How are damages calculated in a small claims case?

A contractor started building a closet in my home 9 months ago but did not finish. This despite admitting the job was not complete, despite repeated calls, and despite being paid in full for the project. Additionally, at the end of the project, a worker reported the owner did not apply for permits, etc. So he could reduce the cost of the project and increase profit. The cost was $4100. Am I entitled to any damages due to time to pursue the contractor, my daughter not being able to use the closet all these months?
