After terminating a contract with a contractor he then decided to order materials is he even able to deduct that price from our deposit we paid

After a clear termination of the contract, the contractor typically should not order more materials and charge you for those materials. Your written contract with the contractor should govern the contractor's rights and responsibilities in the event of termination. Feel free to send the contract to the email address below if you would like me to see if the contract has terms governing the termination. If the contractor has violated the contract, you could send a written demand for return of the deposit without deducting for the materials and file a lawsuit if the contractor doesn't comply. You could also file a complaint with the CSLB or make a claim against the contractor's license bond. You can find more information about these options at https://www.cslb.ca.gov.
