Why do I need a contractor bond?

Although contractor bonds are required in varying amounts based on the type of license for which an applicant is seeking, all contractor bonds in Colorado are required to ensure contractors complete construction work in accordance with the laws of the city and state, including adhering to all building codes and paying all taxes as they are due. If the contractor fails to comply with applicable rules and regulations, the bond protects the city/state and any individual harmed as a result of the contractor’s noncompliance from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond.

Many Colorado contractor bonds are issued for one-year terms and must be renewed annually. However, applicants should ensure they understand the fine print of their surety bond contracts to avoid a potential lapse in coverage.
