6 Benefits of ProVia Metal Roofing

Why metal roofs are better than shingles

The decision to reroof your home is a big step, and choosing the right material is a crucial component of that process. After all, your roof plays a much larger role than just keeping rain or snow out of your home. The type of roof has a major impact on how you heat and cool your home. And it’s not just your home interior that’s protected: roofing protects as much as 60% of a home’s exterior surface, as well.

So, there’s a lot riding on your decision to replace your roof – and on your choice of roofing materials.

Advantages over other roofing materials

Traditional materials, like asphalt, wood shakes and slate, can present various issues such as:

  • Shorter life spans
  • Damage concerns
  • Maintenance issues
  • Disposal problems


Metal roofing from ProVia overcomes all those obstacles and provides significant advantages.

The #1 question you might be asking is “How long does a metal roof last?” In a nutshell, a ProVia metal roof would likely be the last roof you buy for your home, providing exceptional long-term benefits, with: 


  • A 50-year+ lifespan
  • Significant energy cost savings compared to asphalt shingles
  • Enhanced curb appeal and improved re-sale value
Our metal roofing shake and slate panels provide strength and durability, thanks to 26-gauge steel that’s up to 30% more than the industry average and designed with the WaveLock™ feature for superior performance. ProVia metal roofing is third-party tested to meet or exceed stringent ASTM and UL industry standards for tensile strength and resistance to:
  • Hail
  • Wind
  • Rain
  • Corrosion

Our lifetime limited transferrable warranty is second to none. Our metal roofing panels and/or trims and flashings are warranted against manufacturing defects and will not exhibit rusting, cracking, flaking, peeling (loss of adhesion) or loss of impact resistance with age, will not detach from the structure or deform in wind velocities up to 180 miles per hour.

Available in wood shake and slate styles, ProVia’s colored metal roofing provides natural-looking details in a durable finish. It offers: 


  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • Distinctive style
  • Fade and chalk resistance


ProVia metal shake and slate roofing provide the right aesthetic touch to complement any setting while offering distinctive architectural details, all with weathering resistance built right in.

You can also expect exceptional dirt, mildew and stain protection, thanks to our exclusive GalvaTec™ finish system. You won’t find algae or black streaks on your metal roof, like with asphalt, wood shakes or natural slate. Furthermore, unlike natural or stone-covered roofing, there’s virtually no material degradation with ProVia metal roofs. Should you ever find the need to clean your roof, a simple soap and water formula should suffice.


You can enjoy ongoing peace of mind, knowing your roof is safe, secure and corrosion-free.

ProVia metal roofing isn’t just good for your home; it’s good for the environment, too. Our roofing not only saves energy, but it’s also American-made from domestic recycled steel—and it’s 100% recyclable.

Whether you’re looking for durability, distinctive style or environmental sustainability, ProVia’s metal roofing is the answer.
