Question DetailsAsked on 4/24/2017

How much might it cost to move a washer and dryer into the garage?

We might buy a house in Lake Dallas Tx. the washer/dryer is in the kitchen, and we want to move it into the garage. It's slab flooring. The hot water heater and air conditioning unit are in the garage. What would be the approximate cost from least expensive to most costly?

OK - AL computer is taking out the paragraph breaks AGAIN - every place you see the



that is where a paragraph break should be - maybe you can copy and paste the text into a word processing program to make it more readable.

Obviously you should have an actual quote form a contractor if this is going to figure into what you intend to pay for the house (taking the relocation into consideration in figuring what the house is worth to you) - many realtors have a go-to general contractor for this sort of work who normally does contingency repairs for owners prior to sale time, but might give you a quote good till a couple of months after likely closing date to give you a firm number to think to.



Anyway, here are links to quite a few similar previous questions FYI - but I would assume bare minimum pushing $1000 unless there is an existing sewer line above-slab pretty close to proposed washer location, and probably $1000-2000 would be a safer assumed range - maybe more in $500-1000 range in ideal case if new location would be just dropped basically vertically down from the kitchen AND accessible sewer line (above-slab) quite close to new location........... That presupposes normal (not steam) washer, and that you intend to use same type of power for dryer as is in kitchen, or if not that the house already has natural gas service (for gas dryer) or is moderately newish (say not over 20-30 years) if proposing changing from gas to electric dryer. Otherwise electric could possibly run it up hundred to even $100 or more higher if electrical system does not the capacity in the existing breaker box/service for gas dryer connection. Normally do, but older homes, especially with 100A or smaller main service, can be an issue adding a dryer load. .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........
