Have been caught out with 22mm pipe not being sufficient to supply new boiler. Meter in cellar at front of house and boiler on 1st floor at rear, a long run. Registered Gas Engineer proposes to run new pipe work on rear external wall to reduce the run and need to rip property apart. I see external gas pipework is a common way to solve this problem. However I am not happy with how it will look and particularly the suggestion to run the pipe under the French door sill - I don’t think it will be kicked but it’s an inaccessible and grubby channel very near ground level.

Would appreciate any advice specifically on the under door routing and also generally on the merits of external gas pipework.

If it needs to be done then there isn't much choice other than what route and how much you are willing to pay for it. What is the pressure drop across the installation?
