Surety bonds in particular are very specific to individual projects.

We can help you obtain and facilitate the entire bonding process.

There are a variety of different types of surety bonds, each one guaranteeing a different aspect of the bidding and construction process and the construction contract itself. At McInnis Insurance, we can help you with obtaining the surety bonds you need, including the following types.

  • Bid bonds assure the project owner that the contractor can get a performance bond if its bid is accepted.
  • Performance bonds, or completion bonds, promise that the contractor will perform a job as agreed upon within the contract. There are several types of performance bonds, including contract bonds. Contract bonds guarantee contractor performance and the fulfillment of all duties outlined in a contract. A contract bond usually accompanies a payment bond.
  • Payment bonds, which can be obtained individually or together with a performance bond, promise that a job will be completed free of all liens.
  • License and permit bonds are often required by state, municipal or federal ordinance as a condition of engaging in a particular business or exercising a certain privilege. Examples of different types of license and permit bonds include performance bonds, payment bonds, customs bonds tax bonds and warehouse bonds.
