The Purpose of Your Surety Bond
This contractor license and permit bond is not an insurance contract. The bond protects the city of Birmingham and its residents from plumbing and gas fitter work which is substandard and deficient.
The bond also serves as a guarantee that all excavation done in connection with your work will be repaired to acceptable standards and that you will be responsible for any damages caused by your work for one year subsequent to the completion of the work performed.
