How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects your clients from damages resulting from work failing to meet city standards. The bond guarantees that you abide by all regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Gary). If you break the bond contract terms, a client may file a claim on your bond for compensation.

To obtain a contractor bond in Gary, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue many contractor bonds quickly, often for just $100.
