How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages due to faulty work. The bond guarantees that contractors follow all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (The City of Indianapolis). If the contractor breaks the bond agreement, the injured party can file a claim against the bond.

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