How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for fulfilling their client obligations. In signing the bond agreement, contractors promise to follow all standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Scottsbluff). 

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 contractor bonds instantly for as low as $100.
