We are going to lay tile in the whole house and we want the floor to be
the all same level. Part of the house - the two bathrooms and the
entryway - have terrazzo poured over the slab foundadation. We need to
decide if it is easier to remove the terrazzo floor or to raise the
surrounding floor to the same height so we can tile over it and have a
nice level surface.
Thanks a lot.
To remove it would be an awful lot of work to say the least. What is
the difference in the various floor heights? If it's around 3/4" or
more you might consider a traditional mortar bed on the lower floors to
bring it even with the terrazzo floors. If you have a wooden subfloor
you may be able to use backerboard to make up the difference in height
insytead of the mortar bed.
