How does a contractor license bond work?
Contractor license bonds protect a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from faulty work. The bond also guarantees that contractors follow applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (in this case, Lincoln County). If the contractor neglects any stipulations in the bond agreement, clients can file a claim on the bond to receive compensation.
To obtain a contractor bond in Georgia, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue contractor bonds quickly – typically for $100.
