A 26 gauge panel is thicker than a 29 gauge panel. For most applications the 29 gauge panel is adequate and is by far the most widely used panel for residential and agricultural use.
If the building is enclosed, we recommend using a double bubble wrap to help prevent condensation that can occur when there is a difference in temperature between the two sides of a metal panel. If the building is going to be heated or cooled, we recommend installing fiberglass insulation or foam insulation. These two options have a significant R-value and will help maintain a constant temperature in the building by impeding heat transfer. Depending on your needs, we offer various insulation options that differ in thickness. For example, vinyl-back fiberglass insulation is an excellent option for buildings that need a moderate degree of insulation.
We do not install buildings, but we have a list of recommended contractors that can install your building or roof. We have also partnered with a contracting company that is licensed and insured and can provide a full range of contractor services including custom homes.
