Gas Fireplace Quote

Gas Fireplaces can only be installed within wood framing. IE: Wooden Chase or new construction


What is the current existing fireplace?

  • If a wooden chase chimney (Pre Fab) or new construction, you are at the correct SOP. If a masonry chimney you will need to refer to the SOP for gas inserts.

Identifying what unit will fit inside a Wooden Framed Chimney

    • Check the framing height and width of the existing fireplace unit to help determine what Wood Fireplace to recommend. You will want to find a unit that is relatively close to existing framing measurements. It can be within a few inches larger or smaller than the existing framing. We can adjust and frame in new unit at time of installation.
      • Take photos standing back and looking at fireplace so installer can see where the unit is being installed.

Replacement of a pre-existing wood prefab, Dog House or new construction

Step 1

When installing a Gas Fireplace it usually requires us to remove the existing stone or tile around the fireplace opening so we can remove the existing unit. This will require that you bid for new culture stone to be installed and possibly a new wooden mantel if the customer agrees.

      1. a. Measure for sq.ft of area to have new stone and hearth stones at hearth installed
      2. b. Speak to customer if they want to extend stone from floor to ceiling if the current tile or stone only goes up to mantel height.
      3. c. Measure for wooden mantel if needed
      4. d. Take photos standing back showing hearth, surround and mantel area

Step 2
Measure for Liner Kit: Dependig on the fireplace and manufacture you will need either a Horizontal Flex Venting Kit, Rigid Vent pipe or Vertical Flex Venting.

      1. a. Vertical Flex or Rigid Vent Pipe: Measure height of chimney chase to determine length of liner kit that will be needed to be install
      2. b. Dog House: You will need to quote for a 4’ Horizontal Flex Venting Kit

Note: When in doubt call your Gas Lead Technician ( Ryan )

Step 3
Is gas running into the fireplace or do you need to quote for a gas line to be run?

If a gas line needs to be run into the fireplace. How far is the meter from the fireplace? If the meter is on the opposite side of the home you might have to have the homeowner outsource this installation. Consult with your manager if you have questions. NEVER GUESS!

Step 4
Does customer need to run an electrical outlet to back of firebox?

      1. a. A blower to fireplace requires an electrical outlet. Homeowner will need to arrange to have an electrical company come out to run box in back corner of fireplace. This is a 120V outlet that is needed. Make sure you speak to homeowner!

  • Full length photo of chimney from ground to top. Stand 10’ back if possible

  • Take photo on roof looking at chimney
  • One shot standing back from 7’ feet away
  • Photo of top of chimney chase
