Help fill this gap?


Any ideas on filling this gap at my back exterior French door?

About 3/4-1 inch.

What is the floor, is it floating, nailed or glued down?

I wish this site would orient the pictures correctly, I don't know which way is up.( no sarchasm please), so going from an earlier post, temporarily use one of those door draft ducks.

The kind that you lay at the bottom of the door, looks like a skinny tube filled with padding and a cute duck head for decoration.

It looks like the floor has been left with an expansion gap at the door.

I think you might have to cut the floor back a little and then play with a transition strip that can be nailed or glued down and still allow for expansion.
