bought a house in the contract the seller agreed re roof the house. the contractors fixed the roof after about a week the roof started to leak. they came back and "fixed" the roof for free. well about a month after that the roof started to leak once again and now they want to charge me 7500 dollars, which is more than they got paid to do my whole roof which was 5000. my question is does the contractor legally have to stand by their work even if there was no contract between me and the company?
Yes, you are the beneficiary of the contract between the seller and the roofer. If there is any doubt you can get the seller to assign the seller's contract rights against the roofer to you. The seller should be happy to do this in exchange for your agreement to not make a claim against the seller.
