I can answer questions on disassembling and reassembling sofa's to fit through tight areas. I can also answer questions in regard to recovery/respringing/repair of upholstered goods and types of foam to use. I cannot answer questions in regard to leather products or fabrics and cleaning of such.

Experience in the area

I have 30 years experience in reupholstery and repair of upholstered goods.


Chamber of Commerce


Appeared in Richmond Hill Era Banner for top upholsterer in 2004.


Finished trade school in Toronto at the age of 18 and worked designing furniture until I was 38 years old then I went into business for myself and have been self-employed for 15 years.

What do you like about this subject?

Every job is different and interesting at the same time. I recover old and new furniture which is rewarding to see the outcome of each piece. I take apart sofa's and place them in basements, bedrooms, etc. and put them back together and each time the look of amazement on the customer's faces is overwhelming.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I'm happy with what I'm doing in this field and will evently retire.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Most people didn't know that you could take an arm, back or cut a sofa completely in half and put it back together in the same condition, I do this service.
