Dear customer, not installing underpayment under the roof shingles is unacceptable regardless this is a shed or a house. The result at the end would be the same which would lead to roof leaks. If a contractor guarantees the work for one year does not mean the work is not supposed to meet building codes. International building code has nothing to do with your state code. Here is what you need to do. Call your towns building department and ask whether a shed's roof does not require underpayment. If the answer is no it doesn't then it is nothing you can do other than contacting the builder and trying to make him take the responsibility. For example, as contractor myself if I was in a solar position I would rather make the necessary repair and take the cost (which in your case it will not be very high rather than having an unhappy customer. Saving a little money could cost you loosing a few more customers from referrals. But this is how I operate and not all professionals operate the same way. Now, if the building department tells you that the code requires underpayment even in shed's roof then you could ask them to provide you with the code requirement in writing (in most towns building code can be found in their website) and visit the department of consumer a fairs and show them in writing what the code specifies. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, if you are satisfied with my answer I would apreciate your feedback by accepting my answer and rating my service. Best of luck!!!
I apologize for a couple words I misspelled such as solar which I meant to write similar and a fairs which I meant to write affairs :)
