How many times can a tub be reglazed?
I have a cast iron tub that is original to my 1940 house. It has been reglazed at least once maybe 15 years or so ago. There are now chips in the finish and it looks perpetually dirty no matter how much we clean. We are planning a bathroom remodel and trying to decide what to do with the tub. It is in a standard tub alcove. We will be doing most of the work ourselves so not replacing the tub would certainly be easier. I would hire out the tub refinishing to make sure it gets done correctly, but I don't want to remodel the entire bath and just reglaze the tub if we are going to have the same chipping in the the tub just a few years down the road.
