How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages resulting from insufficient contractor work. The bond guarantees that contractors fulfill all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Clear Lake). If a contractor fails to meet the bond agreement in any way, a client can file a claim for compensation.

To obtain your contractor bond in Clear Lake, you’ll pay a premium, a percentage of the total bond amount. ZipBonds can get you bonded quickly at a typical premium of just $100.
