The dimensions of your game room will determine the size of the pool table you can purchase so that you can enjoy a comfortable playing experience. If you’re interested in a used pool table be sure to ask the seller for the pool table dimensions, specifically the playing surface area since this is the true size of the pool table and it helps to figure out the appropriate pool table room size and the right cut of pool table cloth in case you need to have the pool table refelting service taking care of during the setup.
Importance of having the correct pool table sizes if you need to have a pool table refelting service
The industry norm is supplied, pre-cut pool table felt for the refelting service. If an 8-foot table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9-foot table then we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job which could also incur additional trip charges.
If the pool table turns out to be a different size this could really complicate the job for the pool table installers because the table may not fit in the room and also the cut of felt may not cover the entire table. In most cases, this will change the price of the service, whether it is a pool table setup, installation or a complete move.
Sometimes there could be a repair that may have gone unnoticed at the time of the purchase and you find out about it once the pool table is in pieces. If said repair is minor we may be able to fix it right at the time of installation, however, if the issue requires additional materials that we were not aware of we will have to come back for a second appointment to properly handle your pool table repair. Pool table room sizes are important for a successful job and it’s super handy to know when checking the pool table size you can get.
