How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages resulting from deficient contractor work. The bond ensures that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Minneapolis). If the contractor breaks their bond contract, clients can file a claim for compensation.
