How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients and follow the standards and regulations set by the obligee (City of Madison). 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

Bonds often have one-year terms. The renewal deadline is typically a specific date each year (e.g., January 1). Remember to renew your bond by the date listed on the bond form and keep your license or permit current to continue operating in your state, city, or county.

A single license bond is usually enough for contractors. The requirements set forth by a municipality typically cover everything you need to work in that city or county. In some cases, however, local and state bonds are both necessary. Read municipality requirements carefully to ensure you’re compliant.
