How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to insufficient contractor work. The bond guarantees that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Gaithersburg). If the contractor breaks the bond agreement, clients can file a claim against the bond to receive compensation.

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