At Hunter Insurance Services, we specialize in bonds and insurance protection contractors. We offer a variety of contractor bonds including Performance Bonds, Payment Bonds, Bid Bonds, and License Bonds.
Contractor Performance Bonds
A type of Contract Bond which guarantees that a contractor will adhere to the terms and conditions of a contract according to contract specifications, terms, and conditions. Upon award of a construction contract, the winning bidder submits a Performance Bond. Typically, Performance Bonds and Payment Bonds are issued together, because they are so closely related.
What Do Contractor Performance Bonds Protect?
Construction Performance Bonds prevent financial loss to the project owner in the event that a contractor does not satisfactorily complete the job for which they were contracted. Most contractors are required to provide a performance bond when awarded a large construction contract. Bid Bonds, Payment Bonds, and Performance Bonds are among the most common Contract Bonds on the market.
How Much Do Contractor Performance Bonds Cost?
Contractor Performance Bonds premiums vary for a number of reasons. These reasons can include the construction job’s estimated cost, the contractor’s credit history and financial situation, and the jurisdiction in which the Performance Bond is issued. Contractors with good credit score usually pay a fee ranging from 0.5% to 5% of the bond amount. Some surety companies accept contractors with bad credit, charging a higher fee, typically ranging from 10% to 20% of the bond amount.
