If they did it without your permission and you didn’t authorise it, you don’t owe them anything.
The only time you can be forced to pay for repairs is if it is something necessary for life or health, and only after they have notified you, given you a reasonable time to fix the problem, and you didn’t.
For example if the furnace quit in the middle of winter, they told you, and you didn’t do anything for a week so they had it fixed, then yes they could sue you for the repair bill. But certainly not for a carport roof.
