Hi guys,

Wanted to seek some advice. I have a plywood floor that has over a apx 1 cm thick cement level. I need to align the floor, move up one side of it apx couple cm up.

Is there a way I can buy cement, make it almost a liquid mix and pour it on the floor to make it horizontal level? If this is possible any special cement mix you can suggest?

Self leveler. Could buy from any tile supply store.

By all means

Easy fix

You can get SELF LEVELLING cement.

Be sure the suface is clean and coat the plywood surface with a primer.

Even just your basic latex primer (as used on new drywall) will do.

Just gives a better adhesion to surface.

Once it is dry you can mix up the self levelling cement (thoroughly) and pour onto surface.

Be sur to check directions on bag or pail.

Different nrands may have different specs for temperature etc.

Have a float/trowel/ or even a pc of 2x2 2x4 to "jiggle" as you move cement around and fill you area.

This will help it settle level on it's own.

As long as the mix is not too dry.

Thank you. Do I need a primer if there is already a cement?
