Tubs and More specialize in restoration of antique bathtubs and
pedestal sinks. Own a piece of history and enjoy a longer
lasting bath in an original cast iron tub.
Why most choose and antique tub instead of a modern replica?
The antique tubs of the early 1900’s are made of cast iron and
coated with porcelain. The antique tub replicas are made of
acrylic and are not as solid as the original tubs.
When the tub is used for a bath instead of a shower, the bather
will enjoy an extended bath time in the cast iron tub compared to the bather in the acrylic
tub. The water temperature will be maintained for a much
longer period of time in cast iron versus acrylic.
What is the process?
First, we sandblast the tub to remove all rust. After the tub is sandblasted, we then etch the tub and repair all chips
and cracks in the porcelain finish. Once all repairs are
complete, we then spray our acrylic coating on the tub until proper strength and finish are
What is my choice of colors?
The standard choice of colors is almond or white. Many customers choose to have a solid color both inside and out or
multi-color whereby colors differ on the inside and outside. Many recent customers have requested granite colors on the outside
and a solid color on the inside with a complimenting color on the feet.
Any color combination can be achieved; additional charges may
apply for special colors.
