Re: Help pinpointing a leak

What does the $3500 entail? If its truly just 3-4 hours of work, and most of it is labor, then no, $3500 isn't. By contrast, if they are cutting everything free, ripping out all of the the old fiberglass, finding the source of the water intrusion, and rebuilding any damage caused by the water, then $3500 starts to sound more realistic. Assuming $100/hour and $1000 worth of parts, equipment, etc., you're looking at 25 hours worth of work (or about 3 working days worth of work, including prep and clean-up). Depending on what they have to do, 3 days isn't that unreasonable.
