Spring Replacements

With any piece of furniture the springs and webbing are the part that hold everything taught and keeps it all comfy. How the springs and webbing inside furniture are built is an art and it takes years of experience to repair them correctly. If spring and webbing repairs are not done as they should be the frame of the chair can lose shape and become creaky.

Over time Springs and webbing can get weak or even snap which causes the frame to distort and creak, cushions to sink and comfort to go out of the window. It can even lead to back problems as you are not sitting in the correct position as your body compensates for it.

Most well made furniture has coil springs which are sewn or clipped onto a fabric webbing base and then the springs are attached to each other to provide the tension required to keep everything in shape. In this way the weight of someone sitting on the seat is distributed evenly across the surface and the cushion can then do its job of providing comfort..

Choosing the right spring and webbing as a replacement is critical to how furniture will perform.

Fortunately at The Foam Shop we have all the skills and craftsmanship ready to carry out the most professional of repair to expensive and everyday pieces assuring you that your furniture will last as you intended.
