How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors meet all client obligations. In signing the bond agreement, contractors agree to follow all applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Wahoo).
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 total bond amount.
To obtain your bond, you will pay a premium. ZipBonds can often issue these bonds instantly, at premiums starting at just $100.
