If you have access to palm or coconut trees, a thick layer can be made into a roof. Secure them with the fiber of the frond stems. That's how it is done in our provinces. These can last 5 years with patching from time to time

Wood planks covered with slakes, or you can salvage metal. Hell if you were determined enough, you could cut open all the tin cans you found, flatten them out and nail them down like shingles.

Tarps. If u have a hole. Patch it up with a tarp. Duct tape the edges to prevent water coming in.

Same way they did it in the not too distant past: wood, slate, thatch. Can idea is interesting though...You'd have to have a lot of cans but that would be interesting looking and I bet it would work.
