payment for bad work

I had a leak over entire winter from the roof shingles that was not properly done. Contractor did not receive the payment for his work because shortly after the job was finish he left the country when he comeback 2 weeks later my entire roof was leaking with the first snow fall so I did not pay for the job. In the work contract he gave me 3 years warranty. Trying to solve my problem and his payment I had offer him to redo the entire roof as per engineer report or other option that he can send his subcontractor or I will fined a new contractor he refuse all 3 offers instead he taking me to court for the payment , I fill hopeless do we have any rights as consumers?

If you are being sued for payment -You need to consult/hire a lawyer!!!

You will need to prove the work was substandard and needs to be redone. A statement along with an esimate from a couple of roofers would be needed.
