I have a customer asking me to use soft copper for his flat-lock soldered roof measuring 21 by 27. I have been using SMACNA specifications for 20 years now (20x28 blanks and an improved hem of 5/8" from the spec'd 1/2" hem and Hussey cold rolled copper). Hussey is a bit softer than Revere's equivalent, but is still firm enough for a great looking product.
Is there any drawback to using soft copper over cold rolled?
How do my 'dated' specifications stack up against more current specs? Should I make any changes?
