A game of pool is all about precision, strategy, and skillful execution. However, there’s an often overlooked yet crucial element that significantly influences the quality of gameplay: the level of the pool table. At Mr. Cue’s Billiards, we understand the importance of a perfectly level pool table, so you can trust that we won’t overlook this crucial pool table repair.


The Importance of a Level Surface

A level pool table isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. It directly affects the accuracy of ball movement and the overall gaming experience. Imagine trying to sink a challenging shot only to have the ball swerve unexpectedly due to an uneven surface. That’s why maintaining a level playing field is a top priority for any pool table service company.


Re-leveling is an essential element of pool table repair. Let’s take a look at how it’s done.


How We Re-Level a Table

At Mr. Cue’s Billiards, our dedicated technicians employ a meticulous process to re-level pool tables, ensuring an optimal gaming environment. Here’s a glimpse into our re-leveling procedure:

  • Initial Assessment: Our skilled technicians begin by thoroughly assessing the table’s current level. They check for any noticeable unevenness and identify potential problem areas.
  • Disassembly: If required, the table’s components are carefully disassembled, including the rails, pockets, and felt. This step is essential to access the table’s frame and ensure a comprehensive re-leveling.
  • Frame Inspection and Adjustment: The table’s frame and legs are examined for signs of wear, damage, or misalignment. Our technicians precisely adjust the table’s structure to restore its level state.
  • Slate Calibration: The slate bed is a critical part of the pool table, and any irregularities in its alignment can significantly affect gameplay. Our technicians meticulously level each slate piece and ensure perfect alignment, creating a seamless playing surface.
  • Cushion Alignment: The rubber cushions that line the rails play a vital role in ball rebound. Our experts ensure these cushions are correctly aligned and in optimal condition to maintain consistent bounce and gameplay dynamics.
  • Reassembly and Felt Replacement: Once the structural elements are correctly aligned, we reassemble the pool table. If the felt has seen better days, our technicians replace it with precision to guarantee a smooth and even playing surface.
  • Final Testing: Before deeming the job complete, we conduct thorough testing to ensure that the table is indeed level and ready for action. We roll balls, take shots, and make adjustments until we achieve perfection.
