How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to incomplete or faulty contract work. The bond ensures that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Kentwood) or pay the consequences. If a contractor breaks their bond contract, the injured party can file a claim for compensation. 

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