Vinyl Repair in Houston Area

Can anybody recommend a good vinyl repair shop in the Houston area? Preferably on the north side around Spring or Conroe. A wakeboard was dropped on top of the back seat and cut the vinyl about 3/4" long. The tear is located on top of the seat where a lot of foot traffic occurs so I want to get it repaired before it gets bigger. Thanks Brandon

Might give Lake Conroe Marine a call. I haven't used them personally but when I looked a couple years ago they were about the only ones on the north side I could find. Also give Dockside a call ask if they can do it (being an MC dealer) or if they have a recommendation.

Thanks lakelife.

I talked to Dockside and they recommended Dr. Vinyl. So I set up an appointment with him for tomorrow. They come to where the boat is. Hopefully it will turn out good. I will post some after shots.

The repair turned out very good. If you don't know its there you won't see it. It took about 45 minutes and $100. He heated up the vinyl, put some putty in the tear, smoothed it out, imprinted a matching vinyl texture and spray painted with a vinyl dye. It has to full cure for three days before using any type of chemical to clean but was dry to the touch a few minutes later. The second picture is a rip along the stitches (I have two seats like this) that he said he can repair. I'm a little hesitant to let him do it because he uses heat and I don't want other stitches around the rip to come undone and make the rip bigger. He said the repair will be more noticeable due to the location.

Anybody ever have a vinyl repair done around the stitching?

That's amazing, I didn't know it was possible to repair vinyl like that.

Give the results the 1st go, I'd be willing to let him have a shot at the 2nd spot... can't look any worse than it does now

Wow I'm very impressed.

I'd let him do the other one too. It's obvious he knows what he's doing.
