Albo restoration did an incredible job on my Toyota FJ cruiser truck headliner. My original headliner had a crushed corner and a hole in it. There talented team pulled the liner, rebuilt the corner, fixed the hole, put it all back together and made it look like new. Such a great job!!! Irene is a joy to work with and I enjoyed our conversations. I absolutely can't recommend them enough !

Irene and staff at Albo did a great job of fixing and restoring my stationary exercise bike seat. It’s as good as new and Irene turned around this job in one day! I highly recommend this company!

Had the front seat of the BMW convertible reupholstered with leather. Each of the arm rests also received new leather - the doors and the middle. The work is exceptional!!! Irene is a charm to work with and her partner has a perfect eye for color matching. He cleaned and updated the color on the passenger leather seat. The imperfections are completely gone. Fabulous.  Albo is the place to have replacement or custom work done. THANK YOU!!

I bought a used Chrysler Town & Country, the leather on the driver's seat was torn, the dealer said he would get it fixed. After three months dealer did nothing, his "guy" never returned their calls, I told the dealer I would get it fixed and he agreed to pay for it. I got two estimates and one was from Albo Restoration, they were $50.00 higher than the other estimate, but I decided on Albo because I was impressed by how professional and friendly they were. They did a great job, I am very happy. I am giving the dealer Albo's name & phone number because they answer the phone, not like the dealer's "guy".

The side bolster on the driver’s seat of my 5 year old Subaru developed a wear crack. Albo rebuilt the bolster with new material and foam so well that it’s absolutely indistinguishable from the original. The new foam makes the seat a little more comfortable which is a nice, unexpected  plus. Excellent work at a fair price. I wouldn’t hesitate a moment to use them again or recommend them to my best friend.

I had the interior of my car reupholstered including seats and side panels. They did great work and I would not hesitate to go back or refer family and friends to them!

I took in my 2007 TL to get a bit of custom work and repairs on my seats and I'm blown away by the quality of work that Irene and her team have done. They have fair prices and are the best upholstery shop in the Lake/Cook county area in my opinion. Irene gave me a time as to how long everything would take and they definitely stick to their deadline which is awesome. I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone and will definitely be taking my future projects to Irene.

In 2018 I brought my 2004 Chrysler Crossfire in to have the headliner replaced. The materials that Albo Restoration used was perfect!  Irene talked me through the process and price. The vehicle was promised on the day she said. They did a beautiful job. I would recommend them to everyone.

We had the interior furniture of our motor home reupholstered.  I can’t say enough good things about our experience.  Irene and her staff made our furniture look brand new.  She is very knowledgeable about fabrics and has a great eye for color.  I would not hesitate to use Albo Restoration again.  I highly recommend them.

I had an excellent experience with Albo restorations.  They recovered my front seat in my 2005 Chevy Silverado.  The workmanship far exceeded my expectations, the leather matched perfectly, and the final cost was exactly as I was quoted.
