Steel baths and cast iron bathtubs are supremely durable. They are designed to withstand the test of time in both style and structure. The timeless elegance of these baths will complement all types of interior design.
Compared to an acrylic bath, the surface of a steel bath is slightly colder to the touch. However, the chemical-resistant enamel coating on the bath surface will prevent discolouration. A steel bath can easily last for decades if you ensure the enamel coating isn’t chipped during use.
The initial cost of a cast iron bathtub can seem exorbitant. However, it’s a wise investment, as it can last for 70 years. You can save money in the long run, as it won’t be necessary to replace your bathtub in your lifetime.
With periodic maintenance that involves wiping the enamel coating with a clean towel, the heat retention in both these tubs will remain good. Overall, these baths guarantee peace of mind as long-term purchases, ensuring that they remain functional for years to come.
