What is a surety bond, and why do I need one for my Denver, Colorado Sidewalk Contractors License?

A surety bond is a three-way agreement between a Principal (The applicant for a Sidewalk Contractor License in Denver), an Obligee (City of Denver), and a surety company (the company backing the bond). A surety bond does NOT function like an insurance policy for the Principal; instead, it guarantees that the Principal )Cement Sidewalk Contractor) will observe all Denver ordinances, rules, and regulations relating to laying sidewalks or driveways, making curb cuts, laying curbs and gutters, and installing drainage structures in or connected to right-of-way or public property of Denver. These are specified in the Revised Municipal Code of Denver, Section 49-646. The bond also ensures the cement sidewalk contractor will satisfy any and all claims and damages caused by any act or neglect on the part of the contractor relating to the work in order to prevent the City/County of Denver from incurring said claims and damages. Under the surety bond, the public of Denver has no financial liability in the event that the Principal violates this agreement.

You must file this bond with the City and County of Denver before your Sidewalk Contractor License will be issued.

This bond is written for the amount of $10,000/year, for 1-3 years. There is no credit check required, and bonds are issued at a set rate. The costs of the bond are as follows:

  • 1 year - $100
  • 2 years - $175
  • 3 years - $250

In the event that the Principal violates the terms of their license or bond, there may be a claim filed against the bond. The surety company will issue payment for the damages. The Principal must fully repay the surety for the payments through the bond. In addition to repayment, the surety may revoke the bond, and the Contractor License will be invalid until a new bond is filed. A history of surety bond claims will complicate any future applications, and it is important that you, your employees, agents, and/or representatives fully understand the terms of your license and bond to avoid any issues.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

We are opening up a Mental Health Residential Treatment Center and needed a Surety bond since we will be handling some clients cash resources. I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.
