Replacing an existing gas cooktop can be an easy way to improve the appearance and functionality of a kitchen. Cooktops differ from traditional stoves in that they're usually installed on a countertop or island area instead of being a freestanding unit, and there isn't an oven connected to it.

Replacing a gas cooktop with a unit that's the same size is relatively simple and inexpensive; however, certain situations can add to the cost of the project. If the contractor needs to remove the existing unit and scrape the sealant from the countertop, this increases the labor time. Modifications or repairs to the countertop, gas line or electrical system can also significantly impact the price.
Many local codes require that a licensed technician perform work that involves gas lines. Working with a professional contractor ensures that the cooktop is installed to manufacturer specifications, and installers check for gas leaks so that the unit is safe to operate. For models that are larger than the existing opening, a professional can make adjustments to the countertop providing a seamless installation.
