Is 4e06 for von Mises stress a high stress level?

I did a finite element simulation on a Gable roof shell structure of 4 by 4 metres, of thickness 5 mm.

 

The maximum stress was at 4 x 10^8 MPa for von Mises stress. Is that too much?

Should I increase my thickness and rerun the simulation?

 

Edit:

The maximum stress was at 4 x 10^6 MPa for von Mises stress. Is that too much?

The elastic limit for Al 5052 is considered
