What is a Performance Bond?
A Performance Bond is a type of surety bond issued by an insurance company or a bank to guarantee satisfactory completion of a project by a contractor. In the construction industry, a Performance Bond is often required to protect the client if the contractor fails to complete the contract or does not meet the agreed standards or time frame in performing the project. It is essentially a safeguard tool that ensures the project owner will not incur financial loss due to the contractor's inability to fulfill the contract. This bond provides assurance that the contractor has the necessary resources and competencies to execute the project according to the stipulated terms.
