Re: Tin roofing as window skin? Anyone used it?

i also would opt for the prepainted panels, but tyger asked about painting galvy panels and i put the info out their.
i also like the roof panels from the point that they have some shape/ridges in them to prevent warping/oilcan during and after the install.

Would anyone be able to offer suggestions on where to find such panels? Our local big box hardware stores sell metal shed kits, but the cost seems rather steep just for a few pieces of siding out of the entire box. Any other ideas? Am I just thinking too much inside the (big) box?

big box blue or orange as well as any good lumber yard should have single panels of metal roofing and siding available, also ask at the farm supply store like tractor supply.
