Seat Burn Repairs

Seat burns are generally caused when a cigarette is accidently dropped onto the seat whilst the driver is in motion or stationery. The burning embers of the cigarette will burn through the outer layer of the seat and into the foam cushion. The best type of fix is to have the seat re upholstered which involves losing the car for a few days and can be expensive. Scuff n chips offer a service which can repair the burn by using different types of fibres to fill in the seat burn. It's not 100% invisible when finished but if you didn't know there was a seat burn there then you would never notice it. Cost can vary from burn to burn, average cost are between £35 - £75.
