 Windows for an existing metal building

Hello all,

I recently acquired an 1800 sq. foot metal building in Southern Colorado zip code 81055. I am looking for a contractor/company who can install some windows along one side of the building. I have included pics of the my building along with a pics showing what I have in mind window wise. Any advice/information would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Dane

I have no idea you will have a contractor find your request here.

I assume the windows in the building you have placed there as what you want. You are in Colorado which could take this suggestion away, here I would want a way to have air movement through the building. If that means fans, or window(s) that open. Second installing the windows does make the building more inviting for theft. They are able to see in as to what is in there. Also may give them better way to break in. If you are only wanting to let light in you may wish to install higher.

As to who to install the windows I would first reach out to the company who built the building. kt

IF your metal building supplier does not have them. Try Heritage Metal building co. They have provided windows and doors to me for some of my buildings.

They are really easy to install using self tapping screws and caulking.
