How do contractor registration bonds work?
When obtaining this bond, the principal (contractor) enters into an agreement with the obligee (City of Strongsville) and the surety company. A contractor license bond guarantees that the bonded contractor complies with applicable licensing and permit laws. If they don’t, any parties that suffer as a result can file a claim against the bond for compensation. The surety company may initially cover any damages incurred, but the principal must later repay them in full.
These bonds are quickly issued and typically cost only $100. Get bonded today by filling out the form below.
