Re-Upholster vs New
You have some careworn chairs or other seating - maybe outdated bench seating cushions or lounge chairs. You can get the replacement cost rather easily. But what about the reupholstery cost? Two ways to get started: call us at 800-889-8858 - we'll ask you some questions, discuss application and fabric and get the numbers to you. Or get more specific with an Upholstery Quote...
1) Take a photo of your furniture
Grab your cell phone or camera and take a photo diagonally across the furniture. Frame the picture so it indicates the length, height and depth of the furniture (like the one above). Take more than one if you want to highlight any details.
2) Email us the photo and details
Open your favorite email program and start a message to us. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or click on the little envelope over there to do it automatically. Write a brief overview of what you are interested to do with your furniture. Give a few details such as quantities, intended use, and any special conditions you want considered. Attach the picture(s) you took to the email. Or just paste them right in. Send us the email.
3) Look for our answer!
We will respond to your email quickly - usually within the same day or less.
Please note that reupholstery estimates will be for the labor portion only since the fabric will be undetermined. We can give you a thumbnail of the fabric cost and yardage.
Getting It Done
Any remodeling work in a busy setting presents some challenges. A few ways we can structure and schedule re-upholstering your furniture may make it easier.
Scheduled Down Time
If you are doing other office renovation work such as painting, carpets, new partitions, etc and have planned to close during the construction, we can pick up the furnishings at the beginning and return them at the end of the construction.
Dividing the furniture into smaller groups that still allow your facility to function is a tactic often used for common area furnishings or larger quantities. We pick up the first group, return them and take away the next group in a series until all the furniture is complete.
Off Hours Turnaround
Smaller sized facilities can't just call the property department and have temporary seating wheeled in while the main seating is being recovered. What to do? Rent some chairs? If you want to collaborate a little - here's how we can help.
- Get the details ironed out: costs, fabric, counts
- Before the fabric ships we come get one sample of each type to be reupholstered (for patterns)
- When the fabric arrives, we cut and sew everything
- Schedule to pick up and work all the pieces when you are closed
- Deliver them before you next open
