Need advice modernizing roman brick home

Hi there!

I recently purchased a 1950s duplex, and I’m in the process of making some major design decisions in including roof, windows, etc.

As the asphalt roof is at the end of its designed life, I was thinking to update the exterior look with either a metal roof or a light grey composite, but Imm struggling to decide what the best concept is for the house both as an investment property or something I may remodel into a single family home and sell down the road.

I‘m leaning towards going the metal route, and fashioning it in light colors all around (as pictured in the inspiration photo below), but I‘m curious how well I could pull it off with the very 50s shape and exterior of the home.

What do we think about the roof material and color (black/light grey/regal white)?
