How does an Aurora contractor license bond work?

Aurora contractor license bonds ensure that contractors perform their work professionally, following all rules and regulations regarding building codes, taxes, etc. If a contractor breaks any part of the bond agreement, clients that suffer harm or adverse financial effects may file claims.

The $10,000 Aurora contractor license bond is a contract between three parties: 

  • Principal: The contractor or contracted company
  • Obligee: The City of Arvada requiring the bond for work within city limits
  • Surety: The organization taking on initial responsibility for incidents that may occur. Contractors must pay back the full amount for approved claims on their bond over time.

Contractors pay an annual premium to obtain a contractor’s license bond. Many pay as little as 1% of the bond amount – or $100. The underwriting process is simple, and bonds are often issued instantly.
