Construction Underwriters is an independent surety bond agency providing for the bonding needs of the construction and service contractor industries.

Unlike many other independent commercial insurance agents who just do bonds on the side, we focus our entire effort on the surety side of things. In doing so, we have a greater depth of knowledge of the surety industry and a wide network of surety markets of all different sizes, both standard and specialty. This positions us to be able to assist contractors anywhere along the spectrum from emerging to established in both traditional and specialized trades
