First, to just butt them together and lay a piece of trim over the seam. (I am planning on laying the aluminium coil cross ways.)
Second, to place a bend of about an inch in the edge of each piece so to interlock each piece.
I am (maybe wrongly) not so concerned with thickness as I am with it staying put.

Bear with me on this........ I have a brake that bends metal. I was wondering if I used 60" x !0" pieces of coil run across the roof...... Is .30 gauge enough ? I can bend my own siding in colors using coiled material if .30 would work .....
The 60" pieces that ran across the roof would have an interlock to snap each piece in as I go.........
I know that I can bend the aluminum stock to make anmything I want, but the part I would be concerned with is the lightness of .30 ga.
