How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors fulfill all obligations to their clients. By signing the bond contract, contractors promise to follow the standards and regulations of their obligee (St. Charles County). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work doesn’t meet all components of the agreement.
To acquire your bond, you will pay a premium (a small percentage of the penal sum). ZipBonds often issues these bonds instantly for as low as $100 per year.
