Paying contractor for unfinished work

I had windows put in to my house earlier this month. I paid about $5k already for a 12.5K job. They installed the windows, however there was some damage to one (they said they would fix but havent yet), the color was partially wrong, and the trim hasnt been painted/stained. All of which should have been done per the contract. I havent been billed and havent heard from them since the windows were put in over 2 weeks ago. What happens if they just never finish the job? Do i have to pay them the remainder? What if I just wait it out, is there a time limit on how long they have to collect on the unfinished job? (so essentially i'd pay only the 5k and finish it myself) I'm in Wisconsin
