Well, Amanda, the only upside to your not having a written contract is that your contractor doesn't have one either.

Welcome, Amanda. :)

Sorry to hear about your problems, but, unfortunately, it's something we (TYW) hear over and over.

I'm gonna guess you really mean your joist spacing, rather than the joist span, is 16" on center. You also need to know the unsupported span of your joists, among other...
