Question

tile to laminate transition


I have a 10' 1" cased opening with a ceramic to laminate transition. I have a wooden T-moulding for a seamless transition because all of the laminate alternative came in only 8' sections. Anyhow, do I need a to use a C-channel to put the strip down? What about Liquid Nail with finishing nails or nail with an air nailer? If I need the C-channel, who would carry it?

So you are asking about how to install the T moulding transition strip?

I don't think (not sure) you can buy just the channel alone. I usually just brad nail them. A bead of caulk under the tile side will help keep it from moving around.

The laminate-related T-Moldings come with their own C-channel. Apparently you have purchased a separate T-molding because of the limited length the others are available in. In this the case?

Yes, I purchased a wood T-moulding in maple so that I didn't have to have a seam. The seams on the laminate strip were chipping from wear.

I called the local radio guru and he suggested finishing screws and putty over the holes. The sawmill / lumber supplier didn't have any C-channel for that, but they agreed that the finishing screws would work fine. It gave me a tight seal on both sides (tile and laminate) and the real wood matches the laminate pretty closely.

Thanks to all who replied!
