How does a contractor license bond work?

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

To obtain your contractor bond in Eldridge, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the total bond amount. ZipBonds can issue these bonds quickly, at a typical premium of $100.
