Acrylic vs. Cast Iron tubs

9 years ago

Presently I have a cultured marble tub and it has simply not held up well in the 10 years we've had it. The finish is gone and water spots are always a problem if I don't thoroughly dry every inch. As we get ready to reno the bath, I am seeing more acrylic tubs in styles that appeal to me. How do they hold up and are they easy to maintain? I have had cast iron in the past and loved how it held the heat and never found it to be difficult to keep it looking nice.

So, cast iron vs. acrylic??? Pros and cons please. Thanks
