The owners of this beautiful Mediterranean-style house were eager to replace their worn asphalt roof. They wanted something that would match the architectural style of their home and loved the look of barrel tile but were wary of the expense, weight, and maintenance of clay. More importantly, they wanted a long-lasting, durable roof that would endure and protect against heavy rain and snow, damaging hail, and harsh sunlight without deteriorating or color fading. 

ProVia Metal Barrel Tile roofing “checked all the boxes” according to the homeowners. The roofing panels are manufactured with 26-gauge steel, galvanized on both sides, with a thermally deposited anti-corrosive coating. Unlike asphalt shingles, the surface texture is not porous; the stamped panel system has a durable GalvaTec™ coating that resists mold and mildew. The metal panels have up to 30% more steel than the industry average, while also being three times lighter than asphalt shingles, making the system easier to install without the additional structural support needed with clay tiles. It’s engineered to withstand 130-mph winds and carries a Class 4 hail rating.

The cascading profile of ProVia Metal Barrel Tile roofing offers elegant curb appeal, and the colors — Terracotta, Mocha, Auburn, and Jade — complement the earthy hues of desert, coastal, Mediterranean, and Mission-style architecture. A Kynar™ 500 ceramic pigmented finish provides a low sheen, matte appearance. Tongue-and-groove panel attachment and hidden fasteners provide a clean look, devoid of clunky screws and bolts. 

The homeowners are thrilled with all the advantages their metal roof provides. “It gives us the longevity we wanted, it’s going to look great, and it’s low maintenance – everything we were looking for.”
