metal roofing material in my shower

I'm thinking of installing metal roofing as the walls of my shower.
One, I would like the industrial look, and two it would be inexpensive (I think), and three it would be easy to clean.

Does anyone who knows about metal roofing prodects see why this would not work would a certain type work better than another? thanks in advance, Lynne

Not a roofer here

I would wonder how you intend to seal the top and bottom as well as attaching it to the wall.

It might be an interesting look.

If you actually do it, post some pics so we can all see the outcome.

Id still put a cement backer board up first. Like is used for tile. Over lap seams 2 ridges and use the s/s screws with the rubber washer on them ,that are made for metal roofs
