Leveling Floor

Posted by splais ( on

I'm going to have to go in a different direction. first I was thinking about removing an old tile floor. that is just not in the cards anymore.

I have an open living area that is about 1200sf, 800sf of ceramic tile and 400sf of carpet, all layed on a slab. I want to remove carpet, put down something to bring floor up level with tile and lay a laminate floor over the whole thing. I'm looking for suggestions on just how to do that other than paying someone to come in and put down leveling concrete. Can I use plywood? any other suggestions? thanks.

So your talking about coming up perhaps 3/8"? Glue and shoot down 3/8" treated plywood.
