Why are contractor bonds important in New York?

Contractor license bonds hold licensed contractors accountable for the quality of their work and protect the public from damages they’ve incurred due to the contractor’s violation of licensing laws.

When the surety company issues the bond, they provide a financial guarantee to the local municipality that the contractor will comply with the regulations set forth in the contractor license. If the contractor violates these regulations, causing a loss to the consumer, the consumer can file a claim against the bond.

If the claim is valid, the surety company will cover the costs to repair the damage up to the amount of the bond. The contractor is then liable to reimburse the surety company for all damages paid.

How do I get my general contractor’s license in New York?

Because New York contractor licenses are issued at the municipal level rather than the state, you’ll need to check with your local municipality for any licensing requirements. Below are some common requirements for contractor licenses throughout the State of New York:

  • Completed license application form
  • Proof of general liability insurance
  • Completed background check
  • Proof of Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Paid application and license fees

Here are some resources you can use to learn more about the specific requirements in your jurisdiction.
