Where can I buy cheap Aluminum Windows for Shed?


Does anyone know where to buy small aluminum windows for a shed?

HD and Lowes does not sell them. All they have is vinyl and they are expensive.

Does it have to be aluminum? Vinyl might do just as well and be easier to find.

Habitat ReStore is a great idea although they tend to toss things not useable. Does your community post demolition permits as public notices in the paper? You might be able to rescue something from a place coming down.

I volunteered on demo teams for an organization that rescued architectural details and so forth from houses and old buildings coming down. If we knew ahead of time we would have saved a couple of appropriate windows for you in return for a $5-10 donated to a worthy cause.

You might call one of the window companies (or bribe a worker if you see a truck in your hood) to see what they do with windows they remove. I suspect they either landfill them directly or ship them off to somebody that pulls the glass and recycles the frames?
