How Much Does a Gas Fireplace Cost?

There are many variables that make a huge difference when estimating the cost of a gas fireplace project. Some people have the ability to help keep costs down by doing some of the work themselves. Others feel much more comfortable knowing that a professional has the experience and expertise to complete the entire installation. Most jobs can be broken down into a few different categories. So, let’s briefly discuss some numbers.

The first is the cost of the fireplace itself and any options you might want. This number will vary a lot, based on the size and style of the fireplace and any decorative options you select. A reasonable estimate of the fireplace will be in the $3000 - $9000.00 range. Secondly, it is the cost of the venting components. Minimum horizontal vent kits start around $500, while a more complicated horizontal or vertical installation may exceed $1500.00. Next is the framing and electric and gas extension work that’s necessary. $500 - $1400 will cover many locations. Lastly are the finishing costs. This cost can be the largest variable associated with the project. Custom stone or brick work will exceed $15 - $20,000, while something very basic may run in the $500 range. Many jobs with a mantle and some simple tile or cultured brick or stone work will be in the range of $3000 - $5000.00.

As costs vary regionally, it’s always best to get your WE LOVE FIRE® dealer involved early on with a gas fireplace project.
