Contract Bonds

Contract bonds are available for every type of construction project in the public and private sectors, including bonds for specialties, such as solar energy and manufacturing.

The vast majority of our contractor clients are middle-market size and have strong bond lines of credit with highly-rated bond companies. Many of these clients started small and successfully grew over time. Growth, however, usually doesn’t come without challenges.

When events involving such things as succession and continuity, geographic expansion, or economic downturns occur, our close relationships with our clients and surety companies are what carry the day. In these situations, success may depend heavily on a bond broker’s experience.

Because every contractor is unique, we work to identify your specific strengths and then pair you with the bond company that best addresses your goals, such as having preferred rates, support for larger single projects and increased bond capacity, or reduced indemnity.

Renewable energy is a business disruption strategy – finding the proper bonding is a key component for energy companies.
