Question

Bamboo T-Moulding question/help


Hello,

I'm a noob home owner, eventhough we are in our 2nd year here I'm still slowly fixing the previous home owners "projects" .

The entire lower floor is carbonized bamboo (on concrete slab), he installed a 4' 6" x 6" marble tile area around the front door. butted up next to it is the bamboo floor. I'm looking for matching T-Moulding in lengths greater than 6' so I can size it accordingly.

I know I will need to clearance the floor a bit (which he did not do)
Where can I find lengths greater than 6' ?
I will have to miter the corner, how do you suggest I attach the corner? or should I leave it un-glued?

My goal is to make the transition from the tile to the floor safer (if you step on the floor a certain way it will lift slightly) & nicer than what the previous owner did.

Thanks

Rich

Bamboo T-Moulding question/help


Not a lot of help, a few suggestions though. I doubt you will find it at the big box stores in that length.
I live in a fair sized city, have many flooring stores I could check, I do not know if you have that option. The first hit on google for bamboo t moulding shows it in 94" lengths.
You may need to order it on line.

T-moulding will work great for your purpose, most common purpose is for door ways and entry ways, why you find it in the shorter lengths at stores.
They do not want to stock something that is not going to sell often, though they will probably offer to order it for you, or you could just order it yourself.

I duno, maybe my search was wrong from the start. All I could find listed were short sections, like you said long enough for a door way. In fact that's what I picked up from HD last weekend.

My hope was to find it locally, which for some reason I didnt see anything. Then I found this site, and with the items I have on hand thought I'd ask .

There are some flooring stores in the area, I'll check with them as well.

Thanks
