How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill their client obligations. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Gladstone). If a contractor’s work doesn’t meet contract stipulations, clients can file a claim for compensation. 

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, or a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often issue license bonds instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.
