You have to understand that an upholstery shop has more overhead, and also more tools and equipment. The customer is also paying extra for my quality and expertise. $450 to $550 is still pricey. If I don't have to repair any seat springs or fix or replace seat foam, I would charge $300 to $350 for a basic bench like that. That would be 2 1/2 to 3 yards of marine grade vinyl and the labor. I also replace or add new decking to old seats.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
