Transition two hardwood floors

Posted by Michelle Rawlinson, on
Hello I have two different hardwood floors one is laminate the other is I'm assuming like the hardwood blocks the just fit together. So my question is is there a way to transition from one floor to the other without having to have an above space or can it just be a smooth transition? If possible how do you make that transition as one floor is about an eighth of an inch shorter than the other? Thank you Michelle

Hi Michelle , This is a common problem when you have two floors meeting that are at different heights , there are some transition strips out there that go from one floor to another , but generally its from either tile or wood to carpet and the rebates don't always match the transition, what we generally do is obtain a piece of wood that resembles both floors and we custom make the transition strip the fit both floor profiles , its a bit of a pain but worth it in the long run Hope this helps Regards Craig
