How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to the set standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Billings).
If a contractor breaks their agreement, clients can file a claim on the bond for compensation. The surety may cover the costs of valid claims upfront, but contractors are responsible for repaying the surety in full, up to the full bond amount.
To acquire your bond, you will pay a premium. ZipBonds can often issue contractor license bonds instantly – and premiums start at just $100!
