Comp would work

I suggested the "tin" roofing as it replace what is there. It's an older style of roofing, that is created with small sheets of sheet metal and the soldered. As I mentioned above, some of those old soldered roofs were know to last for over 50 years.
If you are looking for alternates, then you might consider a small standing seam metal roof. This would be a more modern approach and probably a little less than a soldered flat sheet metal roof.
Comp would be an option also, however you would have to add another membrane under the comp to allow for the low slope
