Alaska Contractors must amend their license Surety Bonds. Effective January 1, 2015, Senate Bill 193 increases the required construction contractor bonding amounts for General Contractors, Residential Contractors and Mechanical/Specialty Contractors. To avoid fines and license non-renewal, Contractors must post documentation (a bond) to satisfy the new requirements BEFORE January 1, 2015.

The new Alaska Contractors License Bond amount for General Contractors will now be $25,000.

Alaska General Contractors who ONLY perform residential work will post a $20,000 Contractor Bond.

Those licensed ONLY as Mechanical Contractor, Specialty Contractor, or Home Inspector are required to post a $10,000 Contractor Bond.

A $5,000 Alaska Contractors License Bond is sufficient for those whose work on one project with contract price of $10,000 or less, including all labor, materials, and other items, when the work is not part of a larger or major operation or otherwise divided into smaller contracts to evade a higher bonding requirement.
