There is no requirement of a writing. If you entered an oral contract, it is binding. That said, if you have a dispute about the quality of the work; the conformity to specs, etc...that's another issue. But it you in fact retained this contractor, you must address the issue. He can put a mechanic's lien on your house and/or sue you for money he claims is due.
