Why do I need an Ohio contractor bond?

Various cities and counties in Ohio require contractors to post surety bonds for their specific license classification prior to becoming a licensed contractor.

Contractor bonds in Ohio are put in place to ensure that principals (contractors) complete construction work in accordance with the laws of the city/state such as adhering to all building codes and paying taxes as when they are due. Typically, these bonds protect the city/state and/or any individual who is harmed from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond as a result of the principal’s noncompliance. When a claim is filed, the principal is ultimately financially liable. Although the surety may step in to pay the claimant in a timely manner, the principal is required to reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

All Ohio contractor bonds have unique terms, so applicants should be sure they understand the specific requirements of their surety bond contracts during the bonding and licensing processes.

Whether you are an electrical contractor in Columbus or an HVAC contractor in Cleveland, the best way to find out exactly how much you’ll pay for your Ohio contractor license bond is to submit a bond request now!

Take the first step toward becoming licensed in Ohio by purchasing the contractor bond you need quickly, easily and accurately!

Requirements to become a licensed Ohio contractor

There are no statewide requirements to become a licensed contractor in Ohio. Instead, contractor license requirements differ based on city and county as well as what type of work you will be doing. The first step in becoming a licensed contractor will be determining what kind of license you will need. For example, you may need a general contractor license for one type of work and a home improvement contractor license for another.

Once this is determined you will need to access the contractor license application forms specific to the city or county in which you are applying. Some of the most common requirements among municipalities are a certificate of liability insurance, a state or federal license for the trade, worker’s compensation insurance and proper identification. See below for links to specific requirements based on your location.
