Illinois Construction Bond

Contractors and companies seeking work on construction projects in Illinois should prepare to get different types of surety bonds that are collectively known as Illinois construction bonds. All the details you need to get the right bond are outlined below.

What is an Illinois Construction Bond?

Also known as an Illinois construction performance bond, this surety bond holds the bonded party financially liable if they don't meet performance standards stipulated under contract. For example, if a contractor does not complete work on time or up to quality standards, the other party that hired the contractor may file a claim against the bond seeking compensation for damages.

How does a Construction Bond work in Illinois?

When the surety company receives a claim against the bond, it launches an investigation into the details. As long as the claim is valid, the surety pays a settlement automatically. Surety bonds ensure that project owners can recoup losses caused by contractors who do not fulfill expectations. However, the surety is only an intermediary - they do not accept financial liability for the claim. Responsibility always rests with the bonded contractor, who must pay the surety back the amount of any claims settled, plus interest and fees.

What is the purpose of an Illinois Construction Bond?

Construction bonds hold contractors accountable for their mistakes, which in turn creates a financial incentive for them to meet the terms of a construction contract. Bonds also protect project owners from unexpected losses caused by contractors. Bonds are a tool for risk management, and an effective one at that, which is why Illinois construction bond requirements are a common feature of construction contracts.

Why get an Illinois Construction bond?

When there are Illinois construction bond requirements written into a contract, it's impossible to finalize that contract, start any work, or receive any compensation until you provide proof you have the required bond. There's no way around this requirement. So there's no reason to delay getting a bond. Viking Bond Service can get you a quote within 24 hours!

Anyone required to get one as part of a construction contract. Bond requirements are usually clearly spelled out, but they can be confusing nonetheless. Viking Bond Service is here to help.

Who are the parties involved in an Illinois Construction Bond?

Unlike insurance or loan agreements that exist between two parties, all surety bond agreements involve three parties:

  • Principal - The party responsible for obtaining the construction bond(s) and paying for claims.
  • Obligee - The party that writes the construction bond requirements and has the right to file claims against the bond
  • Surety - The party that issues bonds to the principal and holds the principal responsible for any settlements the surety pays to the obligee.
