You seem to have very valid disputes as to the payment of the full bill due to the work. Hopefully, you have documented your previous attempts to work out the matter with the contractor.Regardless, if you sent the contractor the check with notice that it was for full payment should he cash it, and he did cash it, then he will have a difficult time collecting on whatever balance he perceives to be owed. He would have needed to not cash the check and file suit against you if he was going to dispute the amount.
