Why does a New Jersey contractor need to be bonded?
New Jersey contractor license bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (contractors) comply with all state and local laws, as well as with the regulations of their specific trade. This includes adhering to all building codes, paying all taxes that become due and more. In most cases, 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.
