As with any surety bond, the rate, or cost, of the bond is dependant upon the risk it is covering.  Oregon contractors bonds range between 1-1.2% and are instant issue for bonds under $25,000.  Bonds over $25,000 will require a credit report on the principal owners of the business and will be charged the same rate as long as their credit qualifies.  Accounts with credit issues can still get a bond through our non standard or damaged credit bonding program.
