How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees clients that their contractors will fulfill all work obligations. By signing the bond, contractors agree to abide by all standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Aurora). 

Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor breaks any part of the bond agreement. The surety first pays out approved claims, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims up to the full bond amount. 

ZipBonds offers premiums starting at $100 – and can often approve bond applications instantly.
