ProVia’s new metal barrel tiles help roofing contractors provide a steel alternative to homeowners seeking the traditional look of Spanish clay tiles.

ProVia recently expanded its roofing product lineup with the release of its metal barrel tile roofing, allowing roofing contractors to provide a steel alternative for homeowners seeking the look of Spanish clay tile. 

The 26-gauge metal roofing system is galvanized on both sides and fortified with a resin-based GalvaTec coating that ProVia says protects against mold, mildew and UV rays. It is engineered to withstand 130-mph winds and has a Class 4 impact rating and Class A fire rating. An anticorrosive coating is applied to both sides of the panels for added weather protection.  

ProVia’s metal barrel tiles come in four earthy colors and utilize tongue-and-groove attachments and hidden fasteners. The system has an expected product lifespan of more than 50 years, according to the company, and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty that includes unlimited transfers.
