Bath Renovation

Anyone had an old cast iron bath renovated? Is the cost worth it? Any experiences shared would be gratefully received.
Thanks Tony

Depends on the bath, I'd say. A customer of mine had her cast-iron bath done in-situ. The finish was OK but not perfect (slight dust marks) and as it was a common or garden 30s rectangular bath I don't think it was worth it; I'd have replaced it with a cheap pressed steel job or better. Now if you're talking about a rolled-top claw-feet bath then spending some money taking it out and having it re-enamelled by whatever method they use to do it properly is probably well worth it.

I'll tell you in a week or so when I've had mine done! The effort that's gone into cleaning the outside of the bath and re-painting it better be paid off bearing in mind that the blasted thing is in the garden at the moment and has yet to be moved into the bathroom - all 2 cwt of it.
