Does anyone have a *general* idea of how much it would cost to plumb in a gas line for a stove.

Our electric range went kabut today. I would really like a gas range but we would need to plumb in gas.

I hope it's not too outrageous.

Cheers and thanks

Shanny

Do you already have gas coming to the house? I think that's where the cost would be. It use to cost $100/hour plus supplies.

I just had a gas pipe shortened and repositioned; that cost me $133.00.

Yes, our water heater and dryer are both gas. Hubby thinks it will cost a ton because he thinks that a gas line will have to be run through the foundation to get to our kitchen.

I have NO idea. LOL!

I'm not sure what you mean by "run through the foundation." If the gas line is already in your house, that's half the battle. Are you on a cement slab? It doesn't cost you anything to get quotes. Good luck~

Is the house on a slab or is there a basement? If there's a basement it should be fairly easy, and should be somewhere in the $500-1,000 range. If you're on a slab, the only realistic choice is to run a line into the attic and then back down in the wall behind the stove. That'll require a bunch of drywall cutting/patching, etc., and easily double the price, or more.

woweee.. that sure is a long way for a short cut : ) I'd head outside then back in before I'd do that setup.

Cost all depends on length (distance) from the existing pipe to the kitchen area... access to the kitchen area from the existing line..etc. Black pipe is very expensive these days. You can go with the flexible pipe but it all depends on where the new line will need to be run. Plus you'll need a few bits and bobs (shut off valve(s), couplings, Tee)... If hubby did it himself, it'll probably run him a couple hundred. A plumber will be a few hundred plus one arm and one leg .

Now there's an attractive option- nothing like 20 or 30' of black pipe hung on the outside of the house....lol. Of course, burying it is always an option, provided you're OK with tearing up the landscaping.

Maybe in Georgia but up here in the north, we can get away with nice polycoated copper . But I would opt to bury it, then up and in... and of course, add a nice "t" for hooking up my gas grill as well
