The Washington Contractor’s Registration Act (RCW 18.27) requires electrical, specialty, and general contractors to post surety bonds to legally work within the state. These bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (contractors) do the following:
- pay all wages and benefits to any person furnishing labor to him or her
- pay all amounts that become due as a result of the principal’s breach of contract including negligent or improper work in the conduct of contracting business
- pay any person who furnishes labor or materials or who rents or supplies equipment to the principal
- pay all taxes and contributions due to the state
- generally comply with the rules and regulations of RCW 18.27.040
Contractor license bonds in Washington State remain continuous until canceled by the surety company that issued the bond. The surety company can cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice of its intent to cancel to the Director of Labor and Industries. A cancellation or revocation of the bond or withdrawal of the bond suspends the contractor registration issued to the registrant until a new bond or reinstatement notice has been filed and approved. All Contractors Insurance and Bonds can issue these bonds for as low as $100, subject to qualification. Good rates for contractor license bonds are easier to qualify for than ever. We issue bonds daily for contractors with good credit, average credit, and poor credit. We can even issue contractor license bonds for immigrants with a Tax ID Number (TIN).

Many scenarios, one solid, customized solution
Your unique business faces a wide range of unpredictability, and Business Liability insurance can help businesses mitigate potentially devastating lawsuits. Coverage examples include:
Premises and Operations
A customer at the store you own trips over a fixture and sustains a significant injury from the fall. Bills for the hospital visits are submitted to you for payment. Business Liability Insurance can cover these charges, as well as the business owner, should he be sued by the customer for negligence.
Products and Completed Operations
The deck you built a year ago was flawed, causing a new building owner fiscal disaster. A legal notice appears in the mail informing you of a lawsuit. The case goes to court and your former client wins. Business Liability insurance can handle the defense costs and, if it comes to it, the legal damages for which the policyholder is responsible.
Cyber Liability and Data Breach
You don’t know why or how, but your computer system has been hacked. And now all your confidential business and customer data could be online, free to trade and impersonate. The least of your worries is finding the source of the data breach and repairing exposed computers. Your focus is now on damage control and possibly recovering stolen data. Fortunately, your Cyber Liability insurance coverage can help provide you with legal and forensic assistance, as well as free data security risk management services for your customers.
Employment Practices Liability
If you’ve been in business for a few years or operate in an industry with high turnover rates, you’ve likely hired many employees, whether temporary or full-time. The truth of the matter is that any of these employees can bring legal action against your business at any time. Employment Practices Liability insurance can help cover your business entity, directors, officers and employees if you are accused of wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, and other employment-related offenses.
