Contractors specializing in certain professions within Jefferson County, Alabama, must be licensed and provide evidence of a $5,000 surety bond.
Our agency provides this surety bond for the following contracting professions:
The required surety bond will comprise the quickest part of your licensing process.
Every applicant for any of the Jefferson County contractor license bond is automatically approved. For this surety bond there is neither an underwriter review nor a credit inquiry.
After completion of an application (which can be done with an agent over the phone) and payment of the premium - $100 – this bond is issued to you immediately.
After issuance a copy of the surety bond can be emailed to you for no additional charge. The original surety bond --- which you will sign as Principal --- will be sent to you by the following business day.
Additional Premium Prepayment Options
The Jefferson County contractor surety bond, at a $100 premium, is active for one year. Thereafter the bond must be renewed as a condition of licensing.
Our agency offers you the ability to prepay your bond for 2 or 3 years. Doing so, while entirely up to you, does two things. The first is that it lengthens the time between renewal of your bond; the second is that it offers you a savings over annual renewal of your bond and premium.
The prepayment options are as follows:
Regardless of your contracting specialty, the surety bond is a financial guarantee that you will be in compliance with all regulations governing plumbing, gas fitting, or that of electricians. The bond holds the County of Jefferson harmless for the failure to comply with any statutes or building regulations, which in turn, causes harm.
As principal of this bond you must indemnify the surety for any fees paid against your bond.
