How does a contractor registration bond work?
A contractor registration bond ensures that contractors fulfill work obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow all standards and regulations of their obligee (Village of Hartville).
Clients can submit a claim for compensation if a contractor breaks the bond agreement. The surety will initially pay out approved claims to clients, but contractors are responsible for paying the surety back over time.
To acquire your bond, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can get many contractors bonded instantly, with premiums starting at $100.
