Anyone have any good experiences having a branch gas line put in to their kitchen from an existing gas line in their house? Definitely want qualified for this one! :-) Thanks!April 4, 2018 at 3:46 pm #913160
We went propane. The only gas we really needed was for a new stove. Stove top propane. Because I hate cooking on electric. The oven is electric. Best of both worlds. Bought 2 40 gallon propane tanks and installed professionally. Need more info…we can talk off line. VanessaApril 5, 2018 at 11:33 am #913223
Thanks Vanessa however I never liked the idea of potentially giant bombs sitting next to my house. I don’t even love having the gas line in there but it’s already there so probably going to just extend it. Thanks for the idea though, hadn’t thought of it!April 10, 2018 at 11:55 am #913589
Really? No one local or recommended? Hoped to get someone of quality. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated! Thanks.April 10, 2018 at 5:29 pm #913618
There is a very active Facebook group called west seattle connection. I’m positive you would get comments there. best of luck. :-)April 12, 2018 at 12:48 am #913734
Please reply to your experience here! I am in the same situation and would love to extend a gas line to my kitchen safely at a reasonable price. Maybe even add a gas fireplace for when the power goes out.
Thanks WSB for providing this forum! After learning the hard way with Myspace I’ll never give away my own and my families’info on Facebook or Twitter or whatever. F that!April 12, 2018 at 11:19 am #913761
Sorry for lack of comments – there are a lot of references for plumbing if you do a search and most of them lead to Joe The Plumber (who is awesome, by the way). The forums have become a bit of a wasteland due to all the crabby folks.
For gas lines, I’d call Joe, Green Planet and O’Neill for local options. I have worked with both Joe and O’Neill and can recommend them without question. Have heard good things about Green Planet but have no firsthand experience. There is no real difference between installing piping for water vs. gas, any qualified plumber will do both.
Fox and Fischer are good companies, but not local to WS. You could also try calling PSE and see what they’d charge for extension of an existing line but they’d just sub it out to one of the people that you can call directly.
I would NOT recommend calling Southwest, as I’ve heard too many stories about their estimating and business practices. Your mileage may vary.April 12, 2018 at 1:45 pm #913776
I called all of those listed above and could not find anyone who extends gas lines (I need one to a dryer.) If you find one, please let us all know.April 12, 2018 at 8:36 pm #913804
Did you call Green Planet? Says specifically on their website that they do gas plumbing. Or is it a matter of the project being too small?
You could try calling PSE, as they’ll have resources being the gas utility. You also might try calling Wiseman’s to see who they recommend for doing gas appliance hookups.April 13, 2018 at 7:42 am #913843
Stay away from Fox! I am in the industry (commercial only) and they are NOT a quality contractor. O’Neill is the best contractor in West Seattle. They even ran my own gas line to my home many years ago.
Remember that you get what you pay for. O’Neill is not always the cheapest, but they are the most well trained and professional residential contractor around.
