Answers to questions we are often asked.
Q: Is re-upholstery expensive?
A: It depends. There is a misconception that re-upholstering is cheaper then buying new; however there are many factors in the upholstery process that can effect the price, so make sure to ask questions and be clear about your needs and budget.
Q: What's the best way to get an estimate?
A: Most people can't haul their furniture back and forth for in person estimates, so the best way is to send a detailed email with plenty of pictures of the piece of furniture with dimensions.
Q: What does the estimate reflect?
A: All estimates given reflect labor cost and some basic material costs. Each piece of furniture is unique and therefore may require different reupholstery applications; that is why it's important to send detailed pictures and specifications about the piece you wish to have reupholstered. Estimates do not include finishing fabric or major restorative work (unless specified by client), cushion insert replacements, nor do estimates included pick up or delivery unless requested.
Q: Do you have fabric to choose from?
A: No. All clients must provide their fabric upon delivery of their piece to the workroom. I can recommend suppliers and retailers if needed, and will inform you on the expected yardage needed for your project.
Q: How long will the entire process take?
A: On average most pieces are allotted 2 - 6 weeks from the date of drop off to the date of pick up. This allows the workroom to have a steady flow without creating too much overlap. All pieces are accepted on a first in first out basis, so it can vary depending on the day or week.
Q: Do you provide pick up/delivery service?
A. In this city the options are endless, but can also be expensive. Most clients prefer to plan their own pick up and delivery. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you are having difficulty finding shipment methods.
