Who needs a contractor license bond in Cabarrus County, North Carolina?

All building contractors working in Cabarrus County must obtain a permit before beginning work. Contractors must pay permit fees at the time of application unless a performance security bond is posted. In the latter case, the Public Safety Services Department bills the contractor applicant for the permit. 

Bond and permit fees are set on a case-by-case basis. Building contractors must submit plans and specifications of their proposed work along with the permit application to the Public Safety Services Department. Multiple inspections may be necessary while building work is being performed.

How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (Cabarrus County). 

Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor’s work fails to meet any part of the bond agreement. The surety initially pays out approved claims, but contractors must ultimately pay back these claims in full, up to the total bond amount. 

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can instantly issue contractor license bonds to contractors for as low as $100.
