How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages due to work that’s lacking in some way. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Pittsfield). If the contractor doesn’t follow the bond agreement in their work, clients can file a claim to receive compensation for their losses.  

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