How does a contractor license bond work?

By signing the bond agreement, contractors promise to follow the standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Omaha). Clients can file a claim on the bond if a contractor’s work fails to meet any part of the agreement. 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 issue many contractor license bonds instantly for as low as $100.

License bonds most often have one-year terms. The specific renewal date will be listed on your bond form. Bonds and licenses need to stay current for you to remain in good standing.

In most cases, contractors only need one license bond to fulfill local requirements. Multiple bonds (often a local and state bond) are occasionally required. Be sure to read your municipality’s conditions carefully to verify local laws.
