Altogether, with fabric and labor, I paid $900 to have my sofa reupholstered.

I estimate that a new sofa of comparable quality, if it were available, would be around $2,200 - $2,500.

That's what you really have to consider, if you'd rather keep the piece you already have or get a new one. We have two sofas in our family room. One is old -- as in 1825ish old -- and the other is your basic L-shaped sectional. We paid about $700 to have the old one reupholstered, and the craftsman rebuilt a couple of missing rungs. We don't even want to think about what buying something similar would cost, but it would be a lot more than $700. The sectional, though, is getting worn, and when it finally goes we're just going to buy a new one.
