Laminate Transition Strip wont fit
I finally got around to installing 12mm laminate with a high grade underlay. I bought a laminate to carpet transition strip that was made for 12mm flooring. When I went to install it the transition strip didn't touch the subfloor as the underlay added 2-3 extra millimeters of height to the laminate. Even with alot of force I cannot get this stip to sit properly. Without the underlay everything fits perfectly.
Brief description of this transition strip. Basically an L shape where the floor fits under the lip on one side and the carpet butts against the opposite side. The whole assembly is then glued and/or nailed to the sub floor.
I dont know if im missing something obvious as I have never heard of anyone else having this problem.
Re: Laminate Transition Strip wont fit
I'd either a) go back to the flooring store where I bought the materials and see if they have various sizes of the L shaped transition strips or b) find a friend with a table saw and cut an L shaped transition strip out of something hard like oak and stain it to match your flooring. Shouldn't be too hard to do.
