Contractor License or Permit Bond
Contractor License or Permit Bond InformationContractor License Bonds are required by most states to guarantee that a general contractor will operate their business in compliance with the rules and regulations pertaining to their specific contractor license. Ultimately, these bonds exist to protect the public from fraudulent practices or from being ripped off by a contractor. All Commercial Surety offers numerous Contractor License Bonds, also referred to as CLB, programs designed to get all types of contractors approved at excellent rates, in all 50 states. It is important to understand that Contractor License Bonds are NOT the same as Bid and Performance Bonds, which is a common misconception. They guarantee the compliance with a state or local contractor’s license, where as most performance bonds guarantee that obligations of a contract are fulfilled. Frequently asked questions:
