Surety Bonds

Pre-Qualification Letters

Pre-qualification letters can help you secure jobs. These letters are given to prospective employers to vouch for your business and your work.

Bid Bonds

Bid bonds protect owners, assuring them that if they secure a contract with you you’d be obligated to finish the work or payout.

Maintenance Bonds

Maintenance bonds are insurance policies that ensure the contractor will resolve any defects that may arise, free of charge or you will be compensated.

Contractors Surety Bonds

The key purpose of contractor’s surety bonds is to assure any owner who contracts you that they will be covered financially if you cannot finish the work.

Offer Clients Peace of Mind with Contractor Surety Bonds

In general, all surety bonds involve three parties. The insurance provider (surety), the contractor (you), and the owner (the business or individual that you will be doing work for). Most surety bonds focus on having the surety guarantee the owner that if you fail to deliver on your contract, the surety will reimburse the owner for any financial losses. Surety bonds can also include guarantees that the contractor will be legally obligated to amend any at-fault issues that eventuate from their work once the job is complete.

What Is the Process of Getting a Surety Bond?

The process of getting a surety bond is straightforward. You must first determine the dollar amount you need. Next, you file an application with our company and discuss your premium cost for the bond. After a premium has been determined, we will give you a copy of the bond agreement, and you will be required to pay your premiums. You will receive a signed copy of the agreement and an original copy of the bond with a Power-of-Attorney from the Surety.

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost?

Your surety bond cost is determined by the type of bond you require. Each surety bond has its own unique cost structure. However, bonds typically run between 1% and 15% of the bond’s total value. If you work in an industry with elevated risks, such as construction, you may require a higher bond value.

How Long Does It Take for My Surety Bond to Be Approved?

Again, this heavily depends on the type of bond you need. In some cases, the process can be only a few minutes. More complicated bonds can take several days to attain.

Do I Need Collateral for a Surety Bond?

Collateral is not typically required, but this depends on the risks and specific circumstances related to the bond you are requesting.

Can Clients File Claims Against My Surety Bond?

Because of the nature of surety bonds, it’s rare to have a “claim” against them. Surety companies typically have different options to indemnify the contractor if an issue arises.
