Metal siding and roofing

My barn is ready for metal siding and roofing and I need help comparing the 2 quotes I have for the material. There is around a 45 percent price difference between the 2 manufacturers.

Both are quoting 26 gauge metal which will go over osb sheeting material. Both quotes include screws soffit and trim pieces.
One company is quality metal roofing that serves WV,ky,pa,oh, and va.
The other company is man-sea metal from Winchester, ky

Hopefully someone can educate me on this industry to explain the higher price with man-sea. Any differences come to mind? Questions I should be asking?

Thanks for any and all thoughts or comments
