How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all obligations to their clients. If a contractor breaks their bond contract, clients can file a claim on the bond for compensation. If the claim is valid, the surety will step in to settle the claim upfront. The contractor must later repay the surety in full. 

ZipBonds often issues contractor bonds instantly for as low as $100 a year.
