Q:water stain on laminate flooring?
It depends. Most laminates have about 1/8 to 1/4 inches of real wood surface. They are sandable 2 to 3 times before going through that surface. With a very fine grit sandpaper, sand the entire plank of laminate flooring (not just the spot). Use a couple of layers of masking tape to mask off the adjacent planks so you don't sand them. This way, when you re-stain the floor, if the color is not exactly a match, it will look like an intentional variation in the flooring instead of a fix. Test a section in an inconspicuous place, or on an extra piece from when you installed the floor. If possible, go to wherever you bought the laminate and buy 1 section to test the stain for color match. Happy sanding!

Q:Radiant in-floor heating?
so the radiant heat is in the concrete slab correct? if yes then i would take up the wood flooring, alot of work but will be worth it. I would think you would have a big heat lost leaving the wood floor on, plus how thick the floor would be after putting tile on top of it. To get the glue off try heating it with a large torch if you have access to one or if you know a plumber. I did this taking up a linoleum floor and it came right up easily. heat the glue just until it gets soft then with a scraper or wide putty knife it should come up. are you doing the tile floor yourself? unless are good at it don't you will want to make sure the floor is prep the right way or you will have problems later. plus if you have a tile guy do it you will have a warranty with the job------------good luck with it
Q:why would anyone choose a middle floor apartment over the top or bottom?
Well a three-floor building usually won't have an elevator, and a lot of people don't like the idea of walking up three flights of stairs, especially for things like moving furniture in and out and bringing up groceries. Apartments on the highest floor of any building also tend to be more exposed to temperature extremes, that is, they're hotter in summer and colder in winter. The advantage is that there's no one walking around above you so you don't have to worry about a lot of noise. First floor apartments are a greater security risk, especially when they're on the ground floor. There can also be less privacy if you have windows that are at street level. A lot of times you'll see that only the windows on the first floor of a building have bars, while the higher floors don't because they're less likely to be useful up there. Ground floor apartments are also more vulnerable to flooding. On the other hand, there may be no stairs to get to your apartment, and also you could install hardwood floors because there would be no neighbors downstairs to complain about your stomping. Second floor apartments offer the best of both worlds. You're more secure because it's not as easy to get to your apartment from the street, and there's more privacy for that reason. You're also not as affected by temperature extremes. The only real downside is that you could potentially be sandwiched between two noisy neighbors, below and above.
Q:how to deaden sound between floors in a home?
If you could insulate the floorboards from the joists, that would cut a lot of noise. But since the floor is probably already in place, the best you can do is to put padding and carpet above, and insulation (fiberglass batt or other) above the downstairs apt. wallboard ceiling. You can also attach acoustic ceiling tile to the apt. ceiling. If any walls also are shared between upstairs and downstairs, you'll want to insulate those, too.
