Roofers didn't use ice and water shield per contract?

Just had a new roof put on by a reputable roofing company with good reviews but I have a few concerns I would like feedback on. My roof is a 10/12 pitch and we are in central Indiana. When I got quotes most roofers said I didn't need ice and water shield on the eaves because it was so steep. The company I went with said the same thing (recommended valleys and around walls only). However, I told them I would like it along all the eaves as well and this was put in the contract. Well they did the roof this weekend and I was there part of the time and am pretty sure they did not put it down on the eaves.

How can I verify if they did before I bring it up? Owner is supposed to come over for a walk through today or tomorrow before I make the final payment (half down half due after walk through). If I do verify that they did not put it down how to I handle it? Can they rip the new shingles off the edge and put it down and make it look right or do they have to redo it all? Other options?

Thanks

Around here a re-roof requires a permit and the AHJ insists on pictures of the ice and water shield installation before the shingles are installed.

Lift the shingles up and look. If it's not there ask him why. Up to you if you want them to rip it off to do it.

Ok. So I pulled them up and checked. Just felt paper on the eaves. I know the valleys have ice/water though.

So now what do I do? Does this require they do a complete rip off? Is it appropriate to just rip off the 3 feet around eaves pit ice/water down and the shingles back over? Do I just leave it without and ask for a certain amount off since it wasn't done per the contract?

Thanks
