A warped head will cause a gasket to fail, the process of replacing the gasket includes checking the head for warped surfaces. At this point it is hard to say what caused the gasket to fail.

Blown head gasket


Well it would really depend on the condition of your engine.
It would take more labor to repair your engine than it would to just replace it. But unless the engine is very damaged it should be cheaper to have your engine fixed. And replacing the head gasket and having the head repaired should be under the price you were given. A head gasket set for a 4 cyl engine is around $100 wholesale.
I would call around and check with other shops next.

How hard is a head gasket repair


Extremely difficult. Usually a shop will charge 6 to 8 hours on 1 head gasket, and they have all the tools. You will have to remove the wiring, hoses, valve train, and the head, replace gasket, check for damage, re-assemble the motor and leak check. Pretty invasive

How hard is it to replace the head gasket or how much would it cost


its not hard if you get either a haynes, or a chilton repair manual, chiltons are more indepth, and have photos, both are available at most part stores, the part store can also give you a quote on the parts, make sure you ask for an upper enine kit, not just a head gasket. this way youll get gaskets for intake, exhaust manifolds, plenum, and intake gaskets, as well as the head gaskets.

The "outside" of the head gasket


no it will just get wore, however I find it hard to believe the gasket is leaking, are you sure it's the gasket and not the water hoses? normally the pressure is so great it would not be a leak it would be the foutain of youth!
