Oregon Contractors License Bond

Contractor License Bonds in Oregon - State Capital Building Olympia, Oregon

A contractor license bond is essential for anyone working as a contractor in Oregon. This type of bond is an agreement between the contractor, the state, and the surety, all three concerned parties in any given job. The contractor license bond provides peace of mind for Oregon consumers and helps build trust in licensed contractors for the general public.

The contractor license bond functions as a promise to the state that you as a contractor will follow all applicable laws and regulations along with trade and workmanship standards. Contractor license bonds also show the public that you perform quality work and will actively remedy situations where issues do arise from the work performed. The bond provides consumers with a financial recourse should the bonded contractor not complete the job in an acceptable manner.

What Is a Contractor License Bond and What Does It Cover?

A contractor license bond is a form of guarantee that the contractor will perform his/her job duties properly. Contractors who fail to complete jobs or complete them poorly raise the potential for claims on their contractor license bond. Bond claims have a negative impact on a specific contractor’s ability to stay licensed. Claims can lead to bond cancellation. Since the bond is a requirement to maintain licensure, it’s best to avoid claims.

While contractor license bonds are required as a consumer protection, the bond also works as an important tool for contractors. Contractor license bonds generate consumer confidence and trust. The bond encourages consumers to hire licensed contractors, knowing that these contractors will complete the job and provide quality work and/or service.

How to Get a Contractor License Bond in Oregon

All licensed contractors in Oregon must have an Oregon contractor license bond. The bond can be purchased from a surety bond company licensed through the state. The bonding process typically consists of a general commercial surety bond application, a credit check and payment of premium. The process can take as little as a day to complete.

The Cost of Oregon Contractor License Bonds

Because Oregon contractor license bonds are individually underwritten, their cost varies from contractor to contractor. When determining the quoted rate, a surety will consider, among other considerations, the bond amount, the contractors credit and to some extent the contractor’s work history. Another consideration is prior claim history. Past claim history can have a significantly negative effect on the bond premium.

The typical price quoted for contractor license bonds in Oregon ranges from 1% to 3% of the bond amount. While most quotes will fall within this range, some do come in both lower and higher than that range based on the details of the application.
