How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all their obligations to their clients and follow the standards and regulations set by the obligee (City of Byram). If a contractor’s work is faulty or insufficient, clients can submit a claim to receive compensation for damages. The surety initially pays out approved claims, but contractors must later repay them up to the full bond amount. 

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Only a single license bond is required of contractors in most cases. The requirements set forth by a municipality usually cover what you need to work in that city or county. However, you may also need a state bond in some situations. Read municipality requirements carefully to ensure you’re meeting all requirements.

Typically, a bond is active for one year and must be renewed annually by a specific date. Renew your bond by the date listed on your bond form each year to maintain compliance in your area and remain in good standing.
