Why are Alabama contractors bonded?

Professional contractors work in the high-risk construction industry, which can pose many different types of liability issues, such as legal, quality, and financial risks. Contractor license bonds are used to guarantee that contractors will obey the laws of the industry and follow state regulations. Should a contractor fail to do this, the affected party can make a claim against the contractor’s surety bond to receive compensation for any resulting losses. For several cities in Alabama, we offer contractor license bonds for contractors of all types. We can get you the bond you need quickly, easily, and accurately.

More specifically, contractor bonds in Alabama are put in place to ensure that principals (contractors) complete construction work in accordance with the laws of the city/state. This includes adhering to all building codes, paying all taxes that become due, and more. These bonds protect the city/state and/or any individual who is harmed as a result of the principal’s noncompliance from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

All Alabama contractor bonds have unique terms, so applicants should be sure they understand the fine print of their surety bond contracts during the bonding and licensing processes.

Take the first step toward becoming licensed in Alabama by purchasing the contractor bond you need quickly, easily and accurately!
