A surety bond is an agreement between the Principal (the contractor filing the payment & performance bonds), an Obligee (the project owner requiring the bonds), and a surety company that financially backs the bond. Though payment & performance bonds are generally issued at the same time, they cover two separate agreements:

Payment bonds guarantee that the lead contractor will pay all of their subcontractors, suppliers, agents, and laborers for their work and materials. If the contractor fails to do so, the surety company will cover the initial payments, at which point the bondholder will be required to fully repay the surety company for all damages.

Performance bonds guarantee that the contractor will complete the work agreed to in the project contract. In the event that the contractor fails to complete the project as agreed, the surety will cover all financial damages to the Obligee, at which point the Principal must repay the surety company.

A surety bond is NOT an insurance policy for the contractor; it does not protect the Principal against financial damages in the event that they fail to fulfill their contractual obligations. Instead, it protects the Obligee in the event that the contractor refuses or is unable to complete the work.

A performance bond protects a project owner against any financial damages that may arise as a result of the bonded contractor failing to fulfill their contractual obligations in a timely manner.
A payment bond protects all subcontractors, suppliers, laborers, and agents of the bonded contractor against non-payment for work completed or materials supplied.
You are required to file these bonds if the project owner has required it as part of your job contract. Most, if not all, government contracts (local, state, or federal) require performance and payment bonds to be posted before work can begin.
These performance and payment bonds are variable based on a combination of the project cost and a credit check. Begin your application today for a free quote.
