For information on stainless steel roofing, refer to the Standard Practices for Stainless Steel Handbook at http://www.ssina.com/publications/standard.html.

You can download a pdf and print it out. They say that 20 ounce copper can be replaced with 28 gauge stainless steel. We have used a fair amount of 28 gauge stainless and it seems to work well. Stainless is relatively hard to work with. For example, you usually need to over-bend it to get it where you want it, because it springs back. It wears out tin snips and drill bits. So I'd avoid heavier gauges if they aren't needed.

yeah, Admiral Building Supply knows what you need. Normally 24 gauge can be good for both purpose.

You can buy stainless through a company called Admiral Building Supply. They are from Mass but delivere 2 or more time a week in Vermont. They quoted me on 22 and 24 gauge. If it just for flashing I would thing that 26 gauge would good.
