I am not trying to sell anything here, I am just hoping for some information. I work for an architectural metals company that focuses primarily on custom fabrication of architectural metals. We have the occasional masonry contractor as a custom and it is a market I would like to pursue. After all, we already have purchasing power to get great prices from our current suppliers and the fabrication machinery to create the products. I guess my question is, "What are the biggest difficulties that masonry contractors have with their suppliers and do you guys still use copper and stainless?"
Thanks for any help.

Been a while since I've been out in the field, but the only times I ever used copper flashing (three jobs if I recall) was when the roof was standing seam copper also. Never had any call to use SS.

I use copper and SS flashing all the time. The copper is usually the tar coated rolls used inside a cavity wall. Almost never do we use anything that is custom made though.
