How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients. By signing the bond agreement, contractors state that they’ll abide by the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Brecksville). Clients can file a claim if a contractor’s work doesn’t meet all components of the agreement.
Approved claims are first paid to clients by the surety, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims in full.
ZipBonds can issue many contractor license bonds instantly – for as low as $100 per year.
