Contract Surety Bonds

Contract surety bonds provide financial security and construction assurance on building and construction projects. They guarantee to the project owner (obligee) that the contractor (principal) is qualified to perform the work and will pay certain subcontractors, laborers, and material suppliers. If the contractor defaults, the surety guarantees that the obligations will be met.
