At present, concepts based on sustainable technology are widespread. The use of sustainable materials and integrated building structure design has begun to grow rapidly. The implementation of sustainable activities also creates competition among players in the construction sector. However, in the pursuit of sophisticated and comfortable civilization, development activities have a negative impact on the environment. This is important because the issue is the world's attention. Basically, the structure of the building should be designed as user-friendly and implement the concept of environmental conservation. The scope of this study focuses on environmental-based conceptual roof tiles. The purpose of this study is to identify and evaluate the factors that make the roof tile adopt a sustainable concept. Previous studies have been studied to identify the selection factors that make existing roof tiles practicing sustainable concepts. There are 9 factors of roof tile selection that have been identified through previous research. Distribution of questionnaires was also conducted with contractors and those involved in construction activities to evaluate the selection factors. Data analysis from the feedback questionnaire was evaluated by SSPS Software. The highest mean score is for corrosion-resistant factors and not easily brittle with a value of 4.77. This is because, with uncertainty and hot weather in Malaysia, they believe that roof tiles should withstand weather erosion and reduce construction waste. Obviously, most respondents agreed with the proposed sustainable factor to repair existing roof tiles.
