How do contractor license bonds work?

A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all their obligations to clients. By signing the bond agreement, contractors guarantee that they’ll follow all standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Massillon). 

Clients can submit a claim for compensation if a contractor doesn’t follow the agreement and causes damages. The surety will initially pay out approved claims to clients, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back all claims in full.   

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, or a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds premiums start at just $100 and can often be issued instantly.
