Installing Marble Threshold


I'm installing a 4" marble threshold to transition from tile to carpet. I'm trying to decide whether to try and shape the marble to the doorway or just undercut the doorjam to fit the threshold. Any thoughts?

Installing Marble Threshold


Id have to see it to asess where the two types of flooring actually meet, but normally I would say, for a 4" marble threshold, definetly use a jamb saw and slip the threshold under...

Just my preference...

Hope that helps.
