Gore-tex jacket in need of seam repair

I have an older 3 layer goretex shell that has been laundered enough so that the goretex seam tape is all falling off and the dwr finish needs refreshing. I can deal with the dwr finish myself, but I would like to know if there is a repair service that can replace the seam tape? The shell is otherwise in excellent condition.

@Barksbackwards , I recommend checking out Rainy Pass Repair. They are a company based in Washington State but will repair garments and gear that are sent to them by mail. Their website is and details of how to send in your shell for repair can be found there. I hope this helps! Happy Adventuring!

I have a similar question about an REI shell I purchased a few years ago.  A seam at the bottom of a pocket is coming apart so that my fingers stick through the pocket.  This is an inside seam.  It looks like I should be able to just glue it back together, but want to know what glue I should use.
