Aluminum skin

Postby Brucenrd » Tue Jul 14, 2020 5:47 pm

Hello everyone, my name is Bruce, I live in eastern Nebraska and have been building a tear drop for the better part of a year now. I am at the point where I need to decide how to finish the outside. I think I want to skin it with aluminum but don’t know where to get the supplies to do it. I welcome any suggestions.
Thank you

Try a local roofing company. That’s where I got 10’x4’ sheets of aluminum. They had all sorts of colors but I went with white.

I usually buy my trim from Vintage Technologies.

Sorry I'm late to this post. I procured my aluminum from a truck repair company. My skin is actually tractor trailer roof.
