technical full support.
Now-a-days a variety of cold applied waterproofing chemicals are available in the market. Due to its ease and faster application, monolithic coating without any joints, long service life, and elastic in nature, these types of water proofing system are getting popular all over the world. Usually, these chemicals are made from single or two components are based on variety of chemicals such as polymers, acrylic emulsions in water and others.
These are elastomeric materials and can be applied by trowel, brush or sprayed by the machines. The applied chemical will form a film that acts as a waterproofing barrier to the structure. Due to its chemical composition, this film will develop very strong bond with the applied surface. Water proofing by crystallization system is also developed in this context to fill the micro-pores in concrete structure.
Usually, these types of water proofing material are based on silicon resin and long chain fatty acid. Due to its transparent nature, it has little or no effect on the appearance of the structure and because of its good penetration ability; the pores in the structure are lined with strongly water repellant resin. Since there is a high interfacial tension between water and silicon resin, water will not easily enter into them. Such types of treatment are done on exposed brick surface of the building, façade stones, plasters, gypsum boards etc which keeps building always fresh looking.

“The demand for aluminium doors and windows has increased by 100 per cent after the earthquake,” said Madan Manandhar, Managing Director at Nu-Tech Pvt Ltd. “Earlier demand was from urban areas only. But now the demand is spreaded in rural areas too after the earthquake,” he added.
Aluminum windows and doors are made in wide variety of colour, styles and designs. Windows are available in sliding, casement, structural lazing, bay and arch models while doors can be either swing, hinge, sliding or bi-folding. In the market, one can get Chinese aluminium that costs from Rs 300 to Rs 800 per sq ft depending upon quality and thickness of less than 1mm to 3mm.
“Less than 1mm thickness is not suitable for construction purpose. However, there are many traders selling less than 1mm thick-ness products at low prices,” said Manandhar. Citing that there is unhealthy competition among players, he said, “As people these days are more price sensitive than quality, traders import low grade aluminium which bends, gets smashed and comes with feeble locks.”
For aluminium windows and doors, plain glass is preferred instead of black ones. According to him, 90 per cent of customers buy aluminium for doors and windows while 10 per cent for partitioning purposes. Reportedly, business houses prefer structural glazed windows and swing doors, whereas sliding windows and hinge doors are more popular for residencies.
“Previously wood was the first choice for doors and windows. Owing to high cost, the use of wood is fast depleting and people have shifted to aluminium,” informed Anu Rajbanshi, Sales and Marketing Manager at Skylight, which imports Technal products from France and Thai products from Thailand. She said that their products are preferred for both residential as well as commercial buildings.
According to her, Skylight assures its product to be light, tough, weatherproof, dust proof, corrosion resistant and with a high strength to weight ratio. She informed that they have a wide range of products to match customers’ choice. She said, “Unlike wooden windows and doors, aluminium does not fade, matches with style and design of building, requires less maintenance and paint jobs.”
The price of Thai aluminium is between Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,500 per sq ft while it costs Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,500 per sq ft for Technal products. “Our products are costlier than other Chinese products but is worth it for quality, durability and design,” she said, adding that they provide good after sales service. Skylight has aluminium of 1.5mm to 3mm thickness.
“The demand for aluminium is increasing in the market,” said Amir Thapa, Proprietor at Royal Construction Sewa, adding, “Unhealthy competition has become a big challenge to the business.” He said that due to unhealthy competition, the rate of products vary from trader to trader. Citing that they trade Chinese products, he said, “More than 70 per cent of the market is enjoyed by Chinese products while the rest is from Thailand, India, France and other countries.” According to him, installation of aluminium doors and windows are hassle free and can be completed in a short period of time depending upon project

फूल–बिरुवा र आकर्षक बगैंचाको रहर सबैलाई हुन्छ । तर, बिरुवा उमार्ने, त्यसका लागि गर्नुपर्ने नियमित स्याहारको झन्झटले धेरैजनाका लागि यो रहरमै सीमित हुन्छ । कतिपयलाई व्यस्तताका कारण बगैंचाका लागि फूल–बिरुवा तयार गर्ने समय नै उपलब्ध हुँदैन ।
यस्तो प्रतिकूलतालाई सम्बोधन गर्ने गरी २ महिनाअघिबाट तयारी बगैंचाको विकल्प लिएर आएको छ, यूजी इन्टरप्राइजेज । विदेशमा अभ्यस्त बनिसकेको यस्तो गार्डेनिङ सेवा नेपालमा भने पहिलो हो ।
५ जना युवाको समूहले सुरु गरेको बगैंचा सजाउन सघाउने यो पृथक् अवधारणाको सेवालाई उनीहरुले ‘आई एम द गार्डेनर’ स्लोगनमा पस्किरहेका छन् । यसले ग्राहकलाई तत्कालै आफ्नो बगैंचा तयार गर्न सकिने किसिमले विभिन्न किसिमका तयारी फूल–बिरुवा उपलब्ध गराउँछ ।
गार्डेनिङ गर्न चाहने तर समयको अभावका कारण यसलाई रेखदेख गर्न नपाउने व्यक्तिहरुलाई यो अत्यन्तै सहज र सुलभ उपाय हुन सक्छ । घर, रेस्टुरेन्ट, होटल, पार्टी, सेमिनारलगायतका ठाउँमा छिटो तथा छोटो समयमा फूल–बिरुवा सजाउन यो एकदमै प्रभावकारी हुनेछ ।
यूजीले फक्रिसकेको फूल तथा बिरुवालाई गमलामा सजाएर तयारी अवस्थामा विक्री गर्दछ । सामान्यतया बगैंचा सजाउनका लागि नर्सरीबाट प्लाष्टिक (पोली)मा उमारेका बिरुवा लगेर सार्ने गरिन्छ । तर, ‘आई एम द गार्डेनर’ले हुर्किसकेका वा पूर्ण रुपमा फूल फुलिसकेको बिरुवालाई गमलासहित तयारी अवस्थामा उपलब्ध गराउने हुँदा त्यसलाई घर लगेर सीधै सजाउन सकिन्छ । बिरुवा सारेर त्यसलाई नियमित हेरविचार गर्नुपर्ने तथा गमलाको सरसफाइ र रङरोगन गरिरहनुपर्ने झन्झट यसमा बेहोर्नु नपर्ने यूजीका मार्केटिङ डाइरेक्टर केवल रिसालले बताए । ‘प्लाष्टिकको गमला प्रयोग गरिएकाले यसको सरसफाइमा धेरै समय खर्चिनुपर्दैन,’ उनले भने, ‘साथै यो आकर्षक पनि देखिने भएकाले ग्राहकको रुचिलाई ध्यानमा राख्दै हामीले प्लाष्टिककै गमला प्रयोग गरेका छौं ।’
प्लाष्टिकबाट वातावरणमा पर्न सक्ने असरबारे सजग हुँदै यूजीले रिसाइकल गर्न (पुनः उपयोगमा ल्याउन) मिल्ने किसिमको यूपीभीसी मेटेरियलबाट बनेका गमला मात्र प्रयोग गर्ने गरेको बताएको छ । गमलामा ७० प्रतिशत मल र माटो ३० प्रतिशत मात्र हाल्ने गरिएको रिसालको भनाइ छ । यसले गर्दा फूल–बिरुवासहितको गमला हलुका हुने हुँदा यता–उता सार्नुपर्दा पनि सजिलो हुन्छ । यसरी पहिले नै गमालामा पर्याप्त मल हालेर हुर्काइएको फूल राखिने हुँदा घर लगेर फेरि माटो तथा मलको व्यवस्था गर्नुपर्ने झन्झट हुने छैन ।
यूजीले विभिन्न जातका फूल, इनडोर÷आउटडोर प्लान्ट, मौसमी बिरुवालगायत तयारी अवस्थामा उपलब्ध गराउने गरेको छ । यसमध्ये केही सेलाजिनेला, साइक्लामेन, गुलाब, गोदावरी, सयपत्री, धुपी, सूर्यमुखी केही हुन् । साना तथा ठूला आकारमा, ह्याङ्गिङ आदि लगायतका सबै प्रकारका गमला र फूल उपलब्ध गराउने जानकारी दिएको छ । गमला आवश्यक नहुनेले फूल÷बिरुवा मात्र पनि लिन सक्नेछन् ।
गमलासहित लिँदा पनि फूल-बिरुवाको मूल्य बजार भाउसँग प्रतिस्पर्धी नै रहेको रिसालले जानकारी दिए । साथै, आफूसँग नभएको फूल पनि ग्राहकले अर्डर गरे उपलब्ध गराइदिने उनले बताएका छन् ।
यूजीले बिक्रीका लागि तयार गर्ने फूल-बिरुवाहरु अहिले मण्डिखाटारस्थित खड्का नर्सरीबाट उत्पादन गरेर ल्याउने गरेको छ । उक्त नर्सरी यूजीका सह–प्रवद्र्धकमध्येका एकको पारिवारिक व्यवसाय पनि हो । यसका साथै, निकट भविष्यमै यूजीले व्यावसायिक फूल खेतीका लागि विश्वमै चर्चित मुलुक नेदरल्याण्डलबाट पनि फूल÷बिरुवा आयातको तयारी गरेको बताएको छ । रिसालले भने, ‘नेदरल्याण्डलगायतका देशबाट पनि ल्याउन अर्डर गरिसकेका छौं ।’ गमला भने यसले अहिले भारत र चीनबाट आयात गरिरहेको छ ।
फूल तथा गमलाको आकार-प्रकारअनुरुप २५ रुपैयाँदेखि २५०० सम्मका बिरुवा यूजीको धुम्बाराहीस्थित ‘आई एम द गार्डेनर’ आउटलेटमा उपलब्ध छन् । यसले ग्राहकलाई खरिद गरेको फूल-बिरुवाको स्याहार–सुसार गर्ने तरिकाबारे पनि आवश्यक सम्पूर्ण जानकारी दिने गरेको छ । जसले गर्दा पछि पनि बिरुवालाई उचित हेरविचार गर्न मद्दत मिल्नेछ ।
