Our Marine Upholstery Repair Process

During repair, we access the state of the watercraft to identify areas that need upholstery repair or replacement. We discuss this with our clients and offer guidance on fabrics and styles to work with. Most of the time, the repair requires us to take apart the seats, panels, engine covers, or sundecks, which can be done by the client or by us depending on what was negotiated during the estimate. Keep in mind, we can always provide an estimate during the summer and then do the repairs in the winter while the boat is in storage so you don't miss a beat of summer.

I had my boat seats reupholstered with a challenging repair of the double-wide captain's chair that had much hardware involved. The vinyl colors, cushions and stitching are beautiful and while I thought the cost was a bit pricey, the quality of the finished product is excellent. The seats reinstalled perfectly and I would recommend Albo to anyone; I'll be returning for more work in the future.

I just picked my boat up from Albo Restoration Services, and all I can say is "wow".  I cannot remember the last time that I purchased something, or paid  for a service where my expectations were exceeded.  Irene's expertise and knowledge were a great help when it came to picking the small details of the project.  This project turned out far better than I had expected, and I am grateful to Irene and the entire staff at Albo Restoration Services for not only spectacular work, but delivering on time, and on budget.  This was not a small project by any means, and was not just a re-upholster, but rather a complete color change and redesign.  The results are incredible.  If you need anything upholstered, I highly recommend Albo Restoration Services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average cost to repair marine upholstery in Chicagoland?

Arrow icon

This would vary depending on the nature of the boat and the extent of repair to be made. On average, expect to spend $500 to $1,000 or more.

How much time is required to reupholster a boat?

Arrow icon

Reupholstering a boat requires a lot of processes and, in most cases, is not straightforward. If it is a small watercraft, you can expect a small repair to be done in a day or two. However, reupholstering of the full boat can take up to a couple of weeks or more, depending on the size of the boat and how much repair needs to be done.

I don’t see my boat. Can you still help me?

Arrow icon

If you feel the repair should be completed but you've not seen your boat yet, you can always contact us to place an inquiry about this. But largely, we ensure we finish repairs in time. Should the restoration take longer than expected, we will also contact you to inform you.
