Uneven transition


We are at a transition in installing our laminate flooring and are unsure where to go from here. There is a brick tile floor in the next room that is laid unevenly, crossing the doorway at an angle. To put In the transition molding as the tile floor is would either leave a gap or would have a crooked transition piece.

Would evening the gap with mortar or with flooring leveler be a plausible solution?

Re: Uneven transition


I think you are looking for a T Moulding or reducer strip.

They come in many shapes and sizes.

Re: Uneven transition


If I understand correctly... isn't your store bought transition too narrow....?

I assume you have a floating floor and need a T transition... I think you need to pull out the table saw and cut a bigger custom transition.... either butting up to the brick or lapping both the brick and new flooring.

Re: Uneven transition


Prolly figured it out already since the post is couple weeks old now.. But yes or cut the brick.. angle grinder makes lots of dust but will do the job..

Why is that piece of flooring so far from the brick?
