How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients and the public from damages due to faulty construction work. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Indianola). If a contractor fails to follow the conditions of the agreement, the injured party can file a claim to receive compensation.

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