How do contractor bonds work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that clients will receive quality work from their contractors. By signing the bond agreement, contractors agree to work according to the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of North Ridgeville).
Clients may file a claim for compensation if their contractor’s work fails to meet any of the listed standards. The surety will then cover the costs to settle a valid claim upfront, but the contractor is responsible for paying back the claim in full, up to the bond limit.
You’ll pay a premium to acquire your bond, which will be a small percentage of the penal sum. Our premiums start at $100, and we often issue bonds instantly.
