Car Headliner Repair Costs
The cost of repairing or replacing car headliners depends on the make, model and year of the vehicle. Repair costs also depend on how long the headliner repair requires to complete. To give some context, the cost of repairing the headliner of a VW Jetta is almost twice as expensive when compared to repairing the headliner of a Japanese car like Honda or Nissan. This has nothing to do with the upholstery repair shop of the personal preferences of headliner upholsterers. It mainly because the engineering and manufacturing process of German vehicles is complex than the Japanese made cars, which makes repairs on any sections or components of German cars expensive and time-consuming.
Headliner Quick Fix Mistakes
There are people who claim that you can save money by spraying fabric paint on a damaged headliner instead of repairing it in a conventional manner with foam-backed fabric. This is a bad technique. It looks terrible and will decrease the value of your car. Some say you can save money by regluing the old fabric to the headliner board. Sadly, this is also not possible. When the headliner degrades, everything from the foam, fabric, and board adhesive turn to dust. Stapling the sagging fabric to the headliner board is also a really bad idea. It will work for a while, but the fabric will still droop and the whole thing will look saggy.
