There is a thing called a mechanics lien and once you file it and the owner of the building finds out the general contractor generally pays real quick. You must file within a certain time frame I understand a little different from state to state. My homeowners association was doing a major roofing job and when we found out we had a lien the homeowners association paid and deducted from roofing contractor's contract. When all else fails this works however you may do the contractors work again. But you will get paid.
