Interested in installing a stainless steel countertop, what should i know?

Hi guys,

I think i'm going to call around sheet metal shops and just order a stainless steel countertop top (after measuring myself of course) so i can install it myself rather than paying big $$$ for someone else to do it.

I know one of the important things that i should know is the gauge of the stainless steel i want to install (i'm thinking 16 gauge?), but is there anything else i should ask the sheet metal shops about their stainless steel or how they fabricate it? Thanks!

May want to check some used restaurant equipment places they may have some of the raw materials.
