    We are a small electrical contractor and historically we average around 10% of our contract revenue in change orders every year. We would like to know if other trades have a similar % of their revenue in change order work or if our ratio is unusual. Change orders are constantly an issue and are very time consuming to negotiate. Owners and GCs have a hard time understanding why our costs are what they are.

    Concrete contractor, 10% revenue increase due to change orders on commercial work is not abnormal for us, but your mileage may vary.
