How do contractor license bonds work?

A contractor license bond guarantees that a contractor (the principal in the bond contract) completes work in accordance with local laws. This may include adhering to building codes, paying taxes, and fulfilling other contractual obligations. If a contractor in Sidney breaks their bond agreement, they may face costly claims.

To acquire your surety bond, you do not need to pay the entire bond amount. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond. ZipBonds issues many contractor license bonds quickly for as little as $100. Apply online today!
