Roof membrane paint or sealant

I'm seeking recommendations on excellent roof membrain sealant/paint. Contracter repaired an ice dam and re-shingled my roof. They were going to paint the newly installed membrane (small 4.x 5 area) to match shingle color (better) than leave it white. I'm struggling to get them to come back and have given up on getting their help.

I just want to avoid using an "average" paint; I'm not aware of commercial products or something that really lasts.

You'd want an elastomeric roof paint, some can be tinted.

Really ?!?!!

Why didn't the contractor use black like every other contractor would have done.
Did he supply the membrane for free ?

I would have thrown him off the roof.

If the roof was re-shingled why is the membrane showing? Membrane goes under the shingles not on top, you dont paint it!
