Laminate to Carpet Transition


I tried to put down a transition piece down but as you can see the tile that was laid down is uneven. This does not allow me to use a t-mold because the middle piece that touches the subfloor does not touch the floor.

Any ideas?

I have tried a jig saw and a small hand saw to cut off the middle piece off but its difficult to hold.

Laminate to Carpet Transition


Should this have been titled "laminate to tile transition"? Or does carpet factor in somewhere?

At the point you're at, all I can think of is to buy the threshold that matches the laminate, cut off the bottom to result in a flat threshold and bridge the two. You'll need several thresholds depending on the length of the transition.

Laminate to Carpet Transition


Yes, it should have been titled laminate to tile transition. Carpet was fresh on my mind as I was reading another thread about carpet right before posting this.

As mentioned before, I tried cutting it off but I found it difficult to hold the threshold while cutting. Actually, two thresholds broke in half while I was attempting to cut the bottom. Any ideas of how to prevent break?

If you have an angle grinder you can cut the tile even with a diamond blade. When you say the "bottom" of the threshold are you talking about the tee that snaps into the metal/plastic piece that you screw to the floor? If this is what your talking about i would try using a sharp chisel.
