In other words, it includes all materials and labor cost, without land value. Coverage for damages resulting from faults such as design, planning, materials, and workmanship are not included.

  1. Performance Bond

In a situation where the contractor is unable to perform or fails to complete the project according to established and provisions of the contract, the performance bond will help to protect the owner against possible losses. The surety will be responsible for reimbursing the owner for losses in cases where the contractor declares bankruptcy or defaults.
