How much does it cost to replace a jacket zipper?
Jacket zipper repair cost depends on the material of the jacket, the zipper’s size to be replaced, and the material used to make the zipper.
The price range is between 20 to 70 dollars. Labour is charged separately from the price of the spare zipper. For delicate materials such as leather, the charges may be slightly higher than that of other materials.
Zippers that are longer in size cost more than the short ones. You may decide to carry your own zipper if it’s available, or buy it at our shop and pay for it as you pay for the cost of labour.
It is always advisable to first understand what kind of repair needs to be done on your jacket zipper. Sometimes, all that’s required is a little stitching on the edges, while at other times, the whole zipper slide needs to be done away with and replaced with a new one. With this knowledge, you can save time and money because some of the work can be turned into a do-it-yourself activity.
