Suncover on Jib

I need to change the sunbrella on my jib and was curious what the cost was to do this job. I have about 80 lin/ft and I am sure there is a cost per foot but I could not come up with a number. Anyone out there had theirs replaced recently and what did you pay for the job? Did they wrap the edge or put on a binding tape?
Thanks

Re: Suncover on Jib

I have no idea of costs in your area, but when we did this last year we saved quite a lot of money by removing the old cover and picking all the threads ourselves. I hate paying someone shop rates for grunt labour...

Cheers,

Jim
