What is the name of your state? Minnesota

I entered into an agreement to with a roofing comany to pay them $3500 for a new roof. During the tear-off it was discovered I needed complete decking. I signed an additional agreement for $1,800 for all new decking. In the process my cathedral ceiling was punctured with over 70 nails protruding into the interior of my home. I stopped the work insisting on a state inspector. I found out they never got a permit to do the work which was part of the original agreement and is state law.

At this point; I verbally agreed on a monitary settlement from their insurance company. The roofing company has a deductable of $500 which they are to pay me direct and said they will release me from the contracts if I forget about the deductable.

Do I need a release from these unfulfilled contracts?

I do not want to give them anything. It has been 3 months and I only have a tarp on my ceiling boards and winter is coming.
