How does a contractor bond work?

A contractor license bond gives clients a guarantee that they’ll receive satisfactory work from their contractors. By signing the bond agreement, contractors ensure that they’ll work according to the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Warren). Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor doesn’t meet all components of the agreement. 

The surety initially pays out approved claims, but contractors are responsible for paying back approved claims over time, up to the total bond amount. 

ZipBonds can often process contractor bonds instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.
