Ensure the proper transition when your hardwood flooring meets other floor coverings, such as vinyl, thin ceramic tile, or low-pile carpeting. The Flush Reducer should be used on hardwood floors that have been nailed or glued down.
This coordinating piece provides the proper transition for all the hardwood steps in your home. Buy the Flush Stairnose for hardwood that has been nailed or glued down.
Hardwood flooring must be installed with expansion space between the flooring and the wall because it naturally expands and contracts due to weather conditions. This molding not only adds a finishing touch, but conceals the expansion space. It may also be used under cabinets where wall base won't fit or at the base of a stairway to provide a subtle blend between the horizontal and vertical surfaces.
Typically used at exterior doorways, threshold moldings transition between flooring and the doorway threshold. It can also be used as a transition from wood floors to different flooring surfaces when the reducer won't do, such as on high-pile carpet or thick ceramic tile.
T-Molding is commonly used in doorways to join two wood floors in adjoining rooms. It's also recommended when making transitions from a wood floor to another floor that is approximately the same height. T-Molding is also used to provide expansion joints when a floor dimension exceeds a length of 40' or a width of 30'.
