Understanding an upholstery quote: Why some places cost more than others.

by Tavy at Howard's on 02/22/11

To put it simply, as in most things in life, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, this adage proves true especially in custom upholstery and reupholstery.  There are so many ways to cut corners in this industry, including but not limited to using inferior parts (foam, wood, staples, thread, nails, and more) which will significantly affect the life of your furniture.  In addition, many inferior (less expensive) upholsterers will not remove the old fabric, do necessary prep work, or have the experience to upholster your funiture properly, also resulting in a less than desirable result, affecting the life and look of your price piece.  To avoid redoing your furniture again, and paying twice, or settling for inferior quality of work we recommend finding a qualified upholsterer that strives to provide the highest quality of work like HOWARD'S CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY.
