How does a contractor license bond work?

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

To get your contractor bond in Illinois, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds issues contractor bonds instantly – often for only $100.

Frequently Asked Questions

Even with poor credit, you may be able to obtain the bond you need by paying a higher premium. However, poor credit doesn’t apply to contractor license bonds, which don’t require pulling credit scores. The underwriting for these bonds is simple, and we often issue them instantly for $100.

Strive always to perform your work professionally and efficiently. If a client has a complaint, try rectifying it before it becomes a claim.
