How Much Does a Gas Line Repair Cost in Denver?
February 08, 2019
In the Denver area, a gas line repair can cost anywhere from $200 to over $3,000.
We know, that’s a big range.
Your exact repair cost will depend on 3 factors:
Location of the damaged line
Length and material of the pipe
Labor costs to repair the line
We’ll cover each of factor in more detail.

Cost factor #1: Location
The harder the damaged gas line is to access, the more you’ll pay to repair it.
If the damaged gas line is buried deep underground or beneath a structure (like a porch or patio), you’ll have to pay for the added labor and machinery required to dig to the pipe.
Also, depending on the location of the damaged pipe, you might have to pay for cosmetic repairs after the job is done.
For example, you might have to pay for repairs like:
Patching holes in drywall
Retiling a wall
Fixing or laying new flooring
Cost factor #2: Length and material
Your repair cost will increase with the length of pipe that needs to be repaired.
Also, if part of the pipe needs to be replaced, pipe material will impact your overall repair cost. You’ll typically pay more for carbon steel than you will for wrought-iron piping.
However, you likely won’t get to choose the pipe material for your repair. That’s because Denver has strict regulations on which gas pipe materials can be used where. Your plumber will know which material will work best for your situation.
Cost factor #3: Labor
You’ll pay more for higher-quality plumbers.
That being said, a gas line isn’t something you want repaired by the cheapest plumber you can find. To prevent a serious accident (and harm to your family), only a licensed gas plumber should repair gas lines.
For that reason, you’re better off paying the higher labor fees of a licensed plumber. You’ll rest assured knowing the job will be done right.
