leveling a floor

We have an older split level home. We are looking to add more space in our lower level, which is not fully under ground - it's about half under and half above ground.

Both of the rooms have drains in them and the floors are painted. We want to level the floors, but I have a concern with pouring concrete with the floors being painted. I don't want to level out the floors only to have the concrete not bond to the painted floors

Any suggestions?

leveling a floor

Self leveling compounds include a primer that is applied to the surface so bonding occurs. Check the manufacturer you're using to see if the installation you have will work with their product.
