After removing the bathroom tile floor and plywood underlayment, I replaced some damaged diagonal 1 X 6" boards from the subfloor with a section of 3/4" plywood. The problem is the 3/4" ply butts up slightly lower, 1/16" to 1/8", than the remaining 1 X 6" flooring. My question:

Is troweling thin set mortar or cement over the plywood the best way to level it to the diagonal 1 X 6" flooring? OR will the cement/thinset mortar weaken the plywood over time, requiring a different approach?

filling it in with floor patch or thinset is fine.


There are two ways to do any job.

The right way and the wrong way.

Do it right everytime.
