Jeffersonville, IN asked in Contracts for Kentucky

Q: Can I terminate a contract with a co that is supposed to do remodeling and has done nothing in 3 1/2 weeks?

They were given $11,000 for first draw. They took out three walls of drywall and carpet then said the check didn't clear their bank and nothing happened for 2/ 12 weeks. I checked it was cashed on September 6. Then keeps telling me new start dates and no body shows up. Now is telling me he can't give me a start or ending date due to his guys schedule. I don't want them to come back. There is nothing in the contract about termination. They are also not licensed contractors. (I know I am stupid).
