How much do contractors usually charge for GC Fees?

If the repairs and labor are $17,938, then how much would the contractor's fee be?

Depends, if that was my cost to have my guys & subs do the job I would charge you about $2500.00-3000.00 for dealing with all the head-aches and profit for the company. Or more, I would not tell you how much my cost was or give you a break-down of labor and materials either, none of your business I think ( I know you didn't ask for that).
Then you could hire me or not.

15% to 20% management fee is typical, but can be more, dependent on the what else is involved with overseeing the project.

In my experience, most contractors charge about 10% of the project cost for "overhead and profit", and an additional 10-15% for general conditions of the contract.

General conditions refers to the unidentifiable costs associated with installing the work usually outlined by the client as well as things like bonding and insurance.
