How do contractor registration bonds work?

When obtaining this bond, the principal (contractor) enters into an agreement with the obligee (Summit County) 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bonds often expire on December 31 each calendar year. Your bond renewal date will be verified on the bond form. Keep your bond, registration, and insurance up to date to remain in good contractor standing.

If you work across multiple trades, you may need a separate bond and registration for each trade. If you have any questions about your bonding needs, contact ZipBonds.
