How does a contractor license bond work?

Contractor license bonds protect a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from work that is lacking in some way. The bond also guarantees that contractors obey applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Wheaton). If the contractor neglects any part of the bond agreement, clients can file a claim on the bond to receive compensation. 

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