Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths completed this bathtub replacement in Milwaukee, WI. Many Milwaukee homes were built in the 1840’s during WWII to the 19th century, 1940s and 1970s being very common. We find that many of these older homes have very outdated and old bathrooms. Many Milwaukee homeowners still the have the old cast iron bathtub- which was popular in the 1920s and 1980s. Cast iron bathtubs are no longer popular for the main reason that they are extremely heavy- weighing between 300 to 500lbs!
This old bathtub was deteriorating and showing signs of discoloration. No matter how much you scrub or clean, it looked dirty and dingy. Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths did this bathtub replacement in Milwaukee, WI in less than a day. We removed the old tub and replaced it with an acrylic tub and wall surround.
This old bathtub also had very old and outdated fixtures. A common issue with older bathrooms in Milwaukee, WI is the poor or lack of well functioning fixtures. This bathtub in Milwaukee had an old shower head and hot and cold valve. A common complaint we hear from Milwaukee homeowners with this bathtub situation is the poor water pressure. Low water pressure can be very annoying when you are trying to take a shower or decompress from the day. No one likes low water pressure when it comes to their bathtub! This bathtub was very old and it was time to get it replaced.
This old bathroom was in desperate need of an upgrade. The shelves in this bathtub were plastic and drooping. The bathtub, fixtures, shower caddy and wall surround needed a facelift. Our team at TightSeal also wanted to remove the old, awkward window and replace it with a window with frosted glass. The old window was very out of place inside the shower, but with older Milwaukee homes, we commonly see things like this. Most people do not want a window with blinds inside their wet area or bathtub.
The new bathtub is beautiful and works better. There are no more awkward blinds in the wet area, instead we’ve replaced it with a frosted glass window. The shelving looks much better and is no longer drooping. The handheld shower head has great water pressure and its accessible long shower hose will make it easier to shower. The acrylic tub is chip, fade and scratch resistant and anti-microbial. These Milwaukee homeowners will no longer have to worry about the yellowing or discoloration that was affecting their old bathtub.
