The Nevada Contractor’s Bond is a type of surety bond and is required by the Nevada State Contractors Board. All construction contractors performing work int he Nevada must be licensed. To obtain the license, one  requirement is the posting of a surety bond. The bond states that a claim may be filed on your surety bond if one of the following happens:

  • As the owner of the property to be improved entered into a construction contract with the contractor and is damaged by the failure of the contractor to perform the contract or to remove liens filed against the property: orNevada Contractor's Bond
  • As an employee of the contractor performed labor on or about the site of the construction covered by the contract; or
  • As a supplier of man-furnished materials or equipment for the construction covered by the contract; or
  • Is injured by any unlawful act or omission of the contractor in the performance of a contract.

The bond IS NOT insurance protecting the contractor should any of the above happen. The surety will expect the contractor to hold it harmless in the case of a claim on the bond.
