There have been many a times where I have specifically said "this is my company" or "I am the boss" to him.

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Why do you have to tell him you're the boss or that it's your company if he knows. To me this situation screams poor management. Why would an employee feel like he could yell at the boss? Why would the boss let it fly? This seems pretty straightforward to me....either smarten up and do what I say and how I say it, or find another job. Done, thread over. I don't think it's an employers job or responsibility to teach respect, that is a parents job. I'm sure you could find another drywall guy or painter to install pavers
I am not sure I would offer a reward system for my employees to respect me. Employees can see weakness in management a mile away, I would re-evaluate what I was doing.
