How does a contractor license bond work?

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

To acquire and maintain your contractor bond in Hagerstown, you’ll pay an annual premium (a small percentage of the bond amount). ZipBonds can issue these bonds quickly, at a typical premium of $100.
