Q. Need assistance with a bad roofing company
A: The contractor has a responsibility to correct any defects in the instillation. If you provide the contractor with notice and a commercially reasonable time to cure and the contractor fails to do so, you can have the work done by a different contractor. You then have a claim against the original contractor for the cost to cure the defect.
