Beware of people pretending to know what they are talking about regarding roofing. In Illinois we have certification so that you can be confident that your roofer is legitimate.

My recommendations are:
(1) Ask another reputable professioanl roof contractor to inspect and proposed the correction needed and cost in meeting the current construction codes. Sometime you might get a free estimate and advice. You don't have to tell the new contractor about the disputes with the previous contractor. You just want this roof redone to meet the proper code and real professional roof works.
(2) Take the pictutes of the unprofessional jobs on your roof and some good example of proper roof works as comparison. The new contractor might be happy to take the pictures for you.
(3) After the above steps done, send those findings to the bad contractor and negotiate the remedies with register mail with a request to respond by 14 business days.
(4) If the communication is not success, bring all the proofs from step 1 to 3 before court for sue for breach of contract and seeking the fair judgement and compensation.
All you have done are protecting you as a reasonable person and your consumer rights. Hope this helps.

You should call an ingenior to come and take a look at your roof , it will cost you a bit of money , but if he can state that your roof need to be redone again you should easily get a clean case in court

Steel beams will need to be used if you want open space with no poles. Laminated beams can also be used but support poles will have to be added. Build a truss roof over top and do away with the flat roof.
