“Dear PoP,

Your post on window replacement companies prompts me want to make another recommendation request — radiator repair. We just bought a house on NH Ave, and we have a few radiators that are leaking and rusty around the valves – there’s no perceptible leak but clearly water has dripped out at some point and corroded the pipes pretty badly. They need to be fixed before they cause further water damage. I think this is a common problem in these radiators, so I thought there might be others who have had this repaired. Curious as to what this costs and who the best folks are to do it.”

Any recs for radiator repair? Would it just be a good plumber? If so, please your plumber recs as well.
