Oklahoma Contractor Bonds

Multiple cities and contractor classifications in the state of Oklahoma require contractors to post a surety bond. These bonds ensure the principal (contractor) will complete all work as outlined in their contract as well as adhere to all applicable regulations and codes. Obligees (government entity requiring the bond) are also protected from any claims filed because of negligent work or damages. If a claim is filed by an afflicted party, an amount up to the full bond amount must be paid by the surety company. The surety will then be paid back in full by the principal.
