Proper Dealing with Flooring Transition Strips Concern

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
If you have different floor materials in adjacent rooms, you may want to consider installing flooring transition strips to cover the small gap channel that is created in the area between the different flooring materials. Not only does this gap look unsightly, but it can also cause a safety hazard as the gap can potentially trip a passerby. Usually made of a sturdy material that will match your various floorings, these convenient strips will plug up the transition crack and provide a beveled edge that seamlessly connects both floor materials. Follow along with these instructions for an easy installation process.\

Measure the Amount of Transition Strip You Will Need

With a tape measure, measure the amount of transition strip necessary. When you do end up purchasing it, you will probably want to buy a little extra to compensate for mistakes or breaks. Many home improvement stores will let you do all of the cutting at the store, so make sure your measurements are precise.

Determine What Type of Application Method You Will Use

Different transition strips require different methods of application. If you are using a strong adhesive, such as liquid nails, carefully apply a bead of the product onto the bottom of the transition strip itself. Some transition strips come with an installation track, where the strip is subsequently snapped into. If you are using this method, you will need to screw both ends of the installation track to the floor.

Apply the Transition Strip

If you have an installation track, simply snap the strip into place. If you are using an adhesive, lay the strip on the ground and use a heavy object to hold it into place until it is fully dry.

Once the transition stip is correctly installed, you will no longer have an unsightly gap between different floors, and you won't have to worry about anyone tripping.

Tile floor transitions are necessary because in almost every project your newly-installed tile floor will be higher than adjacent flooring.

The reason for this is simple. Whether we're talking ceramic, marble, granite, glass, or other materials, tile flooring requires a number of substrate layers for installation, and these layers are not analogous to the layers found in non-tile applications.

In addition, tile flooring requires a mortar bed, which is no standard thickness. A good, professional tiler might be able to maintain a nearly-uniform thickness, but it's difficult for DIY tilers to do so.

So, you need a tile floor transition. But what kinds of tile floor transitions function the best under foot traffic, while not appearing to be an aesthetic imposition?

Surface Tile Transitions You're probably familiar with surface tile transitions. Typically made of light-weight aluminum, these tile transition strips are silver- or brass-colored and can easily be cut to width with a hacksaw.

Be sure to get the right type of surface tile transition strip. They are not interchangeable.

Full Saddle Transition: This transition strip is for bridging between two similar levels. Half Saddle Transition: This transition is for going from a lower level to a higher level.
