How do contractor bonds work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that clients receive quality work from hired contractors. By signing the bond agreement, contractors agree to work by the standards and regulations of their obligee (City of Goodlettsville).
Clients may file a claim if a contractor breaks their surety contract. The surety will initially pay out a claim if approved, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying the surety back in full for all associated costs.
You will pay a premium, or a percentage of the bond amount, to acquire your bond. ZipBonds can often get you bonded immediately, and premiums start as low as $100 a year.

The bond amount is the highest dollar value a client can receive from a bonded contractor. However, if work-related damages exceed that amount, clients may seek other forms of compensation.
