Frequently Asked Questions About Clawfoot Tubs

Are acrylic tubs better than cast iron?

Cast iron is great to look at and might even be an antique, it will last a very long time as it can be re-enamelled when it becomes scratched, chipped or shabby.
It does however have many drawbacks. It is very heavy so will be difficult to install especially into bathrooms in upper floors. Bathroom floors on upper levels may need to be shored up to accept the extra weight. Making any remodel more expensive.
