How do contractor license bonds work?
A contractor license bond ensures that clients receive quality work from their contractors. By signing the bond, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Maple Heights). Clients can file a claim if a contractor fails to follow the agreement in any capacity. If a claim is valid, the surety may cover the costs to settle it upfront. However, contractors are ultimately responsible for repaying them in full over time.
To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds offers premiums for as low as $100 and can often process bonds instantly.
