showed up on time at my house. He was very professional and went straight to work. He explained why he had to replace the whole headliner. He worked quickly and quietly. He was professional and courteous.
I would recommend him and use him again in a flash.
was a pleasure to work with and his work is immaculate. We love the size of our old couch, but it was in serious need of an update. He replaced the foam (one seat cushion where there were previously three, three back cushions where there were originally six pillows) and added legs, then upholstered the entire thing in new fabric. ...more His expertise in this field is obvious. He had detailed answers to my questions: i.e., how high the legs should be, how firm the foam should be, etc. He also reupholstered our two wingback recliners.
HIs customer service is excellent. He drove to my house to look over my furniture and give me an estimate. He drove back a few weeks later to pick it up, then brought it back when it was done. No charge. We were having our floors redone, so he was willing to take our furniture a bit early and keep it until he finished another job, freeing us from the problem of schlepping three heavy pieces of furniture around the house during the floor installation. He kept me updated by sending pictures via phone.
The furniture is 100 percent comfortable and beautiful.
is worth every penny. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. "
on Monday, he returned my call within a couple hours, and came to my house two days later on Wednesday. Mr.
arrived promptly as scheduled. He was polite, diligent, did the work at my home, and left the area where he worked clean. He explained that he had previously had a career as an upholsterer ...more working for several local companies and now, retired, he does repair work in customer homes. I failed to ask for an estimate before work began. Mr.
hand-stitched the four frayed areas. I feel like Mr.
did a professional job and I was pleased with the outcome. Obviously, since the furniture is a decade old and I had no replacement fabric, the process involved pulling together the frayed fabric so it could not be made to look exactly like the original the new corners are rounded and the old corners squared). I do feel that Mr.
made the best of the situation and I will no longer feel embarrassed or have to give an explanation as to why an inch of stuffing is poking out of my furniture corners when I have guests over. The repairs took Mr.
5 hours which means the charge breaks down to $70/hour. I did not get a price estimate from any alternate upholstery company. Therefore, I don't know what this would cost elsewhere. But since the only material provided was thread and Mr.
has no shop overhead, I did feel like a labor charge of $70/hours is pricey and therefore gave a lower rating in that category. It is possible that other companies have similar/higher labor charges and my Angie's List rating in the Price category is unjustified. "
"We have an Italian18-year old full leather 2-cushion loveseat with matching sofa. The seat and arm padding has deteriorated to the point that we decided to have it renewed.
and were pleased to learn his schedule allowed him to make a same-day visit to examine the piece and give us an estimate. He arrived ...more punctually, driving a clean late-model van displaying the shop logo.
was friendly and professional. Unfortunately for us, we learned this is a very well-made loveseat that would require stripping the leather and extensive disassembly to do the job right. Replacing the padding would entail virtually rebuilding the piece at a cost greater than our expectation. We're not certain that we want to do that and instead, will shop for a new replacement. If we are price-shocked by the cost for a quality new replacement loveseat, we will reconsider rebuilding this piece and the companion sofa, and in all likelihood we will call on
who did a wonderful job of repairing our loveseat and recliner!
She came to our home within a few days of contacting her about the job.
was prompt, very friendly and a great worker. She restitched the cushions that had become torn away from the top part of the loveseat ...more and now it looks as good as new.
saw that the fabric on the recliner seat had been worn terribly thin, she suggested that we could have her sew the headrest cover over it. We thought that this was a very creative solution to our problem and certainly cheaper than getting the whole chair reupholstered! Even though the size of the headrest cover was a little short of covering the whole seat, you can hardly tell that the seat has been "patched". You can't see the stitches at all!
In addition to being a fantastic upholstery craftsperson,
gave us some helpful hints about upholstery care and cleaning. We will certainly take her advise and order extra fabric the next time we buy upholstered furniture. She also guarantees her work for one year and told us to call her if we had any problems with the work she had done. I would highly recommend her to anyone who need upholstery repair. "
. The reupholstered furniture we got back surpasses our expectations. In 3 of the pieces, we had complex fabric patterns. The way they matched the patterns were incredible. The level of detail that they put into their work was extraordinary. The furniture is BEAUTIFUL!!! The turn-around ...more time was also very quick. They picked up and delivered the furniture, which made it very convenient.
is very personable and professional. This was the best reupholstery experience we've had and will definitely use them in the future. With great delight, I am highly recommending them to our friends!!! "
"Their people were courteous and punctual and completed my installment as expeditiously as I could of expected. They left everything neat and clean and were very professional.I couldn't be more pleased!
"I guess my job dropped in the cracks and stayed there for 3 weeks until I decided to check on progress. Nothing had been started or fabric had not been ordered. Took my money and held it for 3 weeks with no phone calls with regards to delay, etc.
Job should have been completed within 2 weeks. Owner never apologized or took responsibility, etc. ...more Made me feel as though it was my fault
Poor customer service and communications "
