Full Answer

Since there are so many types of couches made with varied materials, it is hard to distinguish a single average weight. Some couches use wooden legs and framework, while others use metal. A small futon can be as light as just over 200 pounds, while a four-seated sectional reaches up to 1,050 pounds or more. Certain features cause a couch to be heavier, such as having reclining capabilities. This requires more metal mechanisms, which increase the weight of a couch.

  • Q:

    How do you install couch springs?

    A:

    To install couch springs, turn the couch over so the springs are accessible. Remove any fabric, mesh covering and top wire framing. If the couch has old springs, remove these springs by cutting them out of the tape-web, then remove the existing tape-web. Measure the length of the tape-web and count the allotted springs on each strip of tape-web. Cut the new springs to the proper height and attach them to the new tape-web with a slipknot. Reinstall the tape-web.
