[Greenbuilding] Roofers

I'm interested in the same question for Seattle.  We actually have engaged
a roofer to put a metal shingle roof on an existing house (tearing off old
asphalt) but I have no idea what insulation exists underneath.  Suspect
nothing.

Suggestions welcome, both for insulators in the Seattle (Ballard) area and
for what they do.  No idea how deep the rafters are but area covers only a
kitchen and bathroom.

thanks, Sacie
