How do contractor bonds work?

A Parma contractor license bond ensures that a contractor complies with applicable licensing and permit laws. When obtaining the $10,000 code compliance bond, the contractor acts as the principal, entering into an agreement with the obligee (the City of Parma) and the surety company. If the contractor breaks the bond agreement, someone may file a claim against their bond. The surety may cover the claim costs upfront, but the contractor must repay them.

To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds offers premiums starting at $100 – and we can often process contractor license bonds instantly!

Frequently Asked Questions

The Parma bond and registration both expire on December 31 annually. Keep these and your insurance certificate updated to remain in good standing with the city.

You may need multiple bonds if your work covers multiple trades (electric and heating, for example). If your work is only in a single trade, you will likely only need a single bond. Verify this with the Parma Building Department or contact ZipBonds with further questions.
