I just put a new roof on my house. Do I ask the contractors for a list of lein holders and subcontractors to know that all leins have been satisfied?

Before payment, you should require that the contractor provide you conditional waiver and release forms for itself and any subcontractor that has provided you with preliminary notice.  After payment you may also get unconditional waiver and release forms from the same parties. The CSLB information on these forms can be found here.
