Payment / Performance Bonds Claims & Defense
As a contractor, you know that payment bonds are required on all public construction projects over $200,000. Since a construction lien cannot be placed on public property to secure payment of subcontractors and material suppliers, payment bonds are an essential part of government construction projects. On bonded private projects, the payment bond takes the place of the owner’s property as security for the payment of work performed by subcontractors and material suppliers.
