I recently bought a home and finally refinished the oriinal oak floors. However now that the carpeting is gone the front door threshold is about 1 1/2 inches HIGHER then the floor itself. It doesn't sound like alot but its bad steping in and out of the door. Not to mention I use a cane thus my walking isn't great to start with. I'm still a DIY'er though but need help with this one.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
Modern doors have high thresholds to allow for carpeting. The door was probably installed over the flooring. The only way to get around that is to cut the flooring and set the door down on the underlayment. Not as simple as it sounds because you have to fix the inside and the outside trim.
