There are always exceptions and I hate generalities.
That said, it does never cease to surprise me how often materials
and labor split amazingly close to 50/50.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
The extremely rough rule of thumb I've seen is about 1/3 materials and 2/3
labor. Doesn't mean it's right, just the numbers I've seen and which seem
to come out in the ballpark on the small projects I've done.
A good rule of thumb for material percentage of a new home project is
between 42-45%. This is typical and does not include decks.
I hope this helps.
