Clawfoot Bathtubs & Vintage Sinks

Whether restoring a Victorian home or adding a beautiful touch of the past into a new home, many people love these vintage tubs.

Deeper than a standard tub, and made of cast iron and porcelain, the bath water holds the heat for much longer making them great for soaking in and adds alot of charm.

DuraFinish Inc. is a full service refinishing company serving both residential and commercial business.
Family owned and operated since 1993.
Reglazing Bathtubs, Showers, Sinks, and other fixtures is our specialty.
While we can reglaze the inside surface of your clawfoot bathtub in the home, most prefer the complete restoration process, that we are able to do in our shop in Grandville, MI
YES! We refinish Sinks!
For best results, we refinish most sinks in our shop. This allows for sandblasting when needed, as well as, fiberglass repairs as needed and double coating for added durability.
NOTE: We do not warranty Kitchen Sinks due to the abusive nature of their use. (though the double coating of them goes a long way toward added protection.) Bath Sinks are a One Year warranty.
The Restoration Process
Many tubs come to us with many layers of peeling paint and rust from years of sitting outside in the envoronment. Sometimes serving as horse troughs or garden planters.

Step 1. The first step in the restoration process is to have the feet and outside of the tub sand blasted. This removes rust or lead based paint that may have been applied over the years.

Step 2. Once the tub has been sand blasted to clean metal, we immediately spray a coating of rust inhibitive epoxy primer.

Sometimes tubs come to us having once been painted with a DIY kit. If so, we remove this with chemical strippers.

Step 3. The porcelain is next etched using hydroflouric acid. This deep cleans and chemically sands the porcelain to accept the finish.

Step 4. At this point any chips, nicks, or worn areas are filled using fiberglass and acrylic fillers.

Step 5. The tub interior is then primed using a clear adhesive primer, then primed again using a white epoxy primer, followed by a final inspection.

Step 6. Finally the finish coats of acrylic urethane are applied, producing a smooth, hard finish that will last for many years.

Whether you have a tub or sink that you would like to have restored or if you are shopping for one that's ready to install, contact us today.
