5th cylinder not firing

Mechanic found 5th cylinder not firing:mechanic charged me $125 to figure this out with a compression test. Now mechanic wants to remove head to see if (engine cracked?) estimated cost to fix $1000. Does this sound right? What are the pros and cons of this action? Thank You. Respectfully, Ann
