LOL probably a home owner. Regardless 3/12 is still an adequate enough for shingles if you have a licensed professional roofer install your roof. Over lap not adequate? Don't fall into the false idea that shortening the overlap from 5 1/4" down to 4" or something will solve your problem because it will void your manufacturer warranty. However if you have a shingle intended for 5 1/4" and you have a 5 1/2" exposure then you do have a problem.

What you are describing is nothing that can't be solved with proper metal flashing, and preflashing with ice shield. This is something your licensed roofing contractor can help you with. I have many many many 3/12 pitched roofs out there that have been keeping the water out for a very long time.

If you do change the pitch of your roof, you will need to call an architect or engineer to draw plans, submit those plans for approval, hire a carpentry crew and a roofing crew. You might as well just add a 2nd floor since you will be removing the entire roof structure from your home and LOL it wouldn't cost that much more to add a 2nd floor if you are going through all the trouble of repitching the roof.

If you can't see the roof from the ground, install a nice single ply roof such as TPO, or EPDM at a fraction of the cost of pitching the entire structure and you won't have to look up for 20 years.
