How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all their obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Greensboro). 

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 frequently issues these bonds instantly for just $100.
