How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors fulfill their obligations to clients. When contractors sign the bond agreement, they promise to uphold the standards and regulations of the obligee (the City of Coon Rapids). In cases of faulty or insufficient contractor work, clients can submit a claim to cover any damages. The surety initially pays out claims, but contractors are ultimately responsible for repaying them in full.

You don’t have to pay the full bond to obtain your contractor license bond. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, which is a small percentage of the bond. ZipBonds offers many contractor bonds for just $100 and can issue them instantly – without pulling credit information.
