How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable by ensuring they meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (Town of Shrewsbury). If the contractor breaks the bond agreement and costs another party money, that party can file a claim to receive compensation.  

Due to the simple underwriting, ZipBonds often issues these bonds instantly for just $100.
