Get Ready for The Boating Season with ColorBond Boat Upholstery Paint
Posted on March 06 2020
Spring is almost here, and summer is coming! Time to get your boat “ship shape” for the season. Part of this preparation should include cosmetics, as a boat interior can fade and discolor over time and restoring it cannot only make it look better but also increase the resale value if you decide to sell.
Reupholstering the interior is an option, and an expensive one at that. Vinyl fabrics are mostly used in marine upholstery and cost about $40 to $60 per square yard. An upholstery job to re-skin of a typical 25-foot boat could cost several thousand dollars. Consider the typical costs reupholstering these components:
- Helm’s Chair - $325.00
- Back to Back Seat - $600.00
- Combing - $30.00 per foot
- Bow Cushion - $300.00
However, what if you could refinish these components to look new, rather than reupholstering? ColorBond LVP Refinisher boat upholstery paint is perfect for restoring a like new appearance at a fraction of the cost of reupholstering.
- Now consider the typical costs of refinishing these same components using ColorBond LVP Refinisher:
- Helm’s Chair – Two cans at $16.49 each = $32.98 vs. $325.00 for reupholstering
Back to Back Seat – Three cans at $16.49 each = $49.47 vs. $600.00 for reupholstering
- Combing (assuming two 60” x 6” coaming bolster pads) – One can at $16.49 vs. $300.00 for reupholstering
For those components the cost to refinish would total $1,225.00 vs. $99.00 for refinishing with ColorBond LVP Refinisher. Less than 1/10th the cost for a like new appearance!
Not only are these restorations easy and affordable for the do-it-yourselfer, ColorBond's durability will ensure the paint will never flake, chip, or peel. Get ready for the boating season and order your boat upholstery paint and let us know if you get the same great results!
