Hello, thanks in advance for your help. I am in the middle of a project and my contractor installed a rubber roof on a section of my roof where the architectural plans called for a tin roof. When I brought this up with the contractor, he told me that the rubber roof is more reliable and is in fact more expensive than the tin roof. The rubber roof looks like tar paper that wasn't covered with shingles and I think the roof would be much better looking with the tin. Is the contractor correct in saying that the rubber is more durable/reliable and more expensive than the tin? This does not make sense intuitively to me and I think he may be trying to pull a fast one. Your advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.

I would strongly suggest a quality metal roof designed for whatever the pitch of the roof is in this area. This will be a greater investment than rubber roofing.
