Default Cost of Installing a gas fire & surround

Hi guys,

Has anyone any ideas of how much I can expect to pay for the istallation of a gas fire and surround?

I'm hoping to have a price range in mind when I ring round for quotes!

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I have just got a quote for 1238 for fitting of a new stove. Quote breaks down to 699 for the stove, 40 Stove Pipe, 250 for Stone Hearth and 249 for fitting including knocking out of existing wall and plastering.

I have also paid 260 to a seperate company to have my flue test and a new flue liner installed.

The same place also did gas and electric fires, with hearth and surround all fitted for 799.

Hope this helps.

You can also get those flueless gas fires- I bought mine from B%Q Think it was 549 or something like that (didn't come with surround as thats not the style) and it cost me 200 for a gas fitter to come and install.

we paid around £200 last year to have the fire removed from one room and capped off then knocking out chairbrick in new room and installing the fire along with hearth/back/panel and surround. Got quoted similar to install a new one in our new place from the same guy a couple of weeks back (this is Dorset if regional prices vary)

good question donna-j - we live in a victorian property and the previous owners covered over the fireplace just with ply board which has been wallpapered and painted over. We want to open it up and install a combination gas cast iron fireplace. Any building control regulations we need to know about? or can a general builder install the fireplace then we get in a corgi fitter to hook up the gas? TIA if anyone knows

I am buying the fireplace over the web. The marble surround I am buying from a specialist shop, (where I saw the fireplace for 200 more !). I am getting a local CORGI man to remove the old fire and fit the new one and surround for 300.
