    David’s Answer

    You technically will need to work as much as the owners want. It sounds as if you are being taken for granted. You need to have a life. Quit if you need/ want to, but find another job first.

    You should get paid for your time. It appears that the company is violating several laws and you have the right to get attorney fees as well.

    Generally, if a contractor does a terrible job, you can sue them. It sounds like they did a terrible job. You would need to have another contractor estimate what it would cost to fix the problems. You would have to prove your damages. You can also threaten to sue, however, it does not appear that this company would be threatened easily. Contact an attorney in your area to discuss the issue.
