Contract Surety Bonds

With few exceptions, public construction projects on the federal, state or local level require the contractor to provide a bond. The ability to obtain surety bonding is the lifeblood of a construction company, and we serve all types of contractors and specialty trades, as well as service providers and manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors in providing:

  • Performance Bonds – Guarantee that a contractor will perform in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract.
  • Payment Bonds – Guarantee that a contractor will pay its subcontractors and materials suppliers.
  • Bid Bonds – Assure that a bid for a contract has been submitted in good faith and that a contractor will enter into a contract at the price bid and provide required performance and payment bonds.
  • Site Improvement Bonds – Guarantee the completion of public improvements in accordance with governmental ordinances when required in conjunction with the construction of or improvements to a commercial building.

  • License & Permit Bonds – Typically low bond penalty amounts – required by governmental entities in connection with a license or permit to operate a business.
  • Public Official Bonds – Required by local or state statutes that set the bond amount – commonly required for Treasurers, Tax Collectors, Municipal Clerks and School Administrators.
  • Judicial/Fiduciary (Court) Bonds – Required when an individual must act in the capacity of another person – commonly required for an executor or administrator of an estate, guardian of a minor or incompetent and court appointed trustees.
