Determine Your Pool Table Room Dimensions
Measure from tip of bumper to tip of bumper across the width of your pool table to find your table size. You can find your room dimensions required by determining what size your pool table is. This is especially important when calling for pricing, refelting or moving because this will change the pricing on both services.
You want to make sure that when you call us you know the size of the table, for an 8-foot table for example pricing for service or repair will be set, should the pool table installer arrive to the job and find that an 8-foot table is really a 9-foot table it could really complicate the job and in most cases will change the price of a move job.
When refelting a pool table, our industry-standard at this time is pre-cut billiard cloths. 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.
In other words, it’s a really good idea to know the size of the pool table before ordering service.
Where to measure the pool table?
When measuring the pool table it is important to know where to measure it to determine its size. Pool table room dimensions can be tricky.
For example, you may have a corner that interferes with the play of the table, if your pool table room size dimensions are short you should really consider how the table will be placed in the room.
For shorter rooms, there are always small cue sticks to get you out of a jam. Our professionals can advise you of the necessary items and give you pointers on where to place the pool table during our professional installation.
Some people may measure from one extreme of the table to the other, but this is incorrect. The proper way to measure the table is from one side of the playfield to the other.
