This molding is used at exterior doorways as a transition between flooring and the doorway threshold. It can also be used to transition a wood floor to different floor types to make them fit together perfectly, such as a high pile carpeting or tile. Another typical use for a threshold is to conceal the expansion space between the flooring and a vertical surface such as fireplaces, hearths and sliding glass doors.
- Installation: Lay threshold molding in place to determine a proper fit. The threshold molding should overlap the flooring by 1/2 in to 3/4 in leaving the balance for expansion. To attach the threshold, nail into the subfloor behind the lip of the molding. Be sure when nailing not to obstruct the floors expansion space.
