How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that a contractor (the principal in the bond contract) completes work in accordance with county laws and regulations. This may include adhering to building codes, paying taxes, and fulfilling other contractual obligations. If a contractor in Putnam County breaks their license bond agreement, they may face costly claims.

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!
