Effective July 1st, the state of Washington will require an increase on their bonds. They will be going from $6,000 to $15,000 for the Specialty license and $12,000 to $30,000 for the General license.  

The state will mandate that as the contractor’s license renews, they will require an increase on their bond. Please note that the license renewal will typically not match up with the bond renewal dates in our system. If a contractor obtains their license before July 1st, the increase will not be required until the following license renewal.
