How do contractor license bonds work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients. The contractor signing the bond agreement also promises to abide by all applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Grandview Heights).
Clients can file a claim on the bond if a contractor’s work doesn’t follow the bond agreement completely. The surety will initially pay an approved claim, but the contractor is ultimately responsible for paying back the claim over time.
To obtain your bond, you must pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often issue these bonds immediately, with premiums starting at just $100.
