Question DetailsAsked on 1/28/2017

I need a ice maker water line installed from the basement to the kitchen

The old line previously installed is broke and leaks behind the wall.

Assuming the line is not generally deteriorated, could be fixed in the wall - though you then have drywall repair and painting to do to patch the hole, so if you have easy access from the basement (say open exposed floor joists to run it through) then almost certainly cheaper to have the plumber run a new line to come up right behind the reefer. Might also be able to run it from under the sink - the normla place to tap off for it, depending on access behind the cabinets and whether cabinet "floors" lift up easily to install it.

Here are links to some similar questions with some ballpark pricing - probably talking 1-2 hours work (commonly $100-200/hour) depending on access plus maybe $50-100 materials charge under most conditions:
