Who needs a contractor bond in Winnetka, IL?
The Village of Winnetka doesn’t have its own contractor licensing program. The village accepts licenses issued by the State of Illinois or other municipalities that test licensees. Electrical, plumbing, roofing, and irrigation contractors must have a copy of their current license on file or supply it before permit issuance.
Before issuing a permit, Winnetka mandates that all contractors and subcontractors must obtain a license and permit bond of $20,000. You must file this bond with the Department of Community Development.
Call ZipBonds at (888) 435-4191 to apply for the bond you need, and we can file it with the Department for you. You can also visit our page on contractor license bonds in Illinois to ensure you fulfill any state-specific bonding requirements.

How does a contractor license bond work?
Contractor license bonds protect a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from work failing to meet state or city building standards. The bond guarantees that contractors abide by all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the Village of Winnetka). 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 Winnetka, you must pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue contractor bonds quickly, often for just $100 annually.
