I have a contract reno. It is past the completion

Customer Question

I have a contract for kitchen reno. It is past the completion date. I suspect the contractors have walked away from it but not sure. I still have a 10% withholding fee I haven't paid them the rest of the contract has been paid in full. Can I go ahead and find other means to finish this reno and keep the withholding fee without incurring any penalties or fallout?

Why can't you first ask them if they are intending to come back?And how long has it been since they last worked on your kitchen?
