I​'ll re-post here.

I​ recommend that you file a consumer complaint against the contractor with the FL attorney general's office. You can file the claim online:

http://myfloridalegal.com/contact.nsf/contact?Open&Section=Citizen_Services

I also recommend that you file a complaint with the Dept of Business and Professional Regulations:

https://www.myfloridalicense.com/datamart/complaintDBPR.do?applicationId=1

You can also file suit against the contractor for overcharging and for negligence by filing a complaint with the clerk of court in your county.

Have I answered all your questions.
If so, please remember to accept my response and post a positive 5-star rating.
