Why should a pro be the only one to install your table?
You want to make sure you get the table installed professionally and leveled out by an expert so the risk of any issues with the table afterward is brought to a minimum. Since we want to make sure our service quality is of the highest, we make sure to take extra care when assembling the table. This does not only cover us for any future issues with the table, but it also covers you, the customer. Since installing pool tables correctly is highly complex, it is a good idea to have a seasoned installer to take care of the job. Our pool table installers know what it takes to make sure all the pieces and parts come together perfectly and if there are any minor issues he can point them out and offer suggestions for any pieces or parts of the table that need fixing or replacing.
Pool table setup process
Initially, we’ll make sure everything is there and the table will be assembled in the right spot. Pool table room sizes may vary depending on the size of the table. We’ll determine if the pool table room is ideal for your particular table before installing it. This is important when choosing where you want the table as it can determine maximum playability. The larger the room dimensions, the better. Once we’ve found the right place for assembly with you we’ll assemble the frame. The most intricate part in assembly is the leveling of the slates. You’ll normally see tables with 3 pieces of slate, each about 150 – 300 lbs depending on your table. Slates can be anywhere from half an inch to two inches in thickness.
The highest precision leveling tools are used to ensure the leveling of the slates. Then we shim the slates and use wedges to get the slate exactly leveled. In most cases, on a used pool table the frame will be a little out of place, due to those heavy slates sitting on them for years prior. Here the wedges and shims come in handy as they’ll elevate the slates so we can make sure all three are perfectly aligned and leveled. Once leveled we’ll take our bonding compound and apply it to the screws and bolt holes in the slates and within the creases between each slate. A good bonding of the slates ensures the smoothest of playing surfaces and should never come loose unless the table is moved, adjusted or tampered with in really any way.

Pricing for assemblies normally differed depending on what kind of table you have. Heavier slates are more difficult to achieve leveling and we would want to know if we need to do a pool table recovering service on the table. Are the bumpers due for replacement? Maybe we need to move the table within the home to get it to the right spot for you. Stairs, distance and type of table play a big part in determining the price.
