A: Not a thing--except to sue the unlicensed roofer. But before you start a very expensive legal war that will not fix the problem, why not wait for the rains to come and see if the roof works like they are supposed to. Consider this fact:

The quality of any roof is not dependent upon whether you have a warranty or not. Unless you are planning to sell the house soon and will need a warranted roof there is no CURRENT problem.
