GC fee questions
I just had my budget meeting with my GC so I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around a very large number. However I have some questions about what is standard practice for the GC's fee on the build. Is it standard practice for the GC to add their fee to the total of the bill or just to select items in the build? Specifically my question is why am I paying a flat percentage 10% on the cost of the lot, and the permit for the city fee? I understand paying the fee on the labor, materials, as well as the subcontractors and such. I am certainly not against my GC making money off of me, I understand that he needs to eat also I am just curious if this is standard or not.
