I meant to specify Copper. I am familiar with SER but customer wants me to look into copper
I was just messing with you. :) Copper is going to be very hard to find in those sizes, and be prepared for major sticker shock if you do actually find it.

Why would someone want to use copper in this century unless the environment had something that destroys aluminum.
Customers hear that AL is bad at some point in their life and that's it, they want copper. If they are willing to pay for I will supply it:thumbsup:

I hate the anti aluminum ignorance. My local ignoramus government outlawed aluminium in residential work past the service equipment.

I have had to replace to aluminum to AH, AC and Range before insurance companies would give them coverage. How do you fight that? Stupid or not you just do it and get paid.

Insurance companies and the government know what's best for you, just send them your money.

Here the insurance inspections don't allow "single conductor aluminum wire" so, this would cover most of the branch circuit wiring.
I've seen plenty of poorly installed old school soft aluminum conductor go bad, but, I have had many more calls for bad copper terminations. It could just be the difference in volume of installed materials but the way people seem to talk about it, copper wire, once installed, will never have a problem.
