Free estimates given by email or in our shop

We Offer Free Estimates 3 Different Ways:

1. Email pictures to us and we will provide a written estimate to you based on what we can see from the picture(s) you provide.  We can get pretty close to the final cost this way.  The estimate will be based upon a fabric that does not need to be centered or matched.   The final cost will depend upon the exact fabric and options you choose which will be outlined on the written estimate we return to you via email.  Our email address is:

2. Text pictures, along with your email address,  to our cell phone - 618-218-7356.   This phone number is for texts and pictures only.  If you would like to speak to us directly, please call our shop number: 618-439-7170

3.  In Shop Estimates: You are always welcome to come to our shop.  We deal with several distributors and  have approximately 230 fabric catalogs with thousands and thousands of samples to view and choose from,  Fabrics are available to us in 1-2 business days.  Please bring your furniture or pictures of your furniture you are considering having done.  Our shop hours are the same as  our fabric distributors - 8am-4pm, Monday - Friday.   We keep these hours so that we can call and verify the availability of fabrics our customer chooses while the customer is still here.   It is also a good idea to call ahead before you come, as we are in/out somewhat and would not want to miss you.   Our shop address is Howard's Upholstery, 17225 Akin Blacktop, Benton, IL  62812    (618) 439-7170

Most of our fabrics are view-able online from the distributor links on the right sidebar of this page,  and most distributors will send out "memo" samples directly to our customers when ordered though us.   These samples are approximately 4" x 6", and there is a small fee for this service.   To use this service, we ask that you first request a written estimate from us.  Once you receive that estimate, review it and if you decide to go forward with your job, we will gladly order memo samples for you.
