How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (i.e., the IKORCC). If a contractor fails in any way to follow the bond agreement, clients can file a claim to receive compensation for their losses.

To obtain your contractor bond in the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio region, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds can issue your bond quickly, at a typical rate of 1-3% of the bond amount. Therefore, a $25,000 bond can cost as little as $250.
