Standing seam metal will last the longest and be the cheapest. You can apply that over what you have there now. No need to rip anything off. Put down 1/4 inch styrofoam under it to keep nails on existing roofing from punching up through if they back out. Any color you want. Some colors may fade. I opted for black (white house). If it fades, so what, then it'll be charcoal, which is another color they offer. Two things about standing seam metal. 1. Snow slides off quickly. If you get a lot of snow, you will have snow piles along the sides of your house. In my case, I have a steep pitch and wide overhangs so the snow flies out quite some distance from the house. 2. When it rains, it will be noisier than what you've been accustomed to with asphalt. On the top floor, that is. The metal roof on our big barn, which was applied over wood shingles in 1915, was still in great shape in 2008. It had to be painted periodically because it wasn't pre-colored.
BTW: We refer to metal roofs as "Iron Roofs". Best there is and it is the most important part of your building. If it goes, the rest follows quickly.
