Clawfoot Tub Refinishing

Blackstone Tub Refinishers's logo    Cast iron clawfoot tub refinishing has become very popular again in recent years, both in the renovation and the new home industry. Cast iron claw tubs have been around  since the nineteenth century. They were manufactured on a mold and the cast iron was then spun on to the rotating mold at great speed. This process made for a very heavy tub and an uneven surface thickness with many flaws. As time went on and newer and lighter metals were used in the bathtub manufacturing industry for convenience and ease of installation. A great many clawfoot tubs ended up in landfills and eventually became a bit of a rarity. In recent years the demand for vintage clawfoot tubs has been steadily on the rise. Consequently the cost can be as much as $5000.00 new, for this type of bathtub.

This is where clawfoot tub refinishing becomes cost effective. Your investment  for a good quality vintage clawfoot tub to be restored is $300.00 to $500.00. Refinishing costs, including having the feet chrome, brass, nickel plated, or a painted finish is in the $1800.00 range if the interior of clawfoot tub has not been refinished at some point.

Price range can vary depending on the color chosen and condition of the tub. Colors can be chosen the same way you would paint the walls in your home. There are price variances that come into effect when choosing your colors. Keep in mind that deep base and neutral base colors are more expensive to make and that primary colors because of the cost of tints and time to color match will increase the clawfoot refinishing  cost.
