Depending on your intended use, a thicker panel is not always better. A 24-gauge material is thick but must be softer than 26-gauge to be rolled into sheets and trim. Additionally, thicker material will cost more and may not be the best value for what you need. While both can be used on roofs, the majority of what we sell is 26-gauge which offers a great combination of thickness and hardness factors. We also offer our SSP panels in 29-gauge for less demanding applications and budget-driven projects.

We manufacture tremendous value into every one of our AP Panel roofs, which offer the look of standing-seam roofs at a lower cost. You get big benefits like extra durability, a gorgeous appearance and potential savings on energy bills and homeowner’s insurance. AP Panels are a smart idea for new construction and applications where the existing roof covering is removed to decking. They're designed with residential roofs in mind, but work very well on commercial buildings, too.
