Why do I need this bond?

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation is in charge of licensing contractors. If a contractor cannot prove they meet the minimum net worth requirement for their license classification, a $50,000 surety bond is required.

What’s the difference between Class A and Class B licenses?

A contractor is considered Class A if they handled a single contract of $120,000 or more or if the total value of all of the contracts undertaken in the past 12 months is $750,000 or more. Class B contractors have handled a single contract valued between $10,000 and $120,000 or had a total contract value over the past 12 months in an amount between $150,000 and $750,000.
