How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for fulfilling all obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to work according to the standards and regulations of the obligee (Stanly 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 offer premiums starting at $100 and often issues these bonds instantly.
