Roof/Rafter Help Please

When I had my house inspected, the Inspector said the joists & rafters holding up the roof were bad & a Structural Engineer was needed to design the fix. I gave all this info & pictures to the Roofer. I thought he had taken care of it. I just had an energy audit done by the same Inspector & he said the roof was not repaired the way it was supposed to be. He said it was a "temporary fix". I know I need to call the original roofer, but honestly, I dont trust a word he says now. I assume I need to hire a Structural Engineer (at my cost) & then show his report to the roofer. Where do I find someone like this? Thanks/Jina

Yellow pages in your area under Engineers. You could also ask the inspector if he had any recommendations, though they may be hesitant for legal reasons.
