Dura Bilt Upholstery Testimonials

Hi James,


Phil and I want to thank you for the great upholstery job on our couch and love seat. The whole experience was hassle free from start to finish due to your professionalism, guidance,  and patience.


We felt very comfortable with our decision to reupholster instead of buying new furniture after you inspected the pieces and critiqued their overall quality and condition.  As I browsed through the numerous fabric books, I often asked your opinion on the fabric content durability and you didn’t hesitate to guide me in the right direction.  


We are very happy with the workmanship and the end result and we look forward to working with you again in the future.


Thanks Very Much,

Diane Milavec

James @ The Dura Bilt crew,


Our sleeper sofa you recently reupholstered looks better now than when we purchased it new from Ethan Allen over 20 years ago.  Outstanding workmanship is evident in the final product.   We recently did a makeover in our living room (new paint & carpeting) and the sleeper sofa really brings the décor all together.  All involved from Dura Bilt, from picking up to delivering back to my home were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and extremely gracious.  They even took the time to help me move our grand piano back into the living room after I had new carpet installed.  I highly recommend Dura Bilt to any and all future customers.


Happy in Painesville, Cheryl & James Bake

My Mother's classic arm chair was very close to a trip to the Good Will as it 

just did not fit into my decorating scheme at all.....however, I really didn't 

want to part with her favorite chair. When I finally saw a picture of an 

upholstered chair with upholstery material that I just loved I 

decided to bite the bullet and reupholster the chair. We had to wait almost a month for the material to be delivered BUT when I finally saw the finished product I was so happy to see how wonderful the "old lady" looked with her new dress on.....she is absolutely beautiful and I am so happy. 


A wonderful job done and thank you very mucy.

As you know I recently had Dura/Bilt reupholster a thirty-five year old love seat of mine that

was frayed, tattered, faded and had seen better days. I could not be more pleased with the results!

Pickup, reupholstery, and delivery were prompt, professional and within the time frames that you promised. The finished love seat looks and feels like new and is expertly finished and detailed.

Kudos to you for your superb craftsmanship!


You get a five out of five star rating from me. 


Thank you,

Hi James,


The chair looks resplendent! It went from an interesting antique with torn and tattered leather to a true piece of art.

I've received many compliments from those who saw the before and after photos. The chair seems to have come alive and the quality of work is impeccable.

Thank you!


I am so pleased with the work and customer service of Dura Bilt Upholstery!

You can't see the seams, it all matches so well. 

James was so patient while I was choosing between his huge selection of fabrics and even delivers the products to you.

I highly recommend this business!


Highly recommend Dura built for upholstery.

James did a great job on dining room chairs. He was very professional and chairs were done in a timely fashion.


I highly recommend Durabilt to anyone looking for a superior job of reupholstering any piece of furniture. James did an outstanding job on two chairs and I’m already thinking of what other pieces i can bring to him to get the new look he does so well.


Thank you James and staff!!! I will be telling all my friends about you!


I had them stain and re-upholster an antique sofa and matching chair. James is knowledgeable and easy to work with. The quality of work is amazing!

Couldn’t be more pleased!



I absolutely love the reupholstering of my wingback chair.


 After choosing a striped fabric I had no doubt James would do a perfect job, I was not disappointed.


The chair is better than new!!!

Couldn't be happier with the work by James and crew!


Every job has been outstanding. Small and large pieces, all of them beautiful!


We had our 28 yr old Arhaus leather sofa and chair reupholstered. Unfortunately not in leather ($350/yd) but James had some really beautiful look-a-likes...and I am so happy with the outcome. He was a joy to work with! I must have brought home 100’s of books and kept them weeks and he was just fine with that.

Great company to work with. Great work!


Dear James,
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work you did transforming my dining room chairs. They are beautiful and have brought new life to an old set. Your professionalism and expertise was greatly appreciated.
I will be recommending you to my family and friends who need any work done on their furniture.
Again, thank you!

Dear Jim,

Diane and I want to thank you for your superb upholstery workmanship. Our dining room chairs look better than new and the two valences perfectly complement each other. Your choice of materials simplified the selection process. Just as important, your turnaround time met our needs. And, your willingness to deliver and install the valences a bit earlier than planned was a big help and much appreciated.

We have already recommended you to several of our friends. We are so glad to know there continues to be, albeit limited, high quality workmanship and pride in the upholstery field.

Please stay active as the quality you provide is certainly the pride of your workmanship.  In closing a colleague of mine recently said to me, quality can be expensive. I answered, high quality is priceless.

We will admire your work every day.

Nick and Diane Pacitti
