Default Metal Shop?

Can anyone recommend a metal shop. I am looking to buy a metal mesh screen 18G 3/4" 26"X38" to cover a window where I would like more security.

I also plan to buy some slider parts and piping in future for my 40 so I wouldn't mind wandering around to get some perspective on the options I have.

Thanks, Justin

My favorite is Altitude steel as they have a HUGE scrap section that is sold by the pound. I have yet to find what I needed in that pile.

Here is where I go because it is close, they have a scrap yard that you can buy metal by ‎the pound. They get overstock and out dated metal that you can pic up really cheep, the selection on new metal is not as good as others mentioned but again they are close for me. Worth a call..

C & M Iron & Metal Co
2390 West Hampden Avenue, Englewood, CO 80110
(303) 761-7881

Good luck!!

So they have a HUGE selection, but you still can't find what you need? Is the selection not that great, you just have some strange needs, or you meant to say they always have what you need? I've heard of Altitude, but never been by there. I always go to K&K (convenient to me), but they are hit and miss as to what kind of scrap they have.
