I have a ceramic shower... it will not seal and i am again preparing to replace the floor underneath it!! does anyone have any ideas about placing a shower kit over ceramic tile? I will be attempting to do this myself since i am thouroughly disgusted with contractors in my area.

From most of the tile I have seen it would not be a good idea. First glue of any kind adherses to a clean dry surface. Secondly many times the wall behind the tile is in bad shape. So I would advise going to the extra work of removing the tile then remove the drywall and put up cement board. It is like drywall but is made of cement. It is not affected by water like drywall and will hold up well in a shower.

Good Luck
