If the pool table turns out to be a different size this could really complicate the job for the pool table installers because the table may not fit in the room and also the cut of felt may not cover the entire table. In most cases, this will change the price of the service, whether it is a pool table setup, installation or a complete move.
The industry norm is supplied, pre-cut pool table felt for the refelting service. If an 8-foot table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9-foot table then we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job which could also incur additional trip charges.
Please be aware that if a pool table repair went unnoticed at the time of the purchase and you find out about it once the pool table is in pieces. If said repair is minor we may be able to fix it right then if the issued needs other materials that we were not aware of we will have to come back for a second appointment.
