How do contractor bonds work?

A contractor license bond assures clients that they’ll receive satisfactory work from contractors. By signing the bond agreement, contractors ensure they will follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (Village of Moreland Hills). 

Clients can file a claim for compensation if a contractor’s work fails to meet all the agreement standards. To settle the claim, the surety will cover the costs upfront, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims in full – plus fees and interest. 

You will pay a small premium to acquire your contractor bond, a percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds offers premiums starting at $100 and can often get contractors bonded instantly.
