Sun City Center, FL asked in Contracts for Florida

Q: We have a signed contract for replacement of windows in our home. At the removal of the old windows, a small amount of

wood rot was found and fixed by the window contractor. They are now billing us for what we consider an excessive amount for this repair and we have asked for a breakdown of # of hours and labor rate to justify their amount. They have refused--saying they do not have to provide that. Are we legally entitled to this information?
