Question DetailsAsked on 7/22/2015

Average cost for an 85' run of Natural Gas line?

I am looking to install a natural gas stove in my house and don't currently have a line to the kitchen. I have had a couple of quotes so far but they seem astronomically high.

How much should it cost to have a natural gas line ran from one side the house at the meter, up 12 feet, 60' across the attic (which you can stand most of the way) then back down a 12' wall. There are absolutely no known obstructions to either wall or through the attic and open access to both walls. No need to cover the holes that will be needed in the drywall.

This is in Peoria, Az with no time constraints on when it needs to be done.

Assuming no serious conflicts, and with the proviso as you said that you will patch access holes, I would guesstimate about $600-800. Pipe itself is (assuming 3/4") about $2/LF with fittings, valve and flex tubing to stove about $20-30.


Check with plumbers or building officials - some locales do not like this sort of run within the living space (as opposed to in ventilated crawlspaces), and would prefer to see it done around the house foundation - and assuming your existing utilties do not interfere, with the typical 12-18" (though up to 36 in some locales) burial depth you could dig it yourself to save money - or have it run along the side of the house exposed if you don't mind that, might get it down to about $400-500 maybe - for the piping and valve/flex tubing install only, no dirtwork.

I can relate to this question in more ways than one. I happen to be a gas contractor licensed in Peoria. Depending upon your BTU requirement, the plumber will probably use 1" CSST for the run. His cost on the pipe will be about $4.50 per foot ($382.50) and has to buy a roll of a minimum 125'. (They come in 50' rolls or 125' rolls). The two fittings for the CSST are made specifically for the type of CSST and are very pricy. Say each fitting costs him $23 each ($46). They will use some miscellaneous fittings and straps ($25). He will have to send out a two man crew. Typically a gas journeyman $45 per hour and an apprentice $25 per hour. The job will likely take a well run crew about 3 hours to complete the job ($210 labor cost). They will also have the office person get the permit which will require two hours two write up the isometric plan and submit it to the city. ($32 labor plus $100 for the permit). After the job is all done the office manager calls it in for inspection. They send the crew back out to take the pressure off the line and connect the gas range. One hour labor ($70). After this is done the homeowner can call the gas company to make the connection to the meter, which the gas company requires in peoria. Now mind you, all of this has been actual cost put out by the contractor for your job. I didn't mention his license, bonding, insurance, vehicle and maintenence cost and additional overhead and oh yeah a reasonable profit for the company. So the contractor's cost is let's say 20% over actual cost to cover overhead. So far we have a total of $865.50 + 20% = $1038.60 Now for the profit. At our company we add a multiplier of 1.6 plus tax so this job would come out to $1747.75

I certainly hope this helps answer your question and if nothing else gives other person a reasonable example of what to expect for their next interior gas job. Also, a "handyman" could do this job a lot cheaper, however you can't buy peace of mind that a licensed professional can give you.
