What-type-of-steel-sheathing-do-you-use

Our typical sheathing is 26 gauge 80,000 or 50,000 psi tensile strength steel.
Our typical profile is PBR which has a 1-1/4 inch high rib every foot and two ¼ ribs between each high rib. This profile adds to the sheeting strength and gives an attractive finish look. The 26 gauge is industry standard and we will substitute with 24 gauge if requested.
Keep one thing in mind when reading quotes received from suppliers. If they only call out the tensile strength, this is not good enough. You can have 80,000 psi steel, but if this is for 28 or 29 gauge sheeting, this is way to thin.
