Vastu for Balcony | Veranda (Verandah) | Portico | Upstairs | Lanai | SubhaVaastu.com:

This link has information about Vastu for Balcony and Vastu for Portico

Vastu for BalconyWhat is Balcony: It means A level of platform enclosed by the wall or balustrade on the outside building, it is accessible from top or upper floor door or window, generally these balconies are open, if its closed with any shed or sheets or covered with roof etc then it is called Lanai. In other words Balcony means a Protruded portion from the building which is accessible from the door and generally it has the railing. It can be constructed in any direction, the floor level of the balcony counts here. In other words, there is option to walk on this Balconies in general, but o the same way we may not walk on Portico. This would be the common difference of Balcony and Portico.

Vastu for PorticoWhat is Portico: A Portico is nothing but Porch, which is at the entrance of the house or a building, in other words it is an extended part of the same roof as a colonnade, the roof structure has a walkway and it has support by columns or otherwise enclosed by the walls. Another definition is spaced columns which are regularly series wise supported the entablature and which is only one side of the roof. In some areas it is called as cornice or Frieze, an continuous horizontal lintel on a building which are supported by columns or a wall comprising the architrave, another statement is an extending floor out of the plinth area which is accessible from first floor. In general we may not walk on portico or Porch, but on the same way we may walk on the balcony, this is the difference of both Portico and Balcony.

Vastu for PatioWhat is Patio: Generally Patio means a paved area adjoined with the main home for any of recreation purpose or dining purpose. These patios are created with bricks, cobbles or tiles, in some areas it is created with concrete or stone slabs. Some residences has outdoor patios or patio at terrace. Some residents arranged canopy to this patio section. In some areas the patio may be planned with only wooden. But these may not be called as patio, for residents easy calling they may put name as Patio. Most of the cases the patio is made with concrete stone slabs or with bricks. If the home is West facing or South facing then residents should not plan the patio at Northeast corner. Except Northeast corner they may plan it at Northwest after leaving some space at West and North, more near to the home and distance towards North boundary. For South facing homes residents may plan this Patio at Southeast, it needs some open space towards South and more open space towards East, i.e., this patio should be near to the Home and has distance to the East boundary wall. For any direction homes the Patio should not come at Northeast corner, if it was built with concrete stone slabs. In USA most of the suburb areas has this patio and very commonly used for most of the homes in cities too. In UK also some homes has Patio, in Australia rich homes maintaining patios.

Now observe the below Balcony, which is very common word used in India. One may observe the Balcony in the below images, which are very common in India. Generally in India majority people are used to say it as Balcony, the original meaning may be different but the common usage of the word which is used in a Nation, that we are discussing here.

But if a balcony is constructed in the South direction then it is essential in North and if a balcony is constructed in the West direction then it is essential in East direction. Balconies are as important to the house as the open areas in the East and North. Sky scrapers, apartments are mushrooming in this jet speed age. Thousands and lacks of families live in the apartments; it is need to the residents to have open spaces in balconies in the East and North. In this back ground many people construct balconies at their whim and pleasure by cutting them and extending them. But cutting in a haphazard manner results in defective vastu which brings in bad luck.

( Portico or Porch | verandah / Lanai / verrandah or Vasaara )

To be frank balconies should not have truncated or cut. But it should not be cut at any part at the East, North, and Northeast sides. North and East balconies are wider than the West and South balconies, then only the building will have more open space at North and East sides. The following are the house models with portico, the light green colour is house and the thick color is portico, red mark "X"represents wrong, and the green mark represents correct.

This may be belongs to this page or not, but we seen many portico's damaged in most of the homes because of the lack of concentration and maintenance problems, please note that most of the portico's damaged due to cloudburst suddenly. So better to observe the water outlet whole is good to receive the water or not, kindly observe is there any thing was obstructed for this water outlet, if so clean and clear everything on war foot basis, otherwise in future residents has to pay hugely.

Please note that some of the images may not be perfectly integrated with Mobile viewing, so best to check these images at desktop compute or laptops. Thank you.

Some Tips / Hints :

The Northeast balcony should not cut or depressed at any cost.

Both North and East balcony is excellent.

Both South and West balcony property curse the residents.

Balcony slanting towards East brings good name and fame

Balcony slanting towards North brings prosperity, good health.

Now a days the balconies are done with plastic sheets, this is not a problem, you may continue with them.

Most standard and good look attracts and brings positive powers.

Northeast portico brings all good things, good luck.

Northwest portico creates many new headaches to the inhabitants. Point is that whether it is slanting down or up, based on that also results will be contrasting.

Southeast portico creates few challenges to the residents. Point is that whether is it slanting down or up, based on that also results will be divergent.

Southwest Portico is not auspicious one. Point is that whether is it slanting down or up, based on that also results will be contrasting.

Portico is different and Balcony is different. Portico is nothing but protruded portion of a property in certain area. Balcony is nothing but extension of the slab whether it may be the slanting or same floor level.

Testimonials from respected residents:

Dear Suresh, I am pleased to inform you that like the way you provided consultation for my home and explained to me all the changes required inside and outside home. I really appreciate the diagrams that you prepared for my home with pictures and arrows showing the changes need to be done. Above all, you explained very well the reasons behind changes you recommended for my home with great clarity and sense of humor. No doubt in my mind, you are the best Vastu expert, I really appreciate your dedication by building and maintaining a very informative website that is helping thousands of people across the globe. Also, I sensed when I talk to you and when I was dealing with you, you follow honesty and integrity and you have a sincere desire to help others - Kotesware Rao - Dallas - USA

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA

The website Subhavaastu.com is very informative. Sureshji, the founder of this website is according to me a great ¨human who has vast knowledge in this subject and his kindness to his clients are appreciated. He listens to his clients problems patiently and gives the appropriate remedies. His main motto is good service and he responses as quick as possible. I spoke to Sureshji as a stranger only, but after one phone call itself , I started feeling that he is a caring well wisher for whoever asks his help. He is a genuine person. He doesn't force you to spend money in the name of this science, he explains clearly where the problem is and tries to give very easy changes to have a peaceful life. Sathya Priya - Switzerland

I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
