How does a contractor bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill their work obligations to clients. By signing the bond, contractors state that they will follow all standards and regulations of the obligee (Hocking County). Clients can submit a compensation claim if a contractor breaks the agreement. The surety will initially pay out approved claims, but contractors must pay back these claims over a set period, plus fees and interest.
To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium – a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds often issues these bonds quickly, starting at just $100 per year.
