Arlington, VA - Is this a BAD estimate for Radiator/Boiler System Repairs?
 
OK, have a leaking radiator valve, and a leaking pipe that feeds the radiator valve, and I had a local company come out and give an estimate for 920.00 dollars.

Am I getting ripped off? :furious:

Here is the description from the estimate:

"Need to drain down the boiler. Replace both parts need to then refill, purge air and inspect for leaks."

Radiator Valve: 275.00
Boiler Drain: 145.00
Drain Refill and Purge: 500.00

I'll post pictures in a few...thoughts?

This site is geared towards DIY, not cost estimates
Get several local quotes on the repair & check references
Prices vary widely by area & in many cases by a visual inspectiob
