garage conversion insulation

I would like information on insulating an exsiting conversion of a garage to room. We had it done two years ago by a nightmare contractor. We are at the point where we don't believe that he added insulation to the floor or the walls. Can anything be done?
Do I need to gut and redo? What are my options?
Thanks Joan

What is on the floor? Is it just finish (carpet?) over concrete, or did contractor put down sleepers and plywood?

What are the ourside walls made from (wood, brick, vinyl, etc.)?

The floor was concrete, the contractor put in 2x10s, plywood and then we put 1/2 carpet and 1/2 vinyl flooring. The cold walls are the outside of the house vinyl siding over wood, 2x3s and then sheetrock. On the bottom of the sheetrock there is about 3" of concrete all along the base of the walls. When it was a garage this was part of the walls but came up a foot or so.
Thanks
