Our Experienced Surety Bonds Department Makes A Difference

Our surety bond department brings unsurpassed experience and knowledge to the table. Our surety bonds department leader, Jim Siddons, has over 20 years of experience providing bonds to all kinds of businesses. He and his team members understand how the process works, who the best resources are, and where to turn to make sure bonds are issued quickly and accurately.

Contract Bonds; Bid, Performance, Payment, and Maintenance Bonds

We help our clients quickly obtain four types of contractors bonds:

  • Bid bonds: These bonds assure the project owner that the contractor can obtain a performance bond should the bid be accepted.
  • Performance bonds: performance bonds promise that the contractor will perform the job as agreed upon.
  • Payment bonds: These bonds can be obtained in tandem with a performance bond or individually. Payment bonds promise that the job will be completed free of liens.
  • Maintenance bonds: Maintenance bonds are required for larger projects. They promise that the job will be completed free of defects for a specified period of time.

Other Commercial Surety Bonds we can offer to our Insurance and Bond Clients

Why go to another agent or secondary source whenever you need these specific bonds? We can assist with all your bonding needs, including:

  • License and permit bonds
  • Court and probate bonds
  • Fidelity and dishonesty bonds
