Is my furniture worth re-upholstering/ Why recover instead of buying new?
The problem with buying new furniture today is that the majority of the furniture being manufactured is being built cheaply overseas. If your furniture has a quality frame, or if it has sentimental value to you, reupholstery is for you. We are also able to modify your existing furniture to create a new updated look.
What process do you take to prepare the furniture for re-upholstery?
Here at Privette's Upholstery, every piece of furniture will have the existing fabric removed. In addition to this, we thoroughly inspect the frame, springs and general construction of the furniture, and repair everything as needed. This may include tightening frames, retying springs, and adding padding.
Do you provide a pick-up and delivery service?
Yes, we do provide a pick-up and delivery service for a one time fee of $75 round trip within a 25 mile radius. If you are farther than 25 miles, no worries, we can still provide you with a pick-up and delivery service with an according price.
Can I provide my own material or do I have to buy the material from you?
You are more than welcome to provide your own material. Your labor price will not change whether you buy your fabric from us or provide your own. If you decide to provide your own fabric, we ask that you provide 54" wide upholstery grade material. Also, please contact us about yardage requirements for your furniture as this will change depending on the repeat of the fabric.
My furniture still looks good, but the cushions are not as comfortable as I would like them to be. What can I do?
We frequently have customers telling us how the fabric on their furniture looks new, but the cushions are not holding their shape, and are no longer comfortable. Replacing your existing cushions is one of the easiest ways to bring life back to your furniture. There are a couple of options to replacing or repairing your cushions. We provide top quality, high density foam core cushions, down cushions, and top of the line spring-down cushions. You might say, my cushions aren't in that bad of shape but need a little bit of life to them, we have the answer. A Dacron wrap is a fiber wrap used to bring back the new look and comfort of an older cushion.
Can I change the style of my furniture?
Absolutely. Depending on the frame, there are many modifications we can make to update the look of your furniture. Changing skirt length, or removing them all together is a common alteration we perform. Changing the shape of the arms, legs, or upholstery style are just a few options you can choose to make one piece look completely different.
