Sheet Metal Count Tab
With the sheet metal count, most of the time this is going to be used in something like a downspout or maybe a scupper.

With sheet length we do have a special capability:
If you type in the number 10, you’re going to be producing an in house fabrication line, metal ordered in price by the sheet, as well as an install labor line through the metal.
If you were to type in the number 1, the program is going to give you metal by a lineal footage for your pricing and it’s only going to give you an install labor line.
Depending on whether you’re ordering this prefabricated or you’re going to fabricate this yourself, depends on if you’re going to put in a 1 or a 10.
