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.

Mueller's U Panel is made of 26-gauge commercial grade steel, which is heavier than the 29-gauge material that's commonly used on metal roofs. Many times, you can install the panels directly onto an existing shingle roof, which can save time, labor and disposal costs. These panels are also available in lots of great colors.
