Can felons own a construction company that performs work for and works inside government facilities. Can felons be set up for bonding and bond a construction job?

Hi Porter,

Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, we don't have a clear-cut answer for you. Why? Because bonding is determined on a very case-by-case basis. Depending on the size and scale of the construction project and who the project is for - the government or a private entity - the needed surety bond type and amount vary greatly.

The best way to find out exactly what you need is to talk with the state or private construction project owner to determine your surety bond needs. Then, give us a call at 1 (800) 308-4358, and one of our surety experts will be happy to answer any questions you have.
