Colorado Contractor License Bonds
Colorado Contractor License Bond Information
Contractor license bonds are surety bonds that must be purchased by various types of contractors in Colorado to ensure compliance with the rules and regulations of the state or local government. Contractor license bonds are required as a condition of a license or permit by local municipalities, counties, states and the federal government. For example, the city of Denver requires contractors to post a surety bond to ensure compliance with city public works ordinances relating to sewer layer, sewer contractor, sidewalk contractor, structural contractor, paving contractor, and special contractor in the right-of-way or other public property of the city. Along with Denver, local contractor license and permit bonds are also required in Colorado Springs, Aurora, Englewood, Fort Collins, Pueblo Trinidad, and Arvada.
If this bond is for a job that you are bidding or a contract that has been awarded to you, the surety bond you need is a Contract/Construction Bond rather than a Contractor License Bond.
