How does a contractor license bond work?

The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (Tippecanoe County). If the contractor fails to complete any part of the bond agreement, clients can file a claim to receive compensation for any damages.

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