Contract Surety Bonds

Contract surety bonds are perhaps the most quickly recognized category when one thinks of surety.  These bonds typically include bid, performance, and payment bonds required of construction (and, yes, even non-construction related) endeavors.  Think: High rise buildings.

  • Arborists and Landscaping Companies;
  • Electronics Installation Companies;

General Underwriting Procedures

For contract surety, our agency favors applicants and businesses who can show that they are well-established and demonstrably financially healthy entities.

To that end, while underwriting guidelines will depend on the category and type of contract surety business and bond required, we are typically looking for the following:

  • A full copy of the Contract or RFP (Request for Proposal), bid or proposal documents;
  • A completed questionnaire;
  • Audited CPA prepared financial statements for the last 2, and preferably, 3 years;
  • Personal financial statements of all owners of the company;
  • Resumes of officers and key personnel in your company;
  • Healthy business and personal credit standings;
  • What you anticipate our single and aggregate bond capacity will be;
  • (If requested) Any details of surety bond needs in the past.

Our goal as a surety bonds agency is to provide you with the contract surety bond required.  We would like to also earn and help you meet your other contract surety, and, if ever applicable, commercial and/or court related surety bond requirements.
