Upholstery and Reupholstery FAQs

A: In most cases it will be. If it has good frame, is constructionally sturdy, has lasted for 5-10 years or more and is comfortable than re-upholstery is a great choice
Q: Isn’t it cheaper to buy new furniture?
A: You get what you pay for. At times, reupholstery can cost as much as moderately priced new furniture. When comparing make sure they are of similar quality both construction and fabric, the cost of high quality furniture is far greater then re-upholstering therefor it is smart to re-use your existing piece. Beware of cheap new furniture that are manufactured with poor materials, they do not hold-up and within short time you will regret that purchase.
Q: What is involved in re upholstery of my furniture?
A: In a nutshell; we remove old covering and filling to the bare frame, we check the frame for motion and stability and address any necessary repairs, we inspect springs, webbing and replace if required, we retie coil springs, replace padding and foam filling as necessary and finally, trace cut and sew fabric components and apply this to the frame, as a final touch we add finishing and trims of any kind, only then the item goes through inspection for quality of workmanship, when passed and approved it is ready for delivery.
