How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees contractors fulfill all obligations of their proposed work. Through the bond agreement, contractors must follow the standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Tupelo). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work is faulty or insufficient. The surety company pays out approved claims, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back the claim – up to the full bond amount.

ZipBonds offers premiums as low as $100 for many contractor license bonds.
