tub shower surround/old tub underneath?

11 years ago

Some day we'd like to get rid of the tub/shower surround in our bathroom. I'm sure it's officially outlived it's lifespan (at least 20 yrs, maybe more, from 2 owners back). House is from 1918 and would love to have nice cast iron tub (not clawfoot though). Recently my neighbor said they enclosed their tub w/whatever that acrylic/fiberglass, whatever synthetic surface. So, that got me wondering, is it likely that there is an original, or least an older cast iron tub underneath the synthetic tub shower surround? How do you know without cutting through the material?
