What is the purpose of the Alaska construction contractor bond?

Alaska Administrative Code Statute 08.18.071 requires contractor license applicants file a surety bond when applying for a certificate of registration. The bond specifically requires contractors to fulfill the following payment obligations:

  • taxes
  • employee labor or material suppliers
  • equipment suppliers or renters
  • court judgments made for negligent or improper work

If a contractor fails to work according to Alaska code as required by their surety bond, the issuing surety company will pay valid claims up to the full bond amount, which the contractor must then reimburse.

Need a surety bond for a construction project?

If you need a surety bond before you can begin work on an individual contracted project, you might need a bid bond, payment bond, performance bond, or other type of contract bond. If you work in states other than Alaska, we also offer contractor license bonds nationwide.

Who regulates licensing for construction contractors?
