Tile over terrazzo shower base

I have a terrazzo shower base with ceramic tile walls. The terrazzo is 35 years old and has some pock marks that hold moisture and eventually grow mold. Hard to clean, so II would like to cover the base with tile, probably mosaic. Need advice. Thanks.

Welcome, Bob.

A photo or two of your shower receptor might help.

Not sure what advice you're looking for. Some of us might advise you save your energy and dinero and replace the entire shower instead. Some others might tell you to just tile away.

First problem you're likley to encounter is what to do at the drain. There may or may not be an extender available for your drain to raise the grate, but I think it unlikely in your application.

My opinion; worth price charged.
