What Is A Contractors Bond?

A contractor's bond is an agreement between two entities. When you are the contractor, the surety bond obligates you to complete your work according to the terms of the contract. If you fail to complete the project, the bond obligates the surety to make good on your contractual obligations to the project owner. Contractors' bonds are required on all forms of construction. This includes residential, commercial, and industrial projects and infrastructure projects such as highways, bridges, and buildings.

The types of contractor bonds include the following:

  • Building Contractor's Bond - A building contractor's bond protects the project's owner, including the building or renovating of structures such as homes and commercial buildings.
  • Concrete Contractor's Bond - A concrete contractor's bond covers the use of concrete in projects such as sidewalks and foundation slabs.
  • Demolition Contractor's Bond - A demolition contractor's bond covers the destruction of existing structures such as buildings.

Contractor's Liability Insurance

The contractor's bond is a type of liability insurance. It protects the project owner if a contractor fails to complete the project or perform the required work according to the terms of the contract. It also protects the customers or owners from the contractor's failure to provide a product or service described in the bid or contract. When you complete your project and win the offer, you must provide proof of contractor liability insurance or a contractor's bond. This protects the person or company that hired you to do the work if you fail to complete the project or if you perform the work improperly.

How Much Does a South Carolina Contractor's Bond Cost?

The contractor's bond premium amount depends on the size of the project, your experience and credit rating, and the amount of coverage required by the project owner. The bonding company determines the cost of a contractor's bond. South Carolina Department of Labor regulations requires that a contractor's bond be issued within ten days of the contractor's bid being accepted. The value of the project determines the bond amount. You will have to provide proof of contractor's liability insurance and a surety bond. After the project owner accepts your bid and the contract is signed, you will have ten days to apply for a surety bond. The surety bond is used to guarantee that you will meet the terms of the contract and complete the project.

Why is an SC Contractor's Bond Required?

A contractor's bond (also known as a surety bond) is a form of insurance that guarantees that you will perform the work according to the contract and meet contractual obligations. A contractor's bond is a promise that you will do what you promised to do. The contractor's bond ensures that the general contractor or subcontractor will complete the project according to the terms stated in their contract. It also protects the project owner if the contractor fails to complete or performs the work improperly. If you fail to meet or perform the work according to the terms of the contract or bond, the project's owner can file a claim against your contractor's bond. The owner will receive compensation from the surety company that issued the bond.

Disputing Breach Claims on a Small Contractor's Bond

If you dispute a breach of contract claim, you are entitled to a hearing before the surety company that issued your contractor's bond. You may also employ the services of an attorney or dispute resolution company. To dispute a breach of contract or claim, you must prove the claim is false. If the contractor fails to complete the project or perform the work according to the contract and bond, the project owner can file a breach of contract claim against the contractor's bond. However, if the contractor disputes the claim and provides evidence of the violation, the owner may be forced to withdraw the declaration. If you deny the breach of contract claim and successfully prove that the owner's claim is false, the owner will likely start the claim against your contractor's bond.

Who Can Help With Your SC Contractor's Bond?

If you are bidding on a project and are required to post a contractor's bond, you will have to find a surety bond company to issue a bond for a contractor.

Conclusion

When you bid on a project, you may be asked to post a contractor's bond as a guarantee that you will meet the terms of the contract. The contractor's bond protects the project's owner if you fail to complete or perform the work according to the agreement. The contractor's bond is required on all forms of construction, and it can be obtained through a surety bond company.
