How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors follow all applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Bowling Green). Clients can file a claim for compensation if a contractor breaks their bond agreement in any way. The surety will initially cover the costs to settle the claim, but contractors are responsible for paying them back in full.  

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium. ZipBonds can often get you bonded instantly for as little as $100 per year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bonds typically last a year before requiring renewal. To avoid any fines, ensure your bond and license stay up to date.

You may need to post one bond per trade if you work in multiple trades. Otherwise, you will most likely only need one bond.
