Upholstery is an art form, usually handed down from generation to generation. Hayes Upholstery isn't any different, and has been in operation since 1970 at this exact same location.
Our main business is furniture, followed by commercial and marine.
However, some jobs could be considered out of those realms. Which we love to complete, here are a few examples of out of the ordinary upholstered items.
We made and covered a custom restaurant booth for a residential home, covered a wooden frame made to resemble a baby grand piano, with individual keys in black and white.
Everything rusts on the beach, the local bike shop said even glass and wood rust on the beach. We have made covers for all sorts of outdoor items from grills, television covers to custom kitchens.
We enjoy our work, and encourage our customers to stop by. We are firm believers in producing quality products, everything is handmade and customized for each specific job and customer. We are not a reseller of items made overseas, you will not receive any mass-produced items that you would find in supercenters or furniture stores.
Hayes Upholstery, INC FAQ
1. How long does it take to reupholster?
On average, the turnaround time depends on your project and our current workload, smaller items are about 2 to 3 weeks. Larger items are usually about 6-12 weeks. Upon receiving a deposit, we will put you on the schedule and provide you with the shortest turnaround time your project allows. If we are unable to complete your project within this time period, you will have been informed, before the project is started.
2. Is my furniture worth reupholstering?
In most cases it will be. If it has a good frame, is constructionally sturdy, has lasted for 10 years or more and is comfortable, then reupholstery is a good choice.
3. Is it cheaper to buy new furniture?
You get what you pay for! Reupholstery can cost as much as moderately priced new furniture. When comparing make sure they are of similar quality and that the fabric is of a comparable quality. It is doubtful that you will find a new piece of similar quality to your old piece and if you do, the cost would be far greater than reupholstering. Beware of cheap new furniture. It is cheap because the fabric and the construction is cheap. Within a very short time you may well regret buying this cheap furniture.
4. Can I supply my own fabric?
We will work with your fabric. We also cannot be responsible for the condition or quality of your fabric. We take the utmost care to provide you with the best possible results with the fabric that you provide. However, we are unable to provide any warranty if you supply your own materials.
5. What fabric should I look to use?
Depends on your needs. If your going to use the fabric for scatter cushions, then a light cotton should do the job. If you have heavy traffic on your furniture then a good quality fabric that is durable, will wear well and last. There is no right or wrong way in looking for fabric. It's all about personal choice. Do you prefer patterns? What colors make you happy? What textures feel right to you? On the practical side; how durable do you need the fabric to be? On the maintenance side; how cleanable is the fabric? Does it show up dirt and lint or stains? Mid tone fabrics with patterns show dirt less than a light colored fabric. Dark colors will show dust and lint more easily, while solid fabric with no texture will show stains more easily. Ultimately the choice is yours. You must live with your choice. We will happily assist and advise you on choosing the fabric that meet your needs.
6. How much fabric do I need?
If you do not see the information that you need to help you figure out how much fabric you are going to need, please e-mail of call us and we will gladly help you with figuring the yardage.
7. What is pattern matching?
All patterned fabrics have a repeated pattern down their lengths and match horizontally across their width. The interval at which a pattern is duplicated or repeated on a piece of fabric is known as the repeat. This is calculated from a point in one pattern to the same point in the next pattern. This means that all the cut lengths have to start at the same point in the pattern so that they match where they are joined.
8. Do you strip the furniture before you recover?
If your project requires it, absolutely. We strip the furniture to the frame. All woodwork, springs, fillings, webbing and padding are thoroughly checked before we begin the upholstery process. We will notify you if any repair/replacement is needed and the cost that would be incurred.
9. If you find broken framework do you repair it?
Yes we do. Not only does the frame give support to the inner parts of a chair and covering, but to the person sitting on it. A broken frame can cause injury to the person sitting on the chair. So it is important that the frame is structurally sound. Before any upholstery work is done, we check the frame very carefully and notify you if a repair is needed to be carried out.
10. What is involved in reupholstery of my furniture?
Briefly; we remove old covering and filling to the bare frame. We check the frame for motion and stability and if necessary replace worn joints or repair them. We inspect springs, webbing etc and replace if required. We retie coil springs, replace the fillings and padding with new if necessary. We trace, cut and sew fabric components and apply these to your frame. We add finishing trims and finally the finished product is inspected for quality and workmanship. If any additional costs are incurred you will be notified of your possible options and pricing.
11. Do you give free quotes?
We can try to give you an estimate of the costs over the phone by your brief description of the item to be upholstered, however we prefer you to send a picture via e-mail:
12. Do you repair woodwork?
Yes. we can provide small repairs or staining. If the project is past our skills, we work with a nearby full operating woodshop, that offer re-staining, touch-up, clean up, wood replacement, and carving.
