We have always required the highest quality standards and strive to continue this tradition for you and your family. One of the most common questions that is asked is about reglazing safety. Every product we use either meets or exceeds the strictest industry standards. Our product manufacturer has developed a process that encapsulates the old finish of your bathtub. This encapsulation stops lead from seeping out of these finishes and makes your tub family-safe! High concentrations of lead are being released from the old and worn finishes of many tubs worldwide. Recent studies conducted have shown that as many as 70% of the bathtubs manufactured before 1984 and commonly used today are leaking lead into the bathwater. The Center for Disease Control, and other health professionals warn that repeated exposure to high concentrations of lead could be hazardous to the health of your family, particularly children.

On average, a freestanding bathtub weighs around 100lbs. However, a cast-iron bathtub can weigh up to 1,000lbs!
To give a generalized example of the capability of waste production:
With an average of 50 housing units in a [metro area] neighborhood and a ton being equivalent to 2000lbs; if each home in a neighborhood sent their old cast-iron tub to a landfill, that would equivalent to up to 25 tons of waste, not including debris generated during the process of removal!
