Cast Iron Tub Care
A bit o’ rust on ye ol’ tub? No problem for the boys at Tuff Tubs! One of our latest projects was a cast iron tub rust repair and reglaze. It had old coating with a rusty drain. Tuff Tub Refinishing knows how to cautiously and carefully perform tub resurfacing “surgery.”
Bathtub – Prep
As you can see with this old cast iron tub, its paint job has seen better days. The first step in tub reglazing is to prep for the primer. With peeling paint, we sand down the old surface. This allows it to have bonding properties and to smooth out the bathtub. This rusty tub is no match for our prep skills!
Cast Iron Tub – Prime
Priming is step two. In order to smooth out whatever is not flush, this coat is added. Prepping the bathtub, shower, sink or countertop for the paint, it is also a layer of refinishing “health insurance.” A peeling bathtub primed for success, makes for a satisfied customer!
Tub – Paint
Paint serves two purposes in a cast iron tub repair and reglaze. One, it ensures a watertight seal. Two, it gives you a “prescription.” Personal choice of color, makes you the king or queen of your bathroom! A beautiful tub, sink, countertop, or shower adds that “face lift” that will keep you coming back for more of that relaxing bubble bath or decompressing shower. Tuff Tubs is your bathtub reglazing solution!
