Bathroom Remodeling – San Jose – Cast Iron Tubs
The lead article (the table of contents if you will) is titled Bathroom Remodeling.
Cast iron, cast iron, how do I seriously dislike you? Let me count the ways.
For starters, you weight at least 300 pounds!
Having said that, if you have a cast iron tub and are doing a partial bathroom remodel, you can have it refinished for less than the cost of removing and replacing it. Of course this assumes your plumbing and subfloor are sound and do not need to be replaced.
If you must remove a cast iron tub, the only good news is cast iron is brittle, and it is possible to break one when a very big guys hits it with a very big sledge hammer.
If you go that way, make sure to cover the tub completely with moving blankets to trap any shards of cast iron that come off in the process.
Strike your first blow in the middle of the wall of the tub, and make it count!!!
Breaking it into four pieces should do!
IMPORTANT: As soon as the drain is exposed, disconnect it or you’ll wind up breaking it, which could happen anyway.
If you believe you absolutely love cast iron and want a cast iron tub put back, I STRONGLY suggest you consider stainless steel.
Stainless steel tubs have all the benefits of cast iron, with very little of the weight.
It takes at least four guys to set a cast iron tub, whereas a stainless steel tub can easily be set by two guys, and some really skilled guys can do it alone (I do not recommend this).
So please…………………. do us contractors a favor and nix the cast iron tub.
