    guess that depends on your budget---stainless steel,copper. The extra corrosion resistance of Galvalume (corrugated metal)means that scratches, bends, or cut edges won’t rust so quickly, and it also makes a better choice in rainy climates and in salt air.Any galvanized/corrugated metals should not be used because they cannot be properly sealed and will rust,unless it's an outdoor shower/tub,the extra air flow will reduce rusting time.

      just ask them.......knowledge is power;maybe you could use silver paint that is used on galvanized chain link fences just depends what is on it(white?) if it will stick after constantly getting wet;did he paint it already? Go on Ramona ask them some questions heck maybe they will even help put it in......
