Question about 0.032 thick aluminum gutters?

hi folks.

Im want to replace some of the gutters on my house. They are 5 K-style aluminum white. The thickness of the current gutters are 0.032 . Id like to replace with the same thickness - 0.032. The thickest I can find is 0.025 at a local good old fashioned hardware store.

What type of place would I look to find the 0.032? Seems like all the folks selling gutters want to do the installation (I cant blame them for that!). Must be some place the contractors buy their stuff? But would they sell to a DIYer?

Or would the 0.025 be good enough to prevent denting by a ladder or something like that and 0.032 is really an overkill?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
