How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors will fulfill obligations to their clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Springfield). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work doesn’t meet one or more of the agreement’s stipulations. 

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