Let’s take a closer look at some of our services.
Construction bonds are not just known as construction bonds, but contract bonds. These are a type of surety bond that will represent an important form of insurance for those in the construction world. Construction work cannot be undertaken without a surety bond and these provide a secure financial guarantee that the costs of your construction project will be covered.
The issuing company of the bond has to guarantee the completion of the work and they do this with specific contractors. The idea is to protect you against bogus work, which is very much a risk! It’s a good business practice to ensure that you have the right construction bonds at all times. You are in charge of your project and if you don’t have construction bonds in place before work commences, you need to consider that you will lose a lot of money as a result of bad working practices.
At Pinnacle Surety, there’s a reason we’ve been chosen to be a part of the Merchants Bonding Company’s 2020 Surety Elite – we offer a 24-hour turnaround on our bond program pre-qualifications. We also offer the same service on approval for bid bonds. Unlike other agencies, we only focus on bonding and our experience covers 25 years! Our bid bonds are required of a contractor by a project owner, and it acts as a guarantee that the bidder will be in the contract if awarded the job. The bond also stipulates that the contractor will gain performance and payment bonds to support their contract.
Performance bonds and payment bonds are usually required to be together for a construction project. Payment bonds are legally binding and the surety guarantees to the project owner that a contractor will pay everything due to subcontractors and laborers. Payment bonds are also known as labor and material bonds and the amount cannot be less than the penal sum of performance bonds. These bonds are required by law on almost all work projects.
These are the most common bonds that are required on construction-related projects. These are legally binding where a surety guarantees the obligee and a contractor meets all the terms and conditions that have been set forth in a contract. These are often required by the owner of the project as these will protect them from any financial losses. If the contractor doesn’t pay for the job, the surety performance bond will cover it. A performance bond on a private company will protect the company and its shareholders/investors from any costs that have arisen because of failure by the contractor.
There are some cases where a performance bond will be required from a subcontractor. It’s a wise business practice, and projects are sublet to bid and are given to the lowest contractor. A large bond is needed during this bid process, as this acts as a security blanket to the project owner.
