“I really thought I would have to replace my ancient cast iron bath as the surface was so rough after years of over-zealous scrubbing, but it now has a beautiful smooth and shiny finish and is a joy to lie in again!”

Our bath time was pretty uncomfortable until Billy the Bath Buffer arrived and made two old baths look and feel ( most importantly) like new! Barely took a morning and didn't make any mess... Brilliant!!

Bill Jackson "Billy the Buffer" re-polished two badly stained cast iron baths and did a wonderful job. He is an incredibly nice person and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend his work.

I have just had two baths restored to their former glory by Billy the Bath Buffer. Am thrilled with the results and after two hours of gruelling work a smiling and hot Billy emerged! Both baths look good as new at a fraction of the cost. I couldn’t be more pleased and urge anyone with stained or damaged baths you give Billy a ring immediately!

Bill Jackson of "Billy the Bath Buffer" came yesterday and absolutely transformed my lovely but old and stained cast iron bath. He couldn't have been nicer, more efficient, on time and generally did an excellent job. My bath now looks and feels white and silky smooth. I heartily recommend his work.

If you have a cast iron bath, a specialist procedure called re-polishing can be done on site to restore the enamel to its original colour and bring back its shine. Re-polishing is normally considered if the enamel is still intact but is rough, stained or has lime scale.
Damage to cast iron baths is normally caused by using abrasive cleaning products which can remove the enamel's shine and cause the enamel to become streaked, rough and porous. The enamel will eventually attract dirt, look grey and become very difficult to keep clean.
Having leaky taps or a leaky shower head will cause water to sit on the enamel which will form a lime scale deposit and eventually corrode the surface. These unsightly marks can be removed and correct care instructions will be provided.
We can also restore small chips as well as polish plastic baths back to there former glory.
Say goodbye to unsightly baths and sore bottoms.

Why not re-enamel?
You can not re-enamel a cast iron bath in situ as such, when people refer to re-enameling they are actually referring to a process called resurfacing, which in layman terms is simply spray painting the bath with acrylic based paint.
We only recommend this process if the bath can not be polished or removed.
Why not paint the bath?
Paint tends to crack, scratches and peals off.
We come across painted baths from time to time and in most cases they didn't need painting and we can simply remove the paint and polish the bath back to its former glory.
If however your bath does need resurfacing we can re-enamel your bath with Vitreous Enamel to learn more visit The Vintage Bath Company Ltd
Below are the answers to normal questions.
How much does it cost?
A typical bath takes up to 2 hours to polish and we charge a flat rate of £275.00.
How long will it last?
As long as you adhere to our simple cleaning instructions your bath should last a life time.
What if our bath has been painted?
We can remove the paint which takes about an hour and we charge £150 to do this. If the bath is not in good enough a condition to polish we will make the bath usable until we can get it re-enamelled.
Do you offer discounts for multiple baths?
Of course subject to each baths condition. Normally we deduct £50 for each additional bath.
Do you cover the whole country?
Yes we can travel but if you are more than an hour from our base we do ask for a small contribution to our travel costs. We also try and book in other jobs in your area to make this more cost affective.
What if my bath can't be fixed?
We normally ask you to email us a photo of your bath before we come out but in the unlikely event that we can't improve your bath we ask for a small contribution for our time and possibly a cup of tea..
Can I use the bath straight away?
Yes in most cases your bath can be enjoyed immediately, however if we have to do a large repair to a chip or wear around the plug we ask that you leave it for at least 4 hours.
Can you do a demonstration?
Absolutely, we can polish a small test area on the understanding that if you are happy with the results that we can complete the bath there and then..
If you have any other questions please get in touch.
