People often throw out old tubs because of a blemish, rust stains, or an outdated color. A lot of these old bathtubs are irreplaceable classics that have no equal today. Those beautiful period tubs can be saved with a cost-effective refinishing job by Bay State Refinishing & Remodeling.
Aside from the cost of the tub, there are significant labor costs to tub replacement including demolition and removal, replumbing, retiling and replacement of the tub surround. Especially for classic period tubs the replacement cost can be quite high.
A professionally refinished classic tub will often be of higher quality than anything you could purchase today for the same price. New tubs are often not made with the same quality material or craftsmanship as older tubs. However, if the tub started out as low quality, refinishing it would be a poor choice. You should consult with the refinishing professionals at Bay State Refinishing & Remodeling for an expert assessment. Bay State is experienced with the entire range of refinishing, replacement and remodeling choices, and we help homeowners make these decisions every day.
Bay State uses a standard color palette for most fixture refinishing jobs, but we do use custom colors on request. See this classic bathroom sink refinished in a dazzling vivid red. While this color may not be for you, it does illustrate the design possibilities and the wide color choices available.
Some of these older bathroom and kitchen fixtures are classic period pieces which fit beautifully into the overall design of their house or apartment and cannot be replaced today at a reasonable cost. Others simply cannot be replicated – the molds and manufacturing lines no longer exist. A great example of this is classic kitchen appliances like stovetops and kitchen ranges. If that authentic period look is important to you, we can refinish the porcelain surface of that classic stove and return it to like new glory.
Sometimes it makes economic and aesthetic sense to refinish old fixtures. It also makes makes environmental sense to reuse good quality older fixtures and appliances. It saves the environment: landfills are less cluttered and fewer new materials are consumed.
