How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from faulty construction work. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Waterloo). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement, clients can file claims to receive compensation for their losses.

To obtain your Waterloo surety bond, you’ll pay a premium – a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue many contractor bonds quickly for as low as $100 annually.
