How does a contractor license bond work?

A Western Springs contractor license bond protects the public from subpar contractor work. When securing the bond, a contractor agrees to complete projects while following local building codes. Contractors who do not meet these standards will be responsible for any damages they cause. A surety ensures a swift financial settlement for affected parties.

The Western Springs Community Development Department oversees construction activities in the area. Applicable contractors must purchase and submit a $10,000 bond with their contractor license bond application. The bond and license are issued for one-year terms and must be renewed annually by the date of issuance.

Many contractor license bonds can be secured quickly and affordably (typically for $100). Call ZipBonds at 888.435.4191, so we can walk you through the bonding process and get you bonded in a zip!
