How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that a contractor (the principal in the bond contract) completes work per county or state laws. This may include adhering to building codes, paying taxes, and fulfilling other contractual obligations.
A Hall County contractor license bond protects the county (the obligee) and a contractor’s clients from financial losses. If one of these parties identifies a break in the bond agreement and files a claim, the surety company will cover the client’s damages. The principal must then reimburse the surety for the amount paid out.
You do not need to pay the full bond amount to acquire your surety bond. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds issues contractor license bonds quickly for as little as $100. Apply online today!
