How Much Does It Cost To Refinish A Clawfoot Tub?
Here you’ll find our pricing for clawfoot tubs below. Clawfoot tubs have several issues that a regular tub doesn’t have. Watch the video to see your many options.
What you need to know about clawfoot tub refinishing cost, but were to afraid to ask.
95% of the Clawfoot tubs we see have serious erosion problems and pin holes in the tub bottom along with a lot of scarring, chips in the tubs rail. If not addressed the new coating will magnify these problems not hide them.
The other problem is on the outside. With these tubs having multiple coats of house paint applied from back when lead paint was used. So sanding the outside surface is a no no.
Paint stripper can be used but serious floor protection must be used so the paint stripper does not harm the floor. Also when the tub is in place up against a wall makes it impossible to get around the tub especially with the plumbing in place.
Next problem is the outside has a very rough casting to it and unless the casting is smoothed up I recommend a low gloss coating so it won’t be quite so noticeable.
While we can do a clawfoot tub in place, you would do well to understand it may require some extra repair time to do properly.
We prefer to have these brought into our shop, especially when you want the inside and outside done. Many of our clients have us chemically strip or have the leaded paint sandblasted off the outside. And smooth out the rough casting texture.
I’ll go over different pricing and labor charges to give you an idea of what it cost to have this done right. Whether you’re looking to just freshen up the old tub or looking for a show piece for your renovated bathroom.

Having the tub refinished with the drain out creates a really clean look around the drain vs. taping off. Plus by sealing the coating under the drain, seriously extends the service life of the refinishing. Read the Full Post Here On The Benefits Of Drain Replacement…
* Bathtub drain replacement requires access to the bathtub plumbing and a return trip for installation the next day.
Access panel installation may be available when needed for an additional charge.
Glue on solutions available as well... See the Drain Post for more info.
Chemical Stripping is required if your suffering from the results of a “Peeling Tub” the culprit is generally the results of hiring a cheap refinisher as the saying goes “You Get What You Pay For…”
If not removed before re-coating, your throwing your money away... Many refinishers will not strip even if they say they do! But only sand the affected area. Or only strip the inside of the tub bowl... Either is considered a RIP OFF!
*Here is more information on stripping a refinished tub… Read the full post here…
Bathtubs holding water can cause some serious damage and must be filled to level to correct the problem before "Refinishing" or the same problem will re-occur.
Time & material to repair correctly depends on the extent of the job.
Bathtub "Rust Outs" as we call them, whether around the tub drain or overflow can easily be repaired by removing the rusted area and fiber-glassing a brass coated steel ring to the tub. Photo or estimate required.
The craftsmanship of our repair is seamless and looks absolutely fabulous, just like the original tub. Give us a crack at it, you won't be sorry...
Heavily eroded or chipped up tub surface requires addition time & material to repair base on hourly charge. We can provide time estimate via in-home estimate or even photos of the problem. Hourly rate for time and material $95.00.
Leaking faucets, drain acid applied incorrectly and chiseling shower door frames from tub rail can all cause these problems.
When Rust is present under the drain or overflow it's critical that the hardware is removed so the rust can be removed and treated...
Whoops! Got chips in your bathtub... no problem from black to white and all colors in between we can match your color on location and expertly repair the problem.
You'll have to ask where the chip was when we're done. Pricing covers 1 to 3 chips in one bathtub... Add $25. for each additional chip after 3.
Estimate required to access the extent of damage.
This happens when removing a shower door track using hammer and chisel. Next time heat the track up with a propane torch to soften the adhesive. Then using a putty knife or 5 in 1 tool and rubber mallet gently work the track off. Caution don't apply heat near an arcylic or fiberglass tub or surround.
Custom colors are available. Our standard colors are white, bone, almond, black and slight tinting to match to your other fixtures is included. Just let us know what your requirements are.
But... if you've got something special in mind no problem whether you've got a purple, tangerine, or most any color in mind... We can hook you up!
We do like to remind folks though not everyone might share your taste in color and if your looking to sell in the future it's best to keep neutral colors on the fixtures...
Both of our non-slips do not contain any aggressive "GRIT" that other refinisher's use.
Majority of home accidents happen in the bathroom while getting in or out of the tub. Protect your family while protecting your refinished tub from suction cup bath mats that will damage a refinished tub if left down for long periods.
TubPotion's # 7 perfectly round micro-spheres or TubPotion # 9 is an "Exclusive" textured surface applied to the Tub or Shower Pan Before Refinishing and is incorporated into the process. It took one full year in R&D to bring this special product to the market. Both are super easy to maintain and clean.
May also be installed as a Stand Alone service when you want the protection or need to cover an stained tub bottom, when the rest of the tub is in great shape...
