Painted Clawfoot Tub FAQ's
For painting the exterior of a clawfoot tub, high-quality acrylic urethane enamel paint is commonly used. This type of paint is durable, provides a high-gloss finish, and is resistant to chipping and cracking. It's important to use a paint that can withstand the bathroom's moist environment. For the interior, specialized bathtub refinishing paint is required, which is typically a two-part epoxy or a polymer coating designed to adhere to porcelain and ceramic surfaces.
The best paint for a cast iron bathtub, especially for the exterior, is acrylic urethane enamel. This paint is known for its durability and glossy finish, which is ideal for the humid conditions of a bathroom. For the interior, a two-part epoxy or a polymer-based refinishing paint is recommended. These are specifically formulated for bathtubs, providing a durable, water-resistant finish that adheres well to the bathtub's surface.
Yes, clawfoot tubs can increase home value, particularly in homes where the bathroom's style aligns with the classic or vintage appeal of the tub. Clawfoot tubs are often seen as luxurious and stylish, and they can be a desirable feature for potential homebuyers. However, the actual impact on home value can vary depending on the overall condition of the bathroom, the style of the home, and the preferences of the local real estate market.
The cost to refinish a clawfoot bathtub can vary widely depending on several factors, including the tub's condition, the refinishing method used, and your geographic location. On average, the cost can range from $300 to $1,200. Professional refinishing services that involve thorough preparation, repair of any damages, and application of high-quality coatings are typically at the higher end of this range. Do-it-yourself refinishing kits are less expensive but may not offer the same durability or quality of finish as professional services.
Clawfoot tubs can be installed on most floors, but it's important to ensure that the floor is structurally sound and can support the weight of the tub, especially when filled with water and occupied. Cast iron clawfoot tubs are particularly heavy. Consulting a professional to assess the floor's strength is recommended before installation.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of custom painted tubs.
For cleaning, use non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths or sponges to avoid scratching the surface. Regular cleaning helps prevent soap scum and mineral deposit buildup. For cast iron tubs with porcelain enamel, avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the finish. If the exterior is painted, gentle cleaning is necessary to preserve the paint.
Yes, clawfoot tubs are generally comfortable for bathing. Their design often allows for a deep soak, and the high back and curved sides can provide good support. However, comfort can be subjective and varies depending on the tub's size and shape, as well as the bather's preferences.
Yes, you can add a shower to a clawfoot tub. This is typically done using a shower conversion kit, which includes a circular or rectangular shower rod, a faucet with a shower diverter, a riser pipe, and a showerhead. Some kits also come with a support brace to stabilize the shower rod. It's important to ensure that the plumbing and fixtures are compatible with the tub.
Clawfoot tubs can sometimes shift slightly if not properly secured. To prevent movement, make sure the feet are evenly positioned and the tub is level. Some people use small rubber pads or grips under the feet to increase friction between the tub and the floor. Additionally, ensuring that the plumbing connections are secure can also help stabilize the tub.
