How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to unsatisfactory or unsafe work. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Royal Oak). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement, clients can file a claim for compensation.   

To obtain your contractor bond in Royal Oak, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can issue bonds quickly for as low as $100.
