How does a water well driller bond work?

A well driller bond protects clients by ensuring that contractors fulfill all obligations in their work. By signing the bond form, contractors promise to follow all applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (North Dakota). 

Clients can file a claim if a contractor’s work fails to meet any part of the agreement. The surety will initially pay out approved claims, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims in full.  

ZipBonds offers well driller bond premiums starting as low as $100. Due to the simple underwriting, we often issue these bonds instantly.
