ProVia has added Barrel Tile Metal Roofing to its product line. Roofers, remodelers, builders and architects can now offer homeowners the stylish look of authentic Spanish clay tile and the strength, longevity, and performance of steel.

The 26-gauge metal roofing system is galvanized on both sides and fortified with a GalvaTec™ coating that protects against mold, mildew, and harsh UV rays. It’s engineered to withstand 130-mph winds and has a Class 4 impact rating and Class A fire rating. 

Spanish clay tile is synonymous with old-world Mediterranean architecture, but it’s a challenge to install and maintain. Metal barrel tile offers several advantages for dealers and installers who want to make the switch from clay tile; compared to clay tile, the new product offers:

• An easier installation process

• Lighter weight; no need for additional structural support

• More durable and long lasting

• Resistant to damage from hail and wind-borne debris

• 50+ year lifespan and backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty with unlimited transfers.

ProVia Barrel Tile Metal Roofing combines the classic beauty and distinct character of authentic Spanish clay tile. The cascading barrel profile offers elegant curb appeal, and the colors – Terracotta, Mocha, Auburn, and Jade – complement the earthy hues of traditional hacienda-style architecture. A Kynar™ 500 ceramic pigmented finish provides a low-sheen, matte appearance, and the resin-based topcoat protects the surface from dirt, mildew, and algae stains. 

“It has been a long-time goal of ProVia to offer this classic, beloved style to our customers,” stated Scott Lowe, roofing sales director. “The profile and colors are gorgeous and perfectly suited for Mediterranean and Spanish architectural design, so popular in coastal areas and the southwest. The system uses tongue-and-groove attachment and hidden fasteners for a cleaner look. But it’s not just good-looking – it stands up to extreme winds, heavy rain, hail, and intense sunlight. It’s a smart investment for homeowners who want substance, not just style.”
