How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for fulfilling all obligations listed under their work contract. In signing the bond agreement, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Joplin). 

Clients can file a claim for compensation if a contractor’s work is faulty or insufficient. The surety company initially pays out approved claims, but contractors are responsible for paying back the claim up to the bond amount.

ZipBonds issues many contractor license bonds instantly for as little as $100.
