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 meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Madison Heights). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement, clients can file a claim for compensation.

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