How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from any damages resulting from faulty work. The bond guarantees that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (South Bend). If a contractor fails to complete any part of the bond agreement, clients can file a claim to receive compensation.

To obtain a contractor bond in South Bend, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can often issue contractor bonds immediately for $100.
