Nothing can give you the old car blues more that torn auto upholstery. It happens to just about every car at one time or another and now that we are keeping our cars longer it is happening to even more of us.
This does not mean we have to accept this wear and tear. There are a couple of different ways we can restore our auto upholstery erasing those visible years of use.
Auto upholsterytakes a significant amount of daily abuse and under high tension given the way it's made firm to support you while driving or riding. Of course, you could use automobile seat covers but before spending that money give these lower cost options a try. Once fixed, you could fall in love with your car all over again.
First thing to do is to have an upholstery professional analyze the seat or interior for any possibility to be repaired. Have them price a seat repair and a complete seat cover. Danny’s Upholsteryin Virginia Beach offers free estimates! Walk-ins are always welcome or call 757-363-5889.
There are many reasons seat covers and fabrics wear out. Did the fabric rip due to stress on a seam? Did something cut into the fabric? Has the leather cracked and/or faded over time? Did it tear because you need a more durable fabric?
Seat coverscan also be worn away from infant car seats rubbing on the auto upholstery. This can be an easy fix, since many times only a section of the seat cover needs to be replaced.
If the rip to your auto upholstery is on the seam near the edge it is sometimes possible to sew back together.
Danny’s Upholsterysuggests having an auto upholsterer replace the actual insert or section to complete the repair if you aren’t looking for a new look and if matching upholstery fabric is available. Many times, factory original fabric can be ordered to match the existing material as close as possible.
