FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
NEW CONSTRUCTION VS. ROOF REPLACEMENT
The installation of a new roof on a home is relevant to both new construction and roof replacement. On an existing building, a roof replacement is carried out using either a tear-off method or an overlay method. Before installing the new roofing materials, your roofer will fully remove the old ones during a tear-off. The old shingles are covered with new ones in an overlay.
Designing and constructing a roof for a brand-new house or structure is known as new construction roofing. You'll need new construction roofing contractors to put in the roof's framework, underlayment, and covering when you're having a house or other structure built.
WHAT ARE YOUR FINANCING OPTIONS?
Even if insurance is covering a portion of the replacement, we are aware that replacing a roof comes at a significant cost. We've teamed up with GreenSky to provide qualified homeowners 12-month, interest-free financing alternatives to help them budget for their roof replacement.

ARE ROOFS YOUR ROOFS ENERGY EFFICIENT?
Short answer YES! No matter the weather outside, your home can stay comfortable with an energy-efficient or cool roof. It can lower the need for heating and cooling, which can cut your energy bills. Your carbon footprint decreases together with your electricity consumption.
The longevity of a roof can be greatly increased by selecting a lighter-colored roofing system by dramatically lowering the temperature of the roof. While asphalt shingles can be constructed with specifically coated granules for increased solar reflectance, metal roofs can have natural metallic finishes, granular coated surfaces, or oven-baked paint finishes. Single-ply membranes can be coated to increase their reflectivity.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE INSTALLATION?
The first step in the roofing process for new construction is a thorough examination of the building envelope. In order to evaluate the proposed roofing system and choose the best type of deck, insulation, and membrane or roofing material, we will carefully inspect the structure.
In order to produce the optimal roofing solution, 3:12 will assess the conditions your new roof must resist to complete the inspection.
Based on the inspection's findings, 3:12 will create a roofing system that satisfies your demands for performance, insulation, wind resistance, and slope.
Next, your roofer needs to give you a proposal that includes a thorough outline of your project, a clear budget, as well as information on the system's specifications and installation techniques.
The project has been approved, and we will proceed with installing the roof. After the installation, 3:12 will perform a last check of your new roof and be available to respond to any inquiries you may have.
