How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients and the public from damages resulting from faulty contracting work. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (Mason City). If a contractor fails to meet the conditions of the bond, any party that suffers losses can file a claim to receive compensation.

To obtain your contractor bond in Mason City, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue these bonds quickly at a typical premium of $100 due to the simple underwriting.
