    We are in the process of buying a house and the surveyor has spotted a leaking radiator pipe. The copper pipe that sits under the screed in the floor has corroded due to contact with concrete and leaked.

    When I went to view it again, I could see some cladding poking out.
    My questions are

    1. could there still be a leak through the cladding and if there was a leak,
    2. what is a ball park figure for fixing the leak and routing new pipes with cladding preferrably through the concrete wall rather than the floor.

    3. If we plan to replace the conventional boiler in the property with a combi, is this repair worth doing at the same time from a financial point of view.

    No one will be able to give you a price. I’ve encountered this before though and re-routed pipework above FFL to be on the safe side. Yes, if you’re replacing boiler…perfect time to do it.
