Restoration or re-glazing for an antique tub?

bathroom tub drain

Courtney emails:

We have a bathroom renovation coming up and I found an antique clawfoot tub to use in the bathroom. It needs a little TLC - can anyone recommend someone who specializes in re-glazing and restoration? Bonus points if they have experience with antiques!

The first idea that came to mind when we say Courtney's question was that a call to Historic Albany parts warehouse might be a good place to start -- they might have some suggestions.

But if you have a specific service or contractor to suggest, even better. Got someone in mind? Please share!

Andrea Daley of Troy does great restoration work. Very responsive and will let you know what is worth the effort/money.

Joe, owner of http://www.jsrefinishing.com/ is fantastic. He has done two tubs for me and three for my brother, including turning blue subway tiled walls white. He is a perfectionist and has a great personality. Very reasonable prices.
