This license bond protects the public and ensures financial compensation should a contractor fail to abide by licensing laws.

Home improvement contractors in the state of Maryland must hold a bond amount of $30,000.

Why do I need a Maryland home improvement contractor’s license bond?

If you do not meet MHIC financial solvency requirements and are seeking licensure as a home improvement contractor in Maryland, you’re required to carry this bond.

More information on how to get state licensure as a Maryland home improvement contractor is provided by the Maryland Department of Labor.

How does a Maryland home improvement contractor bond work?

Before some Maryland contractors can become licensed, they must purchase a home improvement contractor surety bond. The bond helps ensure that the contractor who doesn’t meet personal net worth requirements will abide by Maryland Code, Business Regulation, Title 8, and meet all contractual agreements made on a project.

  • If the principal (in this case, the contractor) fails to meet a project’s contractual agreements, a claim can be filed against the bond.
  • If the claim is found to be proper, the surety (the company providing the bond) will compensate the claimant.
  • In return, the principal will need to repay the surety. This ensures that the contractor is held to their financial responsibilities.
