Cost of adding a gas shutoff valve for built in oven

Ibam having a new built in wall oven. The installer stated I had to have a second gas shut off valve for the oven. And a separate shut off valve the stove top. What is the average cost for a gas shut off valve?

Each individual appliance needs a shutoff valve at the connection between the gas piping in the house, and the flex tubing to the appliance - so sounds like your oven and stovetop are totally separate appliances, as would be normal with a built-in oven - hence the two valves, which presumably would be coming off a new Tee in the gasline.

You would need to have the appliance installer (if unit is not in place yet) identify WHERE he wants the valve located, and how far out from the wall it can stick without interfering with the unit - though normally it is down near the floor and does not interfere with most unit installations - with flex tubing running from there up behind the appliance to the connection at the appliance. I would recommend having the plumber install using a low profile - sticking out from the wall as little as possible, to be on the safe sidenot just for this installation but for any future appliance replacements.

Valves themselves about $5-10 each, about 2-5 minutes work to install ASSUMING area is accessible - i.e. one does not have to remove a built-in appliance to replace them. So - labor normally minimum service charge by a plumber/gas fitter - about $50-200 range but most commonly around $75-150 in most areas.
