Is It Cheaper To Repair A Clawfoot Tub Or Buy A New One?

Repair it!

In today’s “Ask the Contractor” question, we asked our trusted resource what he thought was the better option when looking to make an old porcelain tub look new again: repair or go out and buy a new one? He didn’t hesitate on his reply. Repair, repair, repair. If you have a tub to begin with, you’re only going to spend between 250-350 to have someone come out an repair it for you. (And way cheaper if you do it yourself!) A quick Google search showed new clawfoot tubs ranging in price anywhere from $900 to $1500–so we agree! Repairing your existing tub is definitely the way to go!
