What is the Average Cost of a General Contractor? Average General Contractor Price

A general contractor is someone who oversees a building job. If you are building a new home or structure, you might hire a contractor to oversee the project. They also instruct the crew of laborers working on your project. The contractor charges a certain percentage over what the sub-contractors charge. Due to the contractors’ knowledge of his laborers and the business, he can save you money by dealing with the sub-contractors. A contractor typically costs roughly 5% to 25% of the total project cost. The average ranges from 10% to 15%.
