How does a contractor bond work?
Contractor license bonds protect clients from damages resulting from contractor work that is lacking in some way. The bond guarantees that contractors follow applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (listed as “the County of Will” in the contractor registration). If the contractor fails to follow any part of the bond agreement, clients may file a claim on the bond for compensation.
To obtain a contractor bond in Illinois, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue many types of contractor license bonds quickly for just $100.
