I gave a local concrete contractor a $1,000 deposit to begin

Customer Question

I gave a local concrete contractor a $1,000 deposit to begin work on a patio slab. He keeps delaying the start of the work and I have sent him a notice terminating the work order and requesting a full refund of the deposit within 30 days. No work has been commenced by the contractor. Am I fully within my rights to request a full refund?

How long has the delay been? Was there a deadline in the contract?
