I would suggest being sure to get a roofer who is also experienced in truss/rafter (roof framing) repairs and replacements - because if you see rot in the underside of the sheathing (where you presumably saw it), you may well have rafter/truss damage as well that needs repair, so you want a roofer with that capability.


Or if you saw rot in the fascia board across the end of the rafters, ditto to above, or if pretty minor a normal roofer can replace the fascia board without trouble - but ask to be sure tht is something they routinely do and are experienced in.


Or perhaps a General Contractor if you think that likely, who will then get a roofer (who you might make subject to your preapproval) to do the roofing after the framing and sheathing are fixed.


Note that if the roof framing (other than the sheathing) needs repair/replacement, in most areas you will need a Structural Engineer or Civil Engineer inspection to be able to get (or for the contractor to get) a building permit for the work. Most GC's know one they routinely use for this - most roofers do not, so if you are seeing more than spotty fascia rot without indication of decay in the rafter tails, that would push my reocmmnedation toward getting a General Contractor with significant roof framing repair/replacement experience.
