Should You Reupholster or Replace Church Furniture

Cost of reupholstering vs replacing church furniture


One of the key services McPhail offers churches is reupholstery service – a valuable tool in protecting both your investment in your existing church seating and respecting your budget


For about a third of the cost of new pews, McPhail can come into your sanctuary and beautify your existing furniture within a few days, bringing new life to your church seating, be it pews, pulpit chairs, or supplemental seating.  We work on any size project, and work around your church schedule so services aren’t disrupted. Most of our work is done by our McPhail reupholstery team on site, with minimum disruption to your church family.


Why choose McPhail for reupholstering church furniture?

McPhail Church Services has worked for years to perfect our process, and in fact we have a proprietary upholstery/reupholstery process that is highly valued by thousands of churches around the country. We’re so confident you’ll love our services that we offer a 15-year warranty on our church pew upholstery. You can see examples of our fine craftsmanship to get an idea of what we can do for your sanctuary seating.

In addition, we have long and trusted relationships with the best fabric mills in the country, so we can provide you with the finest choices in upholstery that is attractive, durable, and reasonably priced.   We multi-source our fabric which allows us to guarantee quick delivery and timely completion of your project.  

Our large variety of fabrics are all women in U.S., using domestic yarns. We even warranty the fabric, which is woven to stand up to years of commercial use.

Hand in hand with attractive durable fabric is the pew padding. McPhail Church Services uses top of the line high density upholstery foam (LUX foam) that is renowned for durability, comfort, and its ability to retain its shape for years despite repeated use. Both the compression and size of the foam affect comfort, so we’ll work with you to determine the best choice for your congregation. 

McPhail Church Services is the industry leader in pew upholstery and reupholstery and can offer you significant value when you choose to refurbish your existing pews with reupholstery service. Our on-staff consultants will walk you through every step of the process, from initial consultation through the fabric pattern and color selection to the final product.

For pricing questions, we are happy to give you an initial idea of cost over the phone (910-322-5673) or online so you can determine if reupholstering is an attractive option for beautifying your church seating.

In addition, McPhail Church Services offers church pew refinishing, wood restoration, and provide church pew parts and repair, and manufacture lay-in pew cushions for an affordable option to traditional upholstered pews.
