Reglaze or reline an old porcelan Bathtub.... which is better?
Just got a forclosed home here in West Bloomfield, Michigan
(about 15 miles north of Detroit). Overall good shape with not much altering to bring it back.
I have an old green cast iron bathtub (about 40 years old). It is in worn out, but good condition, no chips, no rust and still has some sheen on it. The tile around and above the tub is in new condition. I don't want to rip the heavy tub out and replace it as this would destroy the tile.
What about reglazing it? I'm sure that this should be done by professionals (those who have been doing it for awhile). Will this last long? What is the ball park price for this service?
What about relining as an alternative. Again what is price for this alternative?
What are some websites to go to for info?
