How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures contractors fulfill all obligations to their clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Sikeston). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work doesn’t meet all parts of the agreement. The surety will settle claims upfront, but contractors must repay them in full.

ZipBonds often issues contractor license bonds instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.
