Westfield Contract Surety Bonds
Understanding contract surety bonds
- Contract surety bonds are generally used for the guaranteeing of construction contracts and the supply of furnishings and materials.
- There are three parties involved with a contract bond: the project owner, a contractor and a surety.
- The surety guarantees the project owner that the contractor will fulfill its obligations as outlined within the written contract.
- As a contractor, your surety provider may play various roles, including advisor, advocate, and conflict manager.
Common types of Contract Bonds
A bond that guarantees performance of the terms of a written contract. It protects the owner from financial loss should the contractor fail to perform the contract in accordance with its terms and conditions.
A bond that ensures that the contractor will pay specified subcontractors, laborers, and materials suppliers associated with the project.
A bond that offers protection in the event of faulty or defective materials, even after a project’s completion for a specified time period (similar to a warranty).
A bond that ensures a bidder for a supply or construction contract will enter into the contract within the stipulated timeframe if the company wins the bid.
A bond that ensures a supplier will produce the supplies or materials specified in the contract. If the supplier were to default, the bond protects the purchaser from any losses.
