How does a contractor registration bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill their work obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors guarantee they will follow all standards and regulations set by the obligee (Grove City).
Clients can file a claim if a contractor’s work fails to meet the terms of the agreement. Then the surety will cover costs to settle the claim upfront. However, contractors are always responsible for paying the surety back in full.
ZipBonds offers contractor license bond premiums starting as low as $100. We don’t require a credit check for these bonds and can often approve and issue them instantly.
