Question DetailsAsked on 2/13/2017

Looking for someone to move a gas dryer in Philadelphia, PA

I currently have a concrete basement that I'm looking to frame out and finish but I would like to move our current laundry area to the other side of the basement. The location is directly below the gas line so all that is needed is to add a tee in the line and drop down to where the hookup will be.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

You don't say if you have adequate power connection there for the dryer. If you do, then a Plumber can add a gas connection and will probably move and hook the dryer up as well for probably about $150-250 range. If you need electrical put in there too, then add an Electrician for similar amount if ceiling joists are exposed - more if finished ceiling plus having to repair the access holes. And of course unless DIY'ing that, you also need a new dryer vent opening and maybe ducting to the outside, and sealing off the old hole through the wall. So - probably three types of contractors - or a remodeling contractor to get it all done.


Or - if using a remodeling general contractor for the walls and finishing of the basement, just add the relocation to his scope of work maybe.


You did not say anything about the water pipes and electrical and drain line for the washer ? So you can see, by the time you get done, can be a fair amount of work involved in such a relocation - and commonly the drain from the washer is the expensive part if not moving to where there is easy co,nnection access to the main drain stack.


You can see previous questions with some ballpark numbers on relocating washer and dryer in the Home > Appliance ands Home > Plumbing links under Browse Projects, at lower left.
