How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to a contractor failing to fulfill the terms of the bond agreement. The bond guarantees that contractors abide by all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Lafayette). If the contractor fails to follow any of the guidelines in the bond contract, clients can file a claim to receive compensation for their losses.

To obtain a contractor bond in Lafayette, you’ll pay a premium – a small percentage of the required bond amount. ZipBonds can issue many contractor bonds quickly, at a typical premium of $100.
