What do you wish you'd known before buying a new roof?

We've got a 1400 square foot house that needs a new roof. There are several layers already up there; we've been told we'll need to get them all stripped off before a fresh layer is put up.
We live in an area where summer heat is more of a big deal than winter cold. Snow isn't an issue; fire safety is.
We're just starting our research. So what do you wish you'd known before you put a new roof on? Or what are some stumbling points that we should be looking out for?
BONUS QUESTION: At some point we want to add insulation to our attic. Are these projects ever tackled at once? Or which one to do first?
