Sure - though if the water has kept coming in or leaking you may have added Mold and/or Rot and maybe utility corrosion issues to deal with too.
==== IF you are talking only roof damage (including sheathing), then sure - a Roofing company is what you need. ====== IF you are talking interior damage of significance as well, or minimal roof damage but water damage inside from the leak, the following applies: Your Search the List category for this would normally be Water and Smoke Damage (or maybe a Remodeling, General Contractor), and possibly Mold Testing and Remediation - either separately or more conveniently working under the remediation contractor.
Of course, in extreme cases, if the leakage has been continuing so the entire unit is very humid constantly and has become a mold farm, it might not be worth the cost - both because of the cost of the actuall repair and the fact that the entire unit may be mold impregnated, which would mean basically a total demolition of the home. ====== Plus, given the time interval, in either case it is highly unlikely your insurance company will pay off because even if caused by a short-term leak at the time, because of the sit time they are likely to class it as long-term leakage damage and hence not covered under most insurance policies.
