What MateriaWhat Material Is Best For A Bathtub Murfreesboro TN	l Is Best For A Bathtub?

Bathtubs have changed quite a bit over the years. From the galvanized steel washtubs of long ago to the iconic claw-foot bathtubs of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, bathtubs have evolved in terms of size,  shape, style, and most importantly, material. Most bathtubs nowadays are made from thermoformed acrylic or fiberglass-reinforced polyester. These synthetic materials have emerged as the preferred constituents of modern bathtub construction for a number of reasons.

First of all, they offer the strength and durability of cast iron or steel without the tremendous weight or the risk of rusting over time. While some bathtubs these days are still crafted from porcelain-enameled steel or cast iron, these are more often the exception than the rule and are usually chosen for their historical accuracy rather than their high-performing qualities.

Secondly, unlike natural materials like wood and metal, synthetic acrylic and fiberglass materials are generally nonporous, which helps them to resist bacterial growth. This keeps bathtubs free from mold and mildew and makes them overall much easier to clean.

Another reason why nonporous acrylic and fiberglass materials are considered ideal for the construction of modern bathtubs is their versatility. These materials can be manufactured rather easily and inexpensively compared to other, natural materials. They also can be crafted in virtually any color imaginable, and in a number of shapes, sizes, and configurations, making them highly customizable for consumers who have a specific vision for their bathrooms.
