Oregon Contractor



The Oregon Contractor is a $0.00 bond. This bond is available in 1, 2, or 3 year terms.

The Contractor Bond is a financial assurance that a contractor will complete a job to a client's satisfaction. The bond is a requirement for the issuance of an active license, reactivation of a license, and for the maintanance of an actively renewed license. The bond is filed for the benefit of consumers who may be damaged as a result of defective construction or other license law violations, and for the benefit of employees who have not been paid wages that are due to them.

Ashton Agency has a 100% approval rate and offers the bonds required for Oregon contractors at some of the most competitive rates available. Let us save you money!

Who needs a contractor bond?

In the State of Oregon, contractors are required to obtain a surety bond to be in compliance with Chapter 701 of the Oregon Revised Statutes.

What is the contractor bond?

The contractor bond protects the party requesting the surety bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial choices, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to adhere to state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. By obtaining your contractor bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions. The bond is filed for the benefit of consumers who may suffer damages as a result of defective construction or other license law violations, and for the benefit of employees who have not been paid wages that are due to them.

Depending on the kind of contracting work you do, your bond amount and insurance requirements will vary: 

License Type

Liability Insurance Required Per Occurrence

Residential General Contractors

$20,000

$500,000

Residential Specialty Contractors

$15,000

The Oregon contractor bond is also known as: Oregon residential contractor bond; residential general contractor bond, residential specialty contractor bond, residential limited contractor bond, residential developer bond.
