Sagging sofa

Sofa is only 3 years old and really really sags.
The manufacturer came and worked on it one time and that didn't fix it. Put new springs in UNDER the cushions. Still sags badly.
NEver had a sofa do it to this extent when it's this old.

Suggestions? Sofa savers? Plywood?
The upholstery and fabric are in perfect condition.
Thanks.

If the cushions are removable setting plywood under them would help but it really sounds like it's time to get another couch. Sad to say but it sounds like that one was poorly made

I believe so too. Just trying to see how these sofa savers work.
Never again will I buy from that furniture company.

I would call the company that sent out the first repair guy and explain they didn't fix the problem. When a warranty problem is serviced under the warranty it extends the time frame. Of course they might say you have waited too long. but good companies will try to satisfy their customers, so give them a chance.

Otherwise, get some help and flip it over and see if you can spot what is loose or broken. If it is the cushions that's one thing. But if the frame is disconnected that can be an easy fix.

Is the sofa sagging or is it the cushions? Sometimes they use a cheap foam or filling in the cushions, which will make them sag. If it's the cushions, a high density foam would solve the problem. Putting plywood or something under them won't help.

It was just a junky sofa. They came and 'repaired' it once. It was as bad as it was before.
Lesson: no more furniture from this popular furniture company where you pick it out on the floor and they order it. We ended up replacing it and giving that junky one away.
