Construction Surety Bond Types
Bid bonds make sure that contractors submit serious bid proposals. These bonds reassure project developers that bidders have the financial credentials necessary to accept the job. If a bid is selected and the contractor declines the job or retracts the bid, the project developer can make a claim on the bond to recoup the difference between that bid and the next-highest bid.
Performance bonds guarantee that contractors complete projects according to contractual terms. If a contractor fails to do so, the project developer can make a claim on the bond to access funds that can be used to pay a second contractor to finish the job. The Federal Miller Act requires that performance bonds be used on all federally funded projects worth $100,000 or more.
Payment bonds guarantee proper payment for services in case lead contractors go bankrupt when working on projects. The bond amount can be used to reimburse suppliers, subcontractors and others who worked on a project if the lead contractor is unable to pay them for their work. The Federal Miller Act requires that payment bonds be used on all federally funded projects worth $100,000 or more. In fact, these bonds are frequently issued in conjunction with performance bonds.
Supply bonds mandate that suppliers provide materials, equipment and/or supplies as defined in purchase orders. If the supplier fails to provide the supplies as agreed, the bond amount can be used to reimburse the purchaser for the resulting loss.
Maintenance bonds guarantee against defective materials and workmanship for a specific time period following a project's completion. If the project is found to be defective during this time, the bond amount can be used to pay for repairs that need to be made as a result.
Subdivision bonds require contractors to build and/or renovate public structures within subdivisions - such as streets, sidewalks and waste management systems - according to local specifications. If a contractor fails to do so, the bond amount can be used to complete the subdivision project appropriately.
Contractor License Bond
Even though they're actually a type of license and permit bond, contractor license bonds are often mistakenly grouped in with contract bonds since they're used by construction professionals. Contractors must purchase these bonds before they can receive their contractor’s licenses with a state, county and/or city. These bonds ensure that a contractor will follow all applicable licensing laws and regulations.
