A cooktop is an integral part of the kitchen, and when you want one in your house, you can choose between gas and electric cooktops.
A lot of different factors can affect the cost of cooktop installation. The first factor is the type of cooktop you want i.e. gas or electric. Other factors that can increase or decrease the costs for you include cooktop with or without an oven, number of burners, the complexity of the task, difficulty in removing the old installation, etc.
Your costs can also vary depending on the installers you choose. A well-known company with a premium finish will always cost you more than installations from lesser-known companies.
