How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all their obligations to clients. By signing the bond agreement, contractors state that they will follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Chardon).
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 issue many contractor license bonds instantly, with premiums starting at $100.
