plywood & cement


we have added on to our laundry room and built up the new part of the floor with plywood. It is not level with the existing concrete floor. We want to lay ceramic tile or possibly vinyl tile over the entire floor. How can we bring the concrete portion of the floor up to the same level as the new plywood floor? It's maybe a 1/2 inch; difference, if that much. Thanks.

This is an easy one get some Ardex self leveling concrete it mixes up to a watery consistency and pour it on until they are level follow the directions on the bag and you should have no problem.
