    we were in the unfortunate position of having to replace our roofing. I did my homework and chose a white metal roof. I live in a double wide, a big rectangle that just wasn't made for energy efficiency.

    I contacted a local guy who does roofing as a second job and told him that I wanted metal, and I wanted white to combate heat islands, and I wanted it to help insulate my home. He was unfamiliar and went and studied, he came back to tell us that he was impressed with what he'd learned and soon we had our roof and our tax subsidy.

    We are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

    Our roofing guy now is doing so many metal roofs (including his own) that he's hired his son.

    Good job, President Obama
