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 Detroit). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement fully, clients can file a claim for compensation.   

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