Default How much to have new leather couch repaired?

Our newly enjoyed puppy decided to make the new leather couch a chew toy today. How much can I expect a small repair (about 2in x 3in hole) cost to have professionally repaired?

If you want to have it looking almost as good as new then I'm afraid probably quite a lot.

If you're lucky and it's stitched in several panels then they may be able to remove one complete panel with a very close match, otherwise if it's a whole section then you're boned.

Been there, spent £100

Ours covered any damage... pet, psycho girlfriend, facial session gone wild...

I took the long-term warranty because I knew there was an issue with the handles for the recliners. Changed them twice + a new couch for the tissue rip.

Check the warranty first and see what you are covered for and just say it was something else

I cant help but think of auto body work. If it's a generic brown and easy to match then just 'slap' a new one in. If it isnt matchable then it could need a custom dyed piece made. And cloth items are built in a specific order. Half or more of it may need to be takin apart to insert the new.

Well it's on the top part of the cushion, basically where your upper back legs go. And I don't think I could claim it wasn't a dog, or something of the sorts because she also got to the foam padding under neath too. So it'd be fairly obvious. I will check the warranty tonight though.


Couch is black btw.

They will want to replace the whole piece. A little rip or puncture is fixable. Something like that they'll replace the damage piece as a whole. If not under warranty, it's expensive to have it done right. My last incident they wouldn't touch because it was a high stress area even though my kid put a hole in it with scissors. It's in between the cushions. Here is my repair:
