The most common type of zipper repair is to replace the zipper slider.  Does the zipper not stay together when you zip up the jacket?  That’s a zipper slider replacement.  Since all garments are created differently, the price ranges below represent that fact:  does your garment have a draft flap?  Is it a 2-layer or 3-layer jacket?  Is there binding on the back side of the zipper? This effects how much labor goes into getting the repair done correctly, and why there is a price range for the repairs below.
