How does a contractor license bond work?
Contractor license bonds protect clients from damages resulting from contractor work that fails to meet set standards. The bond guarantees that contractors follow all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the Village of Winfield). If the contractor neglects part of the bond agreement, a client can file a claim on the bond to receive compensation for damages.
To obtain a contractor bond in Winfield, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue contractor bonds quickly, at a typical premium of $100.
