To Recast or to Replace

By Sarah Boudreau

To recast? Or not to recast? That is the question we will be answering today. In short, most tubs deserve a second life.  Recasting your tub will renew the life of the original tub.  


Minor Cracked tub


Cracks can be filled with car bondo and sanded smooth.


Major Crack or Hole in Tub


This crack is and hole are too big. No sense falling through the floor. Sorry.  You need a new tub.


Discolored Rusty Tub


Sand smooth with 220-320 grit sandpaper then use our bonding primer for a better stick.


Tub Has a Major Flex


If you catch air by jumping on your tub, you should replace  refinish and recasting will not work long term with big flex.  Cracking and peeling is inevitable long term.


Rusted Bathtub


You'll want to sand the bathtub smooth with 220-320 grit sandpaper. Then use our wipe on the bathtub refinishing bonding primer for a better stick.


Severe Rust Or Corroded Bathtub



If your foot goes through the tub you should replace 


Peeling/Flaking Bathtub


Peel up what you can of the old finish. Sand the rest smooth with 400 grit sandpaper.


Loose or Falling Surround Tiles

Recast but…

Need to fix the surround first.  Clean out the tub and pour.


Chipped or Dented Bathtub



If necessary (larger than 1/8”), fill with car bondo. You can also use our wipe on the bathtub refinishing bonding primer for a better stick over the car bondo.


Small Holes


Small hole  can definitely be fixed. Fill with foam. After dried, sand down, hit with bondo,and pour.



Colored Bathtubs


Ugly tubs are no problem for Ekopel 2k.


As you can see most problems are solved by Recasting.  If you have a tub with questionable damage, give us a call and we would be happy to consult you.
