Smart Options With Pool Table Refelting

By Lisa Williamson

Billiards is a wonderful pastime, and a wonderful inclusion in any home that has the available size for it. Of course, they do tend to take up very large areas, so they are not suitable to every home. Those who have the space are blessed. However, after enjoying the game for several years, the felt may begin to show its way there and tear. Below are smart options with pool table refelting for residents of Denver, CO.

No matter how it is looked at, this is a piece of furniture. Some may be impressively designed with elaborate ornamentation, while others may have straight lines. Very often, and especially in the past, its surface is covered with green felt. Today, with interior design on the mind of many, they prefer to choose better colors that will work better with their existing decor.

In some cases, the need to replace the felt follows an accident with the cue stick. It can be painful for the owner, as it is an added expense, but it can happen, and frequently does happen. Of course, replacement is necessary soon after, otherwise no one can continue to play on the surface until it is repaired.

No matter what the reason is for having to replace the felt, consumers should know that they have choice with regards to felt colors. For instance, a very popular color is camel because, being a neutral color, it works with almost any color scheme, and even more so with other neutrals. Red is another popular color among those that prefer bold colors.

Blue is another popular choice, because it stands out, it is bold, but it's not as hard on the eyes as is the red. Of course, one can always choose the very popular turf green, which still tops the list. No matter which one is chosen, this is a professional job because it must be done to perfection. Otherwise, it will just interfere with the game.

A specialist would come on the site, remove the existing felt, and replace it with a new one, according to the consumer's color choice. Obviously, this should not be left to just anyone to do, as it requires top-notch skills for top-notch results. There is a lot of work involved in replacing the felt, as the table and often the bumpers, will have to be somewhat dismantled.

Because this is such intricate work, and because it requires very fine tuned skills, the replacement certainly comes with a cost. As in all industries that are competitive, some charge more than others. To get the best value, it is recommended to seek out an experienced professional with the best prices.

More often than not, the company representative will provide an estimate after having seen the pool table in question. Some skilled laborers may charge by the hour, while others will give a fixed rate. Most consumers prefer to go with those that provide the fixed rate because, if the individual is having trouble with the installation, the consumer is not charged more than necessary.
