How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to faulty contractor work. The bond ensures that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Alexandria). If a contractor breaks the bond contract, any party that suffers damages can file a claim to receive compensation.

To obtain your contractor 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.
