- How important is being environmentally friendly to you? Do you want a roof that utilizes green or recycled materials? Do you want to minimize waste in local landfills?
- How long do you plan on living in your home? Do you want a roof that will last a lifetime? Furthermore, how much maintenance are you willing to put in or to pay for to preserve the life of your roof?
