How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from inadequate work performance. The bond stipulates that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Johnston). If a contractor fails to meet the conditions of the agreement, their clients may file a claim to receive compensation for their losses.

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