How do contractor license bonds work?
A contractor license bond guarantees clients that contractors will work according to the standards and regulations of the obligee (Mahoning County). Clients can file a compensatory claim if a contractor fails to follow their bond contract. The surety may step in to settle the claim upfront, but contractors are responsible for reimbursing them in full – plus paying additional fees and interest.
To acquire your bond, you will pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds premiums start at just $100, and we can often process your bond immediately.
