Armstrong Steel Helps Colorado Ranch Get Horses Ready For Winter

If horses could talk, they’d be thanking their owners profusely.

Salida, Colorado gets about 43 inches of snowfall each winter, and that was one of the biggest motivations for Will and Nancy K. to look for a steel building that could hold up to that type of seasonal precipitation in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Armstrong Steel loves engaging with Colorado customers, as Colorado is the proud home of Armstrong’s corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility.

Will & Nancy’s metal barn boasts Arcadian slider doors, a lean-to, skylights, and Armstrong’s commercial insulation package. Traditionally, barns were made out of wood, but the Kay’s opted to go with steel because of the benefits, like enhanced durability, energy efficiency and ease of assembly. Steel is the perfect choice for building a barn because it is the most cost effective. Plus, a steel building requires undemanding maintenance, has a higher resistance to the elements, and it’s easy to customize and expand.


Initially, Will and Nancy were concerned about insulating the barn for the sake of their horses. Salida, Colorado is also one of the top U.S. cities in terms of largest differences between daily temperature highs and lows. The couple wanted to make sure that everything in the barn would be sheltered from the severe weather, too.

Insulating your building can be expensive if you do it on your own, but Armstrong’s commercial insulation packages are designed specifically for a metal building. Armstrong Steel offers reasonably priced insulation packages, along with a myriad of other additions, which can be added to any building. Every Armstrong steel building is unique and customized especially for you, and a dedicated Project Manager can take steps to ensure you get what you need, without breaking the bank.

“We are so impressed with how sturdy our Armstrong building is! The shipping department was a pleasure to work with and always answered the phone when we called with a question. We're really glad we didn't cut corners and went with Armstrong's commercial insulation package as it is staying quite warm in our building as temperatures begin to drop here in Salida," says Will K.


"If there’s one thing we do better than our peers in the pre-engineered steel construction industry, it's hyper focus on the customer experience. It’s our job to ensure every aspect of a customer's purchase goes as smoothly as possible," says Ethan Chumley, Founder and CEO of Armstrong Steel.

Armstrong Steel offers building solutions for every need, large or small. Armstrong's quality is incomparable, making it an easy choice when it comes to your building needs.

Your horses are sure to show their appreciation, too.
