Q:Should we refinish floors or paint floorboards first?
Okay, so if by floor boards you mean baseboards then I say refinish the floors first. You can do it in either order. But refinishing a floor is really messy and you are more than likely going to have to go back and re touch up your base boards... painting them once is hard enough. Just make sure after you do the floors and start painting that you keep a rag handy with mineral oil on it. You can buy glue remover for hardwood floors at any home improvement store (mineral oil) and wipe up any paint that gets on the floor. It wont hurt your floor I promise.

The best cleaner that we have found is Bona Laminate (or wood) cleaner. This is designed to clean the floor and keep it looking good.

If you want to keep the floor pitched toward the drain (which I think is a good idea), perhaps you should consider alternatives to hardwood laminate. - There is very nice looking vinyl flooring that emulates hard wood - Carpet is always a cheap and easy option, but if there is flooding you will have to replace the carpet. - I put garage floor epoxy in my gameroom. I bought a nice red color from Sams Club. - Decorative concrete overlay goes over an uneven floor well, and you can keep the slope toward the drain.

Q:Floating floor versus gluing down?
I thought a floating floor was a good way to do a basement and means the floor is slightly elevated off the slab. This way heating or cooling and electronic cabling , and wiring for outlets. (computers esp)can be run under the floor rather than through concrete walls. It is a platform system that can be covered with a number of materials. compartment doors allow access to cabling. If they are calling pergo type flooring floating flooring now...I do not see how having a basement with finished surfaces is a bad thing.
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!
