My old friend's brother works for John Moore as an electrician and they came to mind as plumbers as well since a guy in my National Guard unit was a plumber for them years ago... So they quote us $1350 to install a gas hookup which only consisted of about 2 feet of pipe, a pipe T, and elbow, and a valve. The gas meter is immediately opposite the outside the wall where the range is located, but the cheap skate builders didn't put the gas hookup in. We also asked out of curiosity how much it would cost to run a gas line about 20-25 feet straight from the meter to the backyard. The kitchen and breakfast area on that same corner of the house where we wanted it ran back from, so it was maybe 15 feet from meter to the corner of the house, then another 5 feet...they quoted us $5000!!! I felt both quotes were WAY more than they should have been. I tried to research it online and I was reading it would be $250-350 for the gas hookup so I wanted more quotes. I called the plumber to get clarification since my wife was home for the quote visit. I asked him why it cost so much and he went on about how many homes in Harris County that had blown up due to gas leaks, and how is a Master Plumber...from what I understand, you have to be a licensed plumber to do this type of work anyhow right? Essentially he gave me a run around and had no valid reason for his inflated quote. I ended up getting A+ Castle out to quote the same work and the gas hookup was quoted at $750 and the gas line to back yard was quoted at $1700. So the gas hookup was 45% cheaper and plumbing to back yard was about 76% cheaper. Please get multiple quotes for your work folks! I also had A+ Castle do the work and have a separate review for that.
