We've had a new standing seam roof installed on half our house, now the roof if leaking? #green

I was told by my roofing company that doing a new standing seam in phases is not a problem. We had the north east side done this summer, and now the ridge if leaking on our house. The roof was not leaking prior to having the work done this summer. The main reason I decided to do standing seam was so hopefully the snow and ice will not keep building up on it. Any idea why we have leaks now?
