The consumer should want to have service providers who have a surety bond for the protection it affords them in case of a problem with work quality. They should be informed that the bond represents a badge of reliability and pride in workmanship. It is a selling point the bond holder can bring into any conversation about reliability and quality work. Having a surety bond is helpful to both parties in the transaction. The bond holder can use that fact as a selling point and pride point. The consumer will want to know that they have a worker or company who has passed the standards to obtain the surety bond. You should always make sure a company is bonded before you just hire them.
