How does a contractor license bond work?

A compliance bond guarantees that a contractor abides by applicable city ordinances in Cape Coral. The contractor is the principal in the bond agreement with the obligee (City of Cape Coral) and the surety. The surety company may cover damages the contractor incurs – up to the full bond amount of $25,000. The contractor must then repay the surety over time.

You will pay a premium to obtain your bond – a small percentage of the total bond amount. ZipBonds can issue contractor bonds quickly, often for as low as $100.

Do I need a Cape Coral compliance bond and a state bond?

In Florida, you may need a state contractor license bond plus a Cape Coral compliance bond to work as a contractor within the city. Florida requires contractors with a credit score below 660 to become bonded. Contact Cape Coral Development Services or ZipBonds to verify the requirements for your situation.
