How does a contractor license bond work?
When a bond is required by law, contractors must work with a surety provider to secure the bond for the specific municipality before beginning a project in the area. The Village of Stickney Building Department requires one contractor license that covers all types of contractors. If you’re applying for a contractor’s license, include the following items in your application:
- Application Form
- License (i.e., a copy of your State of Illinois Contractors Certificate and Trade License, if applicable for your profession)
- Bond (original signed bond)
- Fee ($100)
The license (and bond) term follows the calendar year, starting on January 1 and expiring on December 31. Both must be renewed annually to remain active.
The bond amount for a Village of Stickney Contractor License Bond is $10,000. Contractors can secure this bond for a fraction of the bond amount. Because contractor license bonds are common and have simple underwriting, they cost as low as $100. We don’t even require a credit check.
