What Are Contingencies and Allowances?

In this article, our Cook County mechanics lien attorneys explain different types of pricing structures that can be used in general contractor agreements.  One of the most common price structures is for the owner to pay the contractor the cost of work plus the contractor’s fee. ​Often, in a “cost-plus-fee” contract, the contractor’s fee is calculated as a certain percentage of the actual costs associated with the work, including labor, materials, storage, and transportation.  A common way to mitigate the owner’s risk and provide a level of certainty as to the cost of the project is for the contractor to set a guaranteed maximum price.
