View Full Version : Cultured marble tub

01-09-2006, 01:51 PM
ok guys, gotta good deal on a large cultured marble tub + surround from local manufacter. My first pick was a large cast iron tub but no way for me to easily move it in the house. Cultured marble man is going to install the tub and surround for me. The material looks very strong and durable.

My question is, any experiances (good/bad) with the stuff for tubs?

they are ok......

not as durable as the cast iron but youwill
probalby get about 25 years out of one....

some of them seem to crack and flake around the
tub shoe drain after 10+ years.....

but all and all they work pretty well/

basically no differnece between them and a normal marlbe
vanity top, some you have seen loook great and some not
after a period of time
