Michigan Contractor License Bonds

Many Michigan cities and jurisdictions require contractors to be bonded. Do you need a Michigan contractor's license bond to work in the state legally? Read on to find out!

How Does Contractor License Bond In Michigan Work?

A Michigan contractors license bond is a surety bond that guarantees the contractor's work will abide by all applicable laws and regulations. If the city, state, or customer fears corners have been cut or the contractor violated regulations, they can file a claim against the bond. The surety company that underwrites the bond investigates all claims. If the investigation finds fraud or unsafe practices, they pay the claim up to the bond's full value. If they instead side with the contractor, the claim is dismissed.
