Is It Worth Restoring a Cast-Iron Bath?

Is it worth restoring a cast-iron bath?

How can the bathroom be renovated without starting a serious repair and make daily hygiene procedures more enjoyable? Buying a new bath seems like the most successful idea, but not everyone thinks of the difficulties involved in the replacement process. An old cast-iron bath can last for many more years and still be an interior decoration, if it is properly restored.

A new bath impresses with its whiteness and smoothness, and it is much more pleasant to use such a product than an old one that has long served its time. However, such a seemingly simple task of replacing one thing with another involves a lot of complexities and additional costs, which are not immediately considered by everyone.

Dismantling an old bath is difficult to do on your own. This requires tools and an understanding of how to properly remove the mixer, siphon and other elements. In addition, you will not be able to remove the bath yourself, because the cast-iron product has a considerable weight. Sometimes, during the dismantling process, you need to remove a number of tiles from the wall, which makes the repair process longer and more difficult. Most likely, you will not be able to do without replacing just the bath with a new one in order for the interior to look complete and attractive, you will need to buy a new faucet, a shower head with a mount and a siphon.

Taking into account all these nuances and additional expenses, buying a new bath no longer looks like such a simple and affordable solution. If residents want to avoid all this, the best solution is to resurface the cast-iron bath with liquid acrylic. The renovation is performed according to all the rules using high-quality material, which gives the old surface the appearance and properties of a new one, but at the same time it can avoid dismantling, unnecessary expenses and loss of time.

Resurfacing of a cast-iron bath with liquid acrylic will help to restore its appearance and make it pleasant for further use. Unlike other renovation materials, which provide a short-term cosmetic effect, liquid acrylic forms a new layer on the cast iron base. Its main characteristics are long service life, resistance to mechanical damage and aesthetics. In addition, due to the simplicity and speed of the process, as well as the low price of the material, the restoration of the bath with liquid acrylic is very affordable. In addition, the restoration allows you to save the cast-iron bath which is a high-quality, durable product with high performance characteristics.

The specialist performs all the work on the installed bath, without damaging the wall decoration and floor covering. Before applying the material to the surface, the old enamel which spoils the appearance of the bath, is cleaned off. During cleaning, cracks are smoothed, chips, gray deposits and rust spots are removed, detachments, if any, are removed. After this treatment, the bath becomes homogeneous and prepared for the application of the liquid acrylic. Due to the peculiarities of the material and the principles of working with it, the coating is flawlessly even and smooth, just like the surface of a new bath.

Main difference

For many people, the speed of repair or restoration is an important indicator. In contrast to the replacement of the bath, which will necessarily lead to additional work in the bathroom, resurfacing with liquid acrylic can be scheduled for the weekend, and after a day the repaired bath can be used.

Thus, restoration of a cast-iron bath with liquid acrylic is by all accounts better than buying a new one. With an ideal external result and durability of the coating, it allows you to save time and money on the repair of bathrooms.
