Bring it in to SugarHouse to repair any rips and tears on your boat cover and update your marine carpet/flooring and upholstery. We’ll get your boat ready for the water. 

Updating all of these things not only make your boat look brand new but they can improve the function and life of your boat. Let’s look at some of the benefits.

Benefits of Repairing a Boat Cover

When you first notice a rip or tear in your boat cover, make sure to repair it quickly since it can become irreparable if you wait too long. Here are a few benefits of repairing:

  • Protection: Repairs to a boat cover can restore its ability to protect the boat from the elements.
  • Longevity: Repairing damage to the cover can extend its lifespan and prevent the need for a costly replacement.
  • Aesthetics: Repairing tears or holes in the cover can improve its appearance and maintain its aesthetic appeal.
  • Cost savings: Repairs to a cover are often less expensive than purchasing a brand new cover.
  • Convenience: Fixing the cover on a boat can ensure it is ready for use when needed, avoiding downtime and inconvenience.

We have skilled repair experts who are highly trained to take those pesky little rips and make them whole again. Most repair jobs are in and out within a week.
