How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that clients receive satisfactory work from their contractors. By posting the bond, contractors agree to follow all the standards and regulations of the obligee (Cuyahoga County). Clients can file a claim against the bond if their contractor breaks the bond agreement in any way. The surety will initially pay out approved claims, but contractors are responsible for paying back claims over a set period.
ZipBonds offers contractor license bond premiums starting at $100. We often issue these bonds instantly without requiring a credit check.
