How do contractor license bonds work?

A contractor license bond provides clients with the assurance that they’ll receive satisfactory work from contractors. By posting the bond, contractors promise to work by the standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Sylvania). 

Clients can file a claim if a contractor fails to meet any component of the agreement. The surety will initially pay out an approved claim, but contractors are responsible for paying back all such claims against them over time. 

You’ll pay a premium to acquire your bond, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds often issues these bonds instantly for premiums starting at just $100.

Frequently Asked Questions

As long as your project(s) continues, you must keep your bond active. The bond renewal date often aligns with the registration renewal, which is December 31 in Sylvania. You can verify your bond renewal date on the bond form. 

If your work in Sylvania covers multiple bondable trades (sidewalk construction and sewer tapping, for instance), you may need a separate bond and registration for each. Read your municipality requirements carefully and contact ZipBonds with any further questions.
