How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors meet all obligations to their clients. By signing the bond agreement, contractors ensure they’ll abide by the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Missoula). 

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.

ZipBonds can often issue these bonds very quickly for premium rates as low as $100.
