How does a contractor bond work?
Contractor license bonds ensure that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of their obligee (City of Wickliffe). The bond is a safeguard for clients.
The contractor acts as the principal in the bond contract. The bond guarantees a client compensation if the contractor breaks licensing and permit laws that result in damages. The surety may cover any costs to settle a bond claim upfront, but the contractor is ultimately responsible for paying back the surety over time.
To acquire their bond, contractors don’t need to pay the full amount. They will instead pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can issue these bonds quickly for just $100.
