How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors follow all work obligations to clients. In signing the bond, contractors also agree to follow applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Bexley).
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.
To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often get you bonded instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bonds typically last a year before needing to be renewed. To avoid any fines, ensure your bond, permit, and license (where applicable) remain up to date by renewing them before they expire.
A single license bond is usually required of contractors. If you work in multiple trades, however, you may need a separate bond for each trade.
