Contract bonds are a type of surety bond required by contractors. This bond consists of two primary categories:
  1. Bid Bond: a bond required of contractors before they can submit a valid bid on a construction contract. The bond protects the project owner from financial loss if the winning bidder fails to undertake the contract under the terms at which they bid.
  2. Performance/Payment Bond: a bond that protects the project owner from financial loss resulting from a contractor failing to perform the duties of the contract (“Performance Bond”) or failing to pay subcontractors and material suppliers (“Payment Bond”).
