How does a contractor license bond work?

A license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages due to faulty work. The bond ensures that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Walker). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement, clients can file a claim to receive compensation if they suffer losses.

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