We specialize in antique clawfoot tub restoration. Rather than getting rid of the tub, SoMI Refinishing will make it not only usable, but beautiful again. While most common color is white, almond and bone colors are also popular choices. Many of these tubs have exposed cast iron on the outside, so the first step is to remove all corrosion, rust, and old paint. Next, the surface will be filled and sanded until its smooth and finally, the surface is sealed and refinished.
Cast iron bath tubs are often part of bathroom designs in older homes and have more space for those who truly enjoy a good bubble bath.
With age comes wear, and many contractors often “fix” this wear with a coat of paint. SoMI Refinishing provides real restoration through our refinishing and repair services. Instead of taking out an old tub that is slightly flawed, we can breathe new life into it so you can use it again. We can recreate the same finish color and texture, or update the surface with any color or design you prefer.

Refinishing / Restoration vs. Replacement
With traditional replacement, the biggest problem encountered is removing the old bathtub. During this process, parts of the bathroom tile, walls and floor must be torn away. The location of the old plumbing is often in the wrong place to fit the new bathtub ~ more time and expense. Add together the cost of the new bathtub, the floor and wall materials, new ceramic tiles, lumber, a carpenter, a plumber and a tile setter, it's easy to see where the cost of replacing a tub can run into thousands of dollars ~ not to mention the dirt, noise, and hassle of having workmen traipse through your home for days or even weeks. Finally there is also the inconvenience of not being able to use your own bathroom for an extended period of time.
With the Refinishing/Restoration process, your worn out fixtures and tile can be restored to their original luster in less than a day. You are spared from the downtime and hassle of replacement.
