Webbing Repairs

Leather Repairs specialise in all aspects of leather repairs and furniture repairs, we offer all our repairs on site with no need for the furniture to be removed from your home.

Below we have two examples of webbing repairs that have been undertaken both in the customers home, they have both been completed within 1 – 2 hours with minimal fuss to the customer.

Ercol 3str Sofa

The Ercol 3str which the seat base webbing has started to fail, the original webbing is the long standing Pirelli webbing which has lasted for over 20 years, over time the pirelli webbing starts to loose its stretch and goes hard and brittle which then causes the webbing to start to break and fail.

We start by removing the old Pirelli webbing so we have a clean base frame to start with, we do not try to save any of the old webbing we are aiming for a whole new base. Once striped we start by inserting are new cut to size elastic webbing straps which are attached to the frame using staples. Once the new webbing straps have been re tensioned and fitted the sofa base is ready to use for many more years.

Leather 3str Sofa

The leather 3str webbing has started to over stretch which has caused the webbing to get caught on frame and start to tear, we have started by removing the dust cover on the sofa, once the dust cover has been removed it allows use full access to the seating pan. We then remove the seating pan which is held in place by 12 12m fixing bolts, once this section is removed. Now we peel back the leather and move the seat foams which leaves us with the webbing base.

We remove all the old damaged webbing straps and start replacing with the new webbing, these are re tensioned to size and attached by staples. Once the new webbing has been replaced we can start with the re build, re fitting the seat foams and leather cover, re bolting the seating unit back in to the frame and re attaching the dust cover.
