PORCELAIN

The base for a porcelain tub or sink is either steel or cast iron, and is specially designed for "enameling" (baking a porcelain finish on top of the metal) during the manufacturing process.

We call these types of tubs and sinks "porcelain," and they are the most common type found in homes built before the 70s, and in most secondary bathrooms even today.

TILE

Most homes have at least one bathroom with a bathtub that has surrounding tile walls on three sides of the tub.  In older homes, particularly those built before the 70s, the wall tile could be the old vintage look of pink, green, yellow, or even blue tile.  If you don't want to keep those colors, there's no need to tear out the tile.  We can refinish the existing tile in some variation of white for a more updated look 🙂

ACRYLIC

Acrylics have a smooth finish, offer good heat retention, and are non-porous.  The down side to acrylics is that the finish is soft and can scratch easily.

Over time, it's common for the bottoms of acrylic tubs to develop stress cracks, because acrylics are not reinforced well and can feel flimsy.

CULTURED MARBLE

Cultured Marble has a  "swirly," "speckled," or "veiny" look to its high-gloss finish, but some finishes can look like a solid color (tone-on-tone).  Cultured marble is a man-made material that offers durability and resistance to stains, chipping, and abrasion.  Cultured marble bathtubs are always oversized, and round, oval, or square in shape.

FIBERGLASS

Fiberglass is lightweight and inexpensive, but it also has a low shine, is prone to stress cracks, and typically does not have a smooth surface.

Fiberglass material is porous, and has a tendency to absorb water. The surface is brittle, which makes it prone to stress cracks.  It's designed to flex, which can sometimes cause the surface to crack.
