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.

PBU panels offer the same look and coverage as U Panel, but includes an extra "leg" on one side of the sheet. The PB stands for purlin bearing, and is designed to go against the purlin or substrate with the lapping rib going over the top. This aids in installation in holding the sheet stable as screws are applied. Note: the side with the extra rib must go under the lapping side.
