How does a contractor bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from any damages resulting from faulty work by the contractor. The bond guarantees that the contractor meets applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (The City of Berwyn). If the contractor neglects any stipulations in the bond agreement, clients can file a claim on the bond to receive compensation for damages. 

The contractor is the principal in the bond agreement. In the case of an approved claim, the surety company initially compensates clients up to the full bond amount. The contractor must then repay the surety for this amount. 

To obtain a contractor bond in Illinois, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can issue contractor bonds quickly – often for just $100.
