Re: Tucking Carpet Against Adjoining Tile Floor
The easiest and probably most common method is with a metal transition strip that is nailed into place. I personally don't care for that look and would rather "tuck" the carpet at the transition point. A tuck is done by installing a Z-bar flashing along the carpet edge. The carpet is stretched, then tucked under the flashing that is then tapped down with a hammer to bind the edge down along the tile, resulting in a "seamless" transition.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
