How do contractor registration bonds work?

A contractor license bond gives clients a guarantee that they will receive quality work from contractors. By signing the bond, contractors agree to work by the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Upper Arlington). 

Clients can file a claim if a contractor doesn’t meet every component of the agreement. The surety will initially pay out any approved claims, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back all approved claims against them. 

ZipBonds can issue bonds quickly, and contractors often only pay $100 for their premiums. Apply for your bond online today by starting the form below or calling us at (888) 435-4191.

Bonds typically expire at the end of each calendar year on December 31. Your bond renewal date will be listed on your bond form.
