How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond holds contractors responsible for fulfilling all obligations of their proposed work and following the standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Richland). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work is deemed faulty or insufficient. Approved claims are paid out by the surety company initially, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back the claim up to the full bond amount.

To acquire your surety bond, you’ll pay a premium (a small percentage of the penal sum). ZipBonds offers premiums as low as $100 and often issues contractor license bonds instantly.
