You use a cement board any where you need tile . You install it atop the standard 3/4 wood sub floor. And to install it properly you apply a thin set to the sub floor and then nail or screw it down. NEVER is construction adhesive used to properly install cement board. Using thin set creates a full coverage and won t cause gaps. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar and check my qualifications there. GL
Q:sea floor spreading and magnetic pole?
The Mid Oceanic Ridges are thin parts of Oceanic crust where under sea Basaltic Volcanoes erupt along fissures and push the oceanic crust outwards causing sea floor spreading. This lava is called Mid Oceanic Ridge Basalt (MORB) and happens along fissures in all ocean floors. The MORB is rich in magnetic crystals. These magnetic crystals align themselves along the North South magnitic polar axis and solidify into Basalt rock shortly after eruption freezing the magnetic crystals in place. An oriented piece of this rock can be used to know the direction of North and South Pole at its time of eruption. As the magnetic pole changes, the new MORB again records the new orientation. As this volcanism is a continuous process, a continuous sampling outward from Mid oceanic ridge gives a complete log of the magnetic variations called 'polar wanderings' This tells us that the location of magnetic poles at the time of eruption. This evidence suggests that magnetic north pole was earlier in the Hudson Bay and before that in Siberia. Another related fact here is that, as the sea floor spreads along the Mid Oceanic Ridges, it subducts (goes inside the mantle) along the ocean's edges in areas called 'trenches' and melts again. This happens along the contact of the Oneans and Continents. This whole process is called 'convection current'. In the Atlantic, this whole cycle takes about 225 Million Years. So we do not have any magnetic reversal records of earlier periods. And the oldest rock on the seafloor in 225 My old. Wheras we can find rocks upto over 3.2 Billion years old on the continents.
Q:recommendation of laminate flooring?
They just laid new vinyl flooring in my house and its was not laid correctly they did not put any filler on the floor so you see every bump there is on the floor. They came out and said with all the direct light that I have coming through my windows that it would not be wise to put down vinyl. So they suggested that I put down laminate on top of the vinyl they just laid is this okay/
I worked with a flooring company and the guy would put talcum powder between the cracks to stop them from squeaking, any fine powder works, but talcum powder is really fine apparently and gets in farthest.

Q:How to level my basement floor.?
There is a type of concrete called leveling concrete which flows well and is designed to do just this, level out uneven floors. But it requires some tools and skills, you would probably be better off to hire it done, because if it is done poorly, you've got a mess. Another consideration is is a product called dry-floor which is particle board squares with a waterproof dimpled plastic base designed to finish damp basement floors. This could be shimmed up using a level and give you a wonderful base for any floor including carpeting, laminate or tile.
Q:easy way to remove old laminate flooring??
Start by removing the wall moldings around all walls and the door. The first piece will be the hardest. Start in one corner and take up the board on the long side. One side will start easier than the other side. Try both sides until you find the easier side and then unsnap as you go. The easier side is often opposite the door. If necessary you can cut down the side with a saw, sometimes you need to. Just set the blade the thickness of the floor. Once you start it comes up easy.
Q:Installing new floor and removing old floors?
The pergo flooring(if free floating) is very easy to remove. Just start at a wall and start taking apart, they usually snap together. As for the tile, that will be a project. They make scrapers for floors, either manual or power. I would suggest using either. Your going to have to make sure that all material is off the floor, otherwise when you go to put down the hardwood, you will have a very hard time. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me.
