How do contractor license bonds work?

By signing the bond, contractors promise to abide by the standards and regulations of the obligee (Medina County). If a contractor breaks their bond contract, a client can file a claim for any damages. The surety may step in to cover the costs to settle the claim upfront. However, the contractor is ultimately responsible for paying all claim-related expenses – up to the total bond amount.

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, or a percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often process your bond immediately, with premiums starting at $100.
