Types of Bonds

Project developers might require a number of different construction bond types throughout the duration of a project to ensure it’s completed according to contract, including:

  • Bid Bonds: Designed to reassure project developers that contractors have the financial credentials necessary to accept the job.
  • Performance Bonds: Guarantee that in the event of a developer or contractor’s default, funds are available to finish the construction. Federally funded projects worth $100,000 or more require a performance bond.
  • Payment Bond: Guarantee proper payment for services in the event lead contractors go bankrupt when working on projects. The bond amount can be used to reimburse suppliers, subcontractors and others who worked on a project if the lead contractor is unable to pay them for their work.
  • Supply Bonds: Guarantee faithful performance of a contract to furnish supplies or materials. If the supplier fails to provide the supplies as agreed, the bond amount can be used to reimburse the purchaser for the resulting loss.
  • Maintenance Bonds: Required after construction to protect against design defects and/or failures in workmanship. If the project is found to be defective during this time, the bond amount can be used to pay for repairs.
  • Subdivision Bonds: These require contractors to build and/or renovate public structures within subdivisions – such as streets, sidewalks and waste management systems – according to local specifications. If a contractor fails to do so, the bond amount can be used to complete the subdivision project appropriately.
  • Site Improvement Bonds: Guarantee the completion of certain improvements made to projects; typically used for renovation projects that update older structures or other existing properties.
  • Contractor License Bonds. Contractors must purchase these bonds before they can receive their contractor’s licenses at the state, county and/or city level. These bonds ensure that contractors follow all applicable licensing laws and regulations.
