Topic: 
Bathrooms
Question: 

I am doing a very low budget remodel of my hideous bathroom. I can get an enameled steel bathtub for about $75 or a cast iron one for about $250. Both seem very sturdy. Please tell me pros and cons of each.

Answer: 

Steel tub don't last but are much lighter to install. Cast Iron tubs can last for decades and can even be refinished.
