Is .63 cents per linear foot a good price for galvalume R panel?

I've called around looking for prices on basic R panel and the best price I've found is .63 cents a linear foot no matter what the length of the panels are. This is galvanized, no color galvalume 3' wide R panel. It sounds like a good deal to me but I usually find out that I could have saved a ton of cash if I had just waited a few minutes more and asked someone.

$115/sq means what exactly? I'm being quoted by the foot and having the panels cut to a custom length that I need to match whats already built.

A square is 100 square feet

So if your panels are .63 a foot for a 3ft wide panel your paying ~$21 a square.

In other words place the order?

I just placed the order for 4 10' sections of roof ridge cap, 32 10' 2" panels and 32 8' panels plus 4 8' corner caps all 24 gauge for $1360.00 plus tax, I pick it up on Friday. Sounds like a damn good deal to me.

That looks like $1.28 a sq/ft including accessories - not too far from the $115 per square we just did - but your panels are thicker. It seems like there are a lot more metal building suppliers in TX.
