Painting in Vasundhara, Ghaziabad: Payment Security to Customer & Contractor

In Last Blog, we have shared how professional painting work was awarded to lowest price and best rated painting contractor in Vasundhara, Vaishali, Indrapuram and Noida who competed equally on technical and execution parameters with other painters for work at Vasundhara.

In this blog, we will share the condition of blog and how played a role of catalyst in payment security. Before starting of work on Day 0, the condition of flat looked terrible because it has remained vacant for a long duration. It is a general scenario of a flat or house which needs painting as part of its maintenance in every 3-5 years. We recorded the conditions of flat before painting in following three areas which were critical and published their progress timeline on blog:

1. Surface Damaged:

Wall Paint damaged upto the level of plaster
Wall Paint damaged upto the level of plaster

2. Construction Damaged:

3. Exposed Brickwork:

A duration of 15 days is fixed for completion and handover of the works. Now there is a situation where painter is asking for advance to start the work and customer was fearful that how can he pay money to an unknown painter. Our Manager realized the confusion and clarified to customer that he is going to pay 30% advance to while is going to release payment in parts to the contractor. A comfort expression has came on the face of customer when he sensed the unrealized benefit of including a third party like in execution of works.

It was also a benefit to the painter who felt confident that has received 30% of payment so he will get paid eventually upto that limit. The confidence & trust encouraged him to procure material upon confirmation of receipt of payment by e-Ghar automated systems. The worked kicked off without actually paying anything to contractor. Though later in day, manager visited the premise and paid part advance to the contractor which was actually a payment for the procured material and engaged manpower.

In this way, at Day 0 worked kicked off in secure environment to customer and painter. Next we have continued story with timeline of works in critical areas and surprise quality checks at site.

Painting in Vasundhara, Ghaziabad

T. N. Kakaji (TNK) stays in Cannaught Place, Delhi and owned a flat in Rail Kunj, Sector-3, Vasundhara, Ghaziabad. He planned to re-paint his flat before leasing it to new tenants. In second week of April-2016, he communicated with us and realized our venture which facilitates the home construction & maintenance in Vasundhara, Vaishali, Indrapuram and Noida. He raised painting query on our Mobile Website for his flat and our customer care assigned a personalized manager Mr. Antriksh to him who collected his requirements. Against the requirements, three painters Mr. Lal Bahadur, Mr. Rohtas and Mr. Salim quoted for the work. We brought the quotation to the comparative level in terms of price, terms & condition, technical specification and product quality for all contractors. A screenshot of same is shown below which got mailed to TNK.

Alongwith comparative we shared that is adding value with its expert advisory in construction & app based technological platform. Customers are free to engage any other contractor as part of negotiation and we bring him on same comparative platform. Currently, this feature is free of cost but team e-Ghar charges 10% for supervision of work in case external contractor is engaged.

In this project, TNK understood the concept and asked us to continue with registered contractors with anthor round of negotiation. In late April-16, the comparative was finalized and Mr. Lal Bahadur suited him best against the requirements. Formally, painting works kicked off on 7th May 2016 in presence of e-ghar Manager, Contractor, Customer and Prospective tenant at flat. TNK appreciated the amount of clarity they had with their contractor and kicked the project on same day with lowest price contractor. He has saved more than 20% using the service of

Tenants asked some additional wooden work and TNK has no problem because he knows mobile application of e-Ghar. com this time. He just raised another woodwork query and waited for comparative. TNK feels that awarding of work is very professional with but his next worry is execution process and quality of material contractor is going to engage.

We felt problems of TNK as general challenges of flat owners and household owners so decided to publish a story in this line which should be helpful to all those who wants to paint. And that painting can either be in vasundhara or painting in vaishali or painting in indirapuram or painting in Noida.

So, Please refer our upcoming blogs to know how painting was performed and quality is ensured after work has been awarded from Day 0 with e-Ghar to it completion.

Home Maintenance Budget: a mystery

It remained a challenge for common man to understand that how much spending should be a part of maintenance or we can say Maintaining a budget is probably the hardest thing for a person to do.

There are no standard ways of defining budget for maintenance of home but we have broadly divide home maintenance in 4 categories:

1. Minor Home Repairs:

Home is complete with combination ranging from small appliances to large utilities which comprises of plumbing works, electrical works, carpentry works and other small nail fixing tasks. It can get extended to repair of home appliances. The average repair cost of such issues is Rs. 1000 which incurs 2-3 times in a year.

2. Home Renovation Works:

As we continue to stay in our dream home it needs some maintenance which we call renovation and can be comprised of  painting works, wooden works, tile works, interior works and others. Such works are major jobs and can take from 1 week to 1 year depending upon our change. Such major works cost ranging from thousand rupees to lakh rupees and incur once in 5-10 years.

3. Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMC):

Though there are lot of annual maintenance products available in the market but few services like cleaning and pest control are best for such category. We may slip these recurring services but having an AMC plan keep our home space maintained. Such plans comes from Rs. 2000 to Rs. 10000 on annual basis

4. Home Experts Review:

Change has remained an important part of human life which forces us to change the way our home looks. We ourselves try to change the interior but having an expert opinion is always worth. We can have interior experts opinions, home auditors for evaluating our home conditions. Such services are based on self interest and does not carry any frequency. These experts cost Rs. 1000 to Rs. 10000 depending upon the advice and their role can be extended if required.

A general thumb rule of construction industry is 1% should be annual maintenance cost of maintaining home (i.e. Rs. 40000 for a home worth Rs. 40 Lakh which includes minor repair, major repair and AMCs). In other words, we will need to spend more if we are maintaining more square feet area in much better locality.

The factors which actually makes the biggest impact in the cost of our maintenance and repairs are: AGE, CONDITION, WEATHER, LOCATION & THE TYPE OF PROPERTY WE OWN.House made of tools over white background


We should make a note of fact that we try to negotiate for Rs 50-Rs 200 with handyman (Carpenter,plumber,electrician) but actual maintenance expenses lies with the major job repair. Such small repair should not bother ourselves mentally much because if we keep our home maintained on regular basis it will make our living happier throughout the years.



  • Marble flooring is easily one of the most beautiful of all flooring options. Used in homes as well as public buildings and offices, the use of this type of stone floor provides a number of advantages in addition to the beauty (like the advantages provided by E-GHAR). Here are a few of the reasons why considering the installation of marble flooring may be ideal for your needs. While it is true that marble flooring can be very expensive to purchase and install, marble tile is extremely durable and will last for much longer than many other less expensive types of floor tile.
  • When the replacement cost associated with other flooring types is considered, the cost of installing and maintaining marble flooring quickly snaps into perspective. A good marble tile floor will easily last anywhere from two to five times longer than other flooring options (only after efficient marble polishing). Along with the durability, marble flooring comes in a number of options in colour and design. It is unusual for a flooring company to offer less than a half dozen different patterns, styles, and colour schemes for customers to consider. This broad range of colours and style options makes the use of marble floors practical for many different types of room designs.


  • Marble flooring will be of no use if there is no efficient marble polishing. Marble is like gold, it is of no use without efficient professionals who bring out the glow in work with their efforts. People want to show off their home and show that they have spent money on the marble, but it would not be effective unless they put a magic effect of marble polishing into it. The marble starts to getting dull after some time and needs to get polished. Marble polishers charge an excessive amount from the customers for marble polishing and take advantage of the monopoly. They use only the machine at 1 number pad or 2 number pad, but for making a marble glow pad used to be of minimum 3 number should be used to polish a marble effectively. People get their polishing done once, but due to regular usage it get scratches and it has to be polished again occasionally.


  • It is necessary in few things that people have to incur more expenses on managing a thing than buying it. Still, if a thing is done perfectly once, it can be postponed for a long time. That’s why E-GHAR comes up with best trained and experienced marble polishers who come to your service on just a miss call 98892-24365. So it’s time for you to decide and move on from old thinking and come on with E-GHAR to make your house sparkle in the front of persons you love.

 Thank you.

Deep Cleaning of Skin with e-GHARelu tips

We have been taking a lot about home improvement & repairs but this time we take liberty of e-Gyan to share few tips for better personal health which means better skin with quick e-GHARelu knowledge. 

Taking good care of our skin during this season can be a daunting task as if the scorching sun is not enough, the constantly rising pollution level in the air making things more difficult. Too much exposure to sun may damage our skin and may leads to its premature ageing , wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time. We also suffer from the problems like prickly heat, acne, sunburn, tanning etc during summers. In summers specially, we need to take care of our skin in order to have a radiant complexion but sometimes we neglect some of the essential habits. As a result, our skin starts looking dull and we face low confidence because we try to hide our blemishes, tanning, marks etc by avoiding interacting with people but if we are working we can’t. So we actually need to put some efforts to make our skin the way it is. Let us divide care in three categories:

A) Daily Personal Care

B) Inclusions in Diet

C) Homemade Skin Improvement Products


Here are some key areas of personal care which needs attention to protect skin :

  1. Specific care for each skin type
  2. Pay special attention to fragile areas
  3. Gentle cleansing
  4. Moisturizing  is important
  5. Preferably hypoallergenic make up
  6. Sun protection
  7. Don’t neglect lips


Apart from skin care we should focus on few diet inclusions which can bring substantial results to Skin Improvement:

  • One should drink a lot of water to keep skin healthy and hydrated. Approximately seven to eight glasses of water everyday.
  • Its advisable to eat citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables as they prevent hyper pigmentation and protects skin from sun.
  • Try to avoid oily food in summers.
  • The wonder food which helps in getting glowing skin includes lemon, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, amla, apple.

healthy   OILY

Taking Care of our skin and eating right is equally important.


Instead of going for expensive beauty products we can use homemade products which suits our skin in summers:

  • Cooling Cleanser For Normal to Dry Skin: Mix milk with cucumber juice.Soak cotton wool in it and wipe face with it.
  • Cooling Cleanser For Oily/Combination Skin: Mix lemon and cucumber juice in equal quantities.Soak cotton wool in it and wipe face with it.


  • Cleansing Papaya Mask For All Skin Types: Papaya pulp can be applied on the skin like a mask,washing it off after 20 minutes.It also removes tan.Add curd or lemon juice to pulp and apply.
  • For Oily Skin: Take one tablespoon lemon juice and one tablespoon rose water .Add crushed mint leaves and let it stand for one hours.Strain leaves and apply the liquid on the face.Wash off after 20 minutes .Removes oils,cools and protects.

House Cleaning Vs Healthy Life




1. Exchange Indoor Air- We can create natural cross ventilation by opening the windows and doors time to time or run any installed exhaust fan.

2. Minimize dirt-Remove old newspapers and magazines as they attract a lot of dust so we must keep these items outside our bedrooms or store them in plastic bags so they won’t make our house dusty.

3. Keep bedroom clean-Bedroom is one of the most important room to keep clean.Therefore we need to  take care of washing our bed linen,duvets ,decorative pillows once a week .Don’t allow  pets in bedrooms especially if they spend time outdoor.

4. Use gentle cleaning products- Avoid products containing ammonia,chlorine or petroleum based chemicals. Better to opt for easy to use natural alternatives which can safely be used in place of commercial household products.

5. Clean from the TOP DOWN- Clean windows,shelves first and then work downwards on regular basis.

6.Take off dirty shoes at the door-So that,we can keep the dust produced by these items to one area,which we can clean frequently.

7.Dusting and vacuuming – Few minutes of dusting or vacuuming  atleast  2-3 times a week will save us from the deep cleaning on the weekend when we can relax.

Apart from regular cleaning also prefer professional cleaning once in a year in which E-GHAR can assist you just on a miss call 9289224352

GOLD  JEWELLERY remained an attractive asset among females from a long time. Sometime, Its shine overshadows our budget and we end up buying beautiful ornaments of our life. In past gold has always remained an appreciating asset but its look can drastically depreciate if we carry it on daily basis. During daily chores, it can get dirty from oil in the skin, body lotions, perfumes and makeup. Beautiful Gold Ornaments can regain their shine with a few simple steps which removes dirt & oil:-

1) Primarily cleaning of gold ornament by any of following measures:


a) TOOTHPASTE CLEANING: Take a small amount  of toothpaste into a bowl and mix with one or two tablespoon of water to make a light paste. Opt for toothpaste that does not have a lot of abrasive qualities.


b) DISH WASHING DETERGENT: Add small amount of mild Dish-washing detergent to a small bowl filled with warm water (not hot or boiling water). Soak jewellery in the solution for 15 minutes.

baking soda

c) BAKING SODA: Make a paste of one part water and three parts of baking soda .

2) Gently scrub with soft bristle of toothbrush to clean your gold pieces.

3) Rinse each piece with water and dry the piece with soft cotton cloth.

Cleaning of Jewellery can regain its shine but it is always preferred to take care of following notes for better conditioning of our ornaments

  • Store gold jewellery away from other metal jewellery to avoid scratches.
  • Remove gold jewellery before bathing as the soap will dull the gold surface.
  • Remove gold jewellery before swimming  as chlorine will discolor the gold.

Natural cooling in Summers


With Green House Effect, temperature of earth is rising year by year but still few of our small steps can bring effective cooling to our home without any expenditure over air conditioning. Here are some quick tips which brings down few degrees of temperature and makes home, a natural coolest place:-

  • Close the windows and the blinds as soon as the sun hits your house and you can open them in evening after drop down of external temperature because heat transfer becomes more direct and temperature rises.
  • Manage your appliances i.e turn off your lamps and computers when you are not using them because they emits heat.
  • Avoid using too much water during the hot hours of the day as the temperature of the water in the overhead tank rises and produces steam when let out which creates humidity in your house.
  • Use smooth white linen to cover your beds and upholstery so that they reflect the heat instead of absorbing it.
  • Paint your roof white because it is not a good absorbent instead it is a good emitter.
