Why is a Wisconsin contractor’s bond required?

Contractor bonds in Wisconsin are put in place to ensure that a licensed contractor (the principal) completes construction work in accordance with the laws of the city/state. This includes adhering to all building codes, paying all taxes that become due and more. Typically, these bonds protect the city/state and/or any individual who is harmed as a result of the principal’s noncompliance from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

All Wisconsin contractor bonds have unique terms, so applicants should be sure they understand the fine print of their surety bond contracts during the bonding and licensing processes.
