Question Cupped Shower Threshold

We are having frameless shower doors installed. When the old ones were removed, we found mold along the length of the marble (or granite) shower threshold. The mold was growing under the frame.

Then we noticed that the threshold was cupped so that instead of letting water run off into the shower, it puddled in the middle along most of the threshold length. It dips maybe 1/4 inch.

I am thinking of cleaning the threshold and then leveling it with epoxy before the new shower enclosure is installed.

Does this sound like a reasonable repair? (Or does the threshold need to slightly tilt towards the shower so the water slides off? )

Thanks!

Won't your epoxy be visible?

I would tint it.

Don't even know who to call to do this work for me, or if it's not worth it and should just replace the piece. People I've asked have no clue.

I would replace the threshold with one that is beveled on both sides so that it is crowned in the middle. Any countertop company that works with granite... or any tile layer could do this for you.
