please define roof replacment

our roofing contracter and we seem to have a different opinion of what roof repair and replacement means. Could someone in the field please tell me what we should have expected to get done?

Roof repair is fixing a particular area of a roof that may have a problem.
Roof replacement is tearing the entire roof off and doing it over.

Repairing is just that, repairing a specific problem area. Ripped shingles, a leaky piece of flashing, ridge vent problem, etc

Replacing is ripping the roof off down to the sheathing and starting over.
