There are so many different sizes and shapes of toilet tank lids going back more than 100 years across dozens of brands that it is necessary to manufacture some of the lids we cannot find new or via salvage. These lids are custom designed with sophisticated 3D modeling software, produced using wood selected for its moisture resistance and ability to not warp, and manufactured here in North Carolina. Wood can be either coated with an enamel epoxy resin signed for reglazing bathtubs and color matched to each original porcelain manufacturers color specifications, or made of Sapele.
For coated lids, in most cases we already have the resin on the shelf in the color you need, but in some cases the color has to be ordered. The wood is primed to accept the finish and the finish is designed to last essentially forever. It hardens to a consistency similar to automotive paint and is chemical resistant so you can clean it with normal household cleaners.
Sapele is a wood similar to Mahogany with a straight tight grain and comes from Africa. We then apply several coats of satin spar urethane (for this option select Polyurethaned wood).
In addition to offering any tank lid we've identified in these reproduction listings, we can custom manufacture nearly toilet tank top. This means if you need a lid for a tank that we've never seen before, we can almost always still supply it. Simply take a piece of cardboard and place it on top of the tank, and as accurately as possible trace the outside of the tank. Mail us that tracing and we will be able to manufacture the lid for you.
The lead time for these lids is typically 1 week to allow time for manufacturing, sanding, filling, priming, glazing, and curing. However, if we have to order the color you need we will notify you and that will typically add one week to the lead time.
These tank covers are covered by our normal toilet tank lid warranty.
