I called the contractor, Talon Homes, and, since they were on their way to North Dakota, they asked me to get a roofer to take care of the problem, and either bill them, or if I paid for the work, they would reimburse me.
I was able to arrange repair by getting a referral from Doug Feser, who is building a spec home across the street. He will be using C&C Construction to do his roofing, and he called them for me. Aurelio "Ral" Ceniceros came out the same afternoon to take care of the problem. He brought a helper, borrowed roofing material from another job, and finished the work in 1.5 hours.
The photos below show the problem and the work done to repair it. It's been raining ever since they did the work, and we feel very lucky that we got this taken care of so quickly.
