cracked valve seat

My cart is still in the process of having the intense short block installed. Today the machine shop called and said there are 5 cracks around the exhaust valve seat from a piece of piston going throught the valve. They are magnafluxing them and said they'll get back to me with a price to fix them. What does this typically cost, and what is invloved. Need answers kinda fast if possible so I can tell if they are dicking me around. Thanks

They are probably fluxing to see how deep the cracks are.
If the cracks are deeper than the heat treating on the seat, then I would replace the head casting.
