Building Standards; Getting It Right!

We are having our old metal roof replaced as the result of an insurance claim.
I am not happy with the quality of the work, but am not sure if I am being too picky..
The roofing screws in the valley are nowhere near straight on the right hand side plus the valley itself has a imperfect join and you can see the outline where certain sheets overlap.Ignore the ridge caps as they have not been replaced yet.
Is this work acceptable?
To me it looks unsightly, but would like some opinions before I annoy the builder even more..

Functionally it's fine.
Aesthetically it's ugly.
Good quality tradesmen will use a chalkline to make sure the screws are in a straight line.

Thanks for your input.
Regarding the metal valley itself, I was wondering why have a join at all. Since this is an insurance claim and presumably someone must have measured up for materials needed, why not just get the correct length?
Am not sure of the exact length and maybe it exceeds the max size available.
Appreciate your opinion..
