ProVia announces the launch of the company’s new line of metal roofs, combining the luxury and beauty of slate or cedar wood shakes with the durability and longevity of a galvanized, sophisticated steel roofing system. The high-performance metal shake and slate roof from ProVia was developed to achieve and maintain a good appearance through a unique combination of high-performance materials.
ProVia’s 26 gauge (G90) hot-dip galvanized steel plates are 10 percent thicker than the industry average (28-30 gauge) and weigh up to three times less than asphalt shingles. According to the company, the exclusive 4-part GalvaTec-Kynar paint system offers long-lasting performance, is light and chalk resistant and offers a lifetime guarantee on the integrity of the coating and 40 years on chalk and fading. The hardened, resin-based surface of the GalvaTec finish system from ProVia naturally protects the metal slate and shaking roof from unsightly algae and black stripes that develop on granular and porous roofing materials such as conventional asphalt, slate and wood shaking.
The metal roof from ProVia is designed for a high standard of performance even under extreme weather conditions. It has been third-party tested to meet the rigorous ASTM and UL industry standards for tensile strength and resistance to:
- Wind Uplift: Up to class 90, 180 miles per hour
- Impact resistance (hail): Class 4
- Wind-driven rain
- Corrosion resistance
The two distinctive metal roof styles from ProVia – Shake and Slate – retain the unique properties of classic roof materials. The molds from which the metal plates are made are cast from real pieces of slate and wood, resulting in a realistic look. Every detail of these metal shake and slate plates has been carefully selected and cast from old elements into unique profiles with authentic surfaces inspired by nature.
ProVia offers a lifetime limited warranty that stands behind the quality of the company’s metal roofing products. According to the manufacturer, ProVia’s metal roof provides protection for the house for more than 50 years when properly installed. In addition, a processing guarantee covers the roof installation itself. This assurance is made possible by ProVia’s Certified Installer program and gives homeowners a high level of confidence that every application of ProVia metal roofing will produce a professional and guaranteed result. The limited lifetime warranty is transferable to a subsequent owner.
