    Red face a window into copper-clad openings?

    Hi, I have some wood-framed copper-clad dormers. The copper is either 8 or 16 oz. copper. Currently there is no window in the window-holes. Here is a picture: http://rmihaly.home.mindspring.com/d...er-windows.jpg I thought maybe I should just order some sealed, double-paned glass panels with which I'd fill the holes. Then I'd screw in molding to hold the sealed windows in place and put gobs and gobs silicon (or some kinda roof tar?) to waterproof. Do you have better advice for me?

    All I can say is ***!
    I believe I would have some heavy copper angle made and copper nail it around the inside of the opening to act as a stop. Put a bead of silicone caulk around the inside and press the panels against it then install a wooden stop on the inside to hold it in place. Bullseye glass or a leaded glass panel would look great.
