Columbia County Contractor Bond: Specialty and Surety Bond Amount Required
Columbia County divides contractor into three categories, each with their own surety bond amount:
- Commercial contractors are required to obtain a $20,000 surety bond;
- Residential contractors are required to obtain a $15,000 surety bond;
- Specialty contractors must obtain a $5,000 surety bond.
Premium Required of the Contractor Bond:
Typically, the premium required for this bond will be determined by a standard surety bond application and a credit score.
As a very broad general rule, the premium for this surety bond may cost you as little as:
- $100 annually for the commercial contractor bond;
- $150 annually for the residential contractor bond (even though it is smaller bond, the difference in pricing may be for the calculated risk involved);
- $100 annually for the specialty contractor bond.
However, the price you will be required to pay will be determined by an application and a credit check, in all likelihood.
Columbia County Contractor Bond: Its Purpose
The Columbia County contractor surety bond is not an insurance policy for the contractor.
It is, rather, a financial guarantee that you as a licensed contractor will be in compliance with all county and state rules regulating your professional conduct.
The bond’s existence allows Columbia County and its residents who can credibly show evidence of harm caused by the failure to by statutory and legal rules to file a claim against the bond to recover loss.
The bond’s existence, therefore, is solely for these others.
Any claims paid against your surety bond must be reimbursed in full by you, the owner of the bond; the bond’s principal.
