Project owners gain peace of mind knowing that their investments are protected, while contractors and subcontractors can operate with confidence, knowing that their obligations will be met.

Why Surety Bonds Matter:

  • Project Owners: Surety bonds provide project owners with a safety net. They ensure that their investment is safeguarded, and the project will be completed even in unforeseen circumstances.

  • Contractors: For contractors, surety bonds enhance credibility. They show potential clients that you're a reliable partner capable of fulfilling contractual obligations.

  • Subcontractors: Subcontractors benefit from payment bonds, which assure timely and fair compensation for their contributions, preventing delays and financial hardships.


At The Hartwell Corporation, we recognize that each construction project is unique. Our tailored surety bond solutions are designed to address the specific challenges and opportunities that your project presents, allowing you to focus on what you do best – building excellence.

Surety bonds are powerful financial instruments that establish a secure framework for construction projects and contractual agreements. They serve as a three-way agreement involving three key parties: the principal (contractor or project entity), the obligee (project owner or beneficiary), and the surety (insurance company or bonding agency).

At its core, a surety bond is a promise to fulfill the obligations outlined in a contract. It provides a safety net that ensures projects are completed as planned and contractual commitments are met.


The surety expects the contractor to perform its contractual obligations under the bond.  As part of your surety program, your firm and owners signed an Indemnity Agreement.  The Indemnity Agreement obligates your firm and owners to protect the surety company from any loss caused by your firm's failure to fulfill the contract obligation.   

Performance Bonds and Payment Bonds:

Two prominent types of surety bonds in the construction industry are performance bonds and payment bonds. These bonds address distinct aspects of construction projects, providing different forms of protection:

  • Performance Bonds: Performance bonds focus on project completion. When a contractor is awarded a project, a performance bond is often required to guarantee that the contractor will complete the work according to the terms of the contract. In the event that the contractor fails to meet their obligations, the performance bond ensures that the project owner is compensated for the resulting costs to complete the project, such as hiring a new contractor to complete the work.

  • Payment Bonds: Payment bonds, on the other hand, are designed to protect subcontractors, suppliers, and laborers involved in a project. They ensure that these entities receive timely and fair payment for their contributions.

Whether you're a contractor aiming to secure a project or a project owner seeking assurance of completion, understanding the nuances of these bonds is crucial to navigating the complexities of the construction industry. At The Hartwell Corporation, we specialize in providing the right bond solutions to match your unique requirements, ensuring the successful execution of your projects.
