A roofer just sent me a "CALIFORNIA PRELIMINARY 20-DAY NOTICE", I don't think the job has been completed, also I never signed anything.

I received some quotes about fixing an area of my roof deck that had been leaking. A father and son came out and said that the seam near the wall and door had to be re-sealed. The father pointed to a bubble adjacent to the door and said that was evidence of a leak there. They emailed me a quote for $275. We arranged to sign contract before the job was started.
In the quote they sent it said:
"INSTALL THE FOLLOWING REPAIRS ONLY AS FOLLOWS:
1. ON FLAT SECTION WHERE ROOF MEETS SIDING, RE-SEAL WITH PLASTIC ROOFING CEMENT ALL ROOF TO
2. CLEAN PROPERTY OF ALL ROOFING DEBRIS"
We arranged to meet sometime between 7-9am. I asked to be called 10 minutes prior to ensure I was present. They didn't call and instead used a ladder to get on the roof deck from the outside, did the job and left. I called because the bubble was not addressed, causing whenever you walked on the bubble to break the seam they just laid.
Guy came out today to check out my complaint, left and then I received the notice in email.
