Frequently Asked Questions
Now! There’s no cost to prequalify, so lets work together to correct anything that may come up during the normal underwriting process. We know what the surety companies like to see, and we have ways to address them ahead of time. The last thing you want is to miss out on that dream job because the bond was the last thing you left off the table.
In some cases you can get a bond up to $750,000 on personal credit alone and in less than 24 hours! If your credit isn’t perfect and/or the bond need is over that amount, there are other options, you’ll just need to prepare a bit ahead of time.
That also depends! Smaller, credit approval bonds will range from 2.5-3%. More established contractors should expect to pay as low as 0.5%. In general, the rates will fit somewhere between 0.5-3%.

“I am so thankful that I have Edin and District Bonding on my team of businesses I can trust. We bid on a job as a prime for the first time. I had no idea if I was doing anything correctly. I was very impressed with Edin and his ability to keep me on track since we had a very quick turn-around time to get it done. Edin was amazing We didn’t win the bid, but it wasn’t due to Edin. Without him, we couldn’t have even submitted a bid!”
