Comparing Plumbs to another Reupholsterer

There are upholstery companies all across the U.K. offering different levels of service and craftsmanship. Quotations for reupholstery work can vary enormously as there is a wide variation in quality of work as well as differences in the upholstery services that companies offer.

Did you know some reupholstery companies do nothing more than replace your existing outer fabric without giving any consideration to the repair and renovation of the insides of your furniture?

Trust is so important, thats why Plumbs offer a solid 3 year guarantee on every piece of furniture we reupholster. Your deposit is safe, and you are dealing with a respected and professional Reupholsterer who has been in business for over 50 years. 

Sarah Page - Managing Director

We're so confident in our fabrics and workmanship - all our products come with a 3 Year Quality Guarantee. It’s also good to know that Plumbs are long-standing members of the Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers and the Furniture Industry Research Association.
