Please take a look at these photos and tell me if this is a poor installation.

The job was done in January near Seattle,WA. Daytime temps were in the 30’s and 40’s and nights were in the 20’s. The old shingles were stripped, no sheeting was replaced (OSB over old skip sheeting), 30lb felt was installed and new shingles (Pabco Premier 30 year) were power nailed.
I thought that the felt looked pretty wavy after it was installed, but I hoped they knew what they were doing. At completion I told the contractor that I was really unhappy about the job and that I thought it looked like an old roof with curling shingles. (I had also expressed unhappiness with the appearance about 1/8 of the way through and he said “don’t worry”.) He promised it would calm down within a week or two after a few sunny days and that I didn’t need to pay him the second half of the contract until I was happy. Well three weeks have gone by and it looks the same. I am not in a habit of not paying my bills, nor do I want to threaten to sue this guy, but I am not sure what else to do. Wait until summer and if some real heat doesn’t relax it by then demand action?
By the way, yes he is licensed, bonded and insured and says he has 25 years in the business. Of course he didn’t personally install the roof…
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, even if its “Hey lady, it looks fine what’s your problem?”
