We just had a flooring installer from Lowe's to measure and discuss a solid hardwood installation. I am looking for a solid threshold to the center of the door jamb to transition from the wood to the tile in the kitchen and bathroom doorways. The installer is talking about "T" molding, which I think will look flimsy and cheap.
Is what I am asking for the wrong solution?
No, your request is perfectly reasonable.
The "T" molding solution often cracks with use, besides looking lousy. It's also a minor trip hazard.
It's been a number of years since I ran hardwood jobs, and as I recall, we often had something "off the shelf" that would either work as is, or could be used with minor reworking.
Heck, this is wood we're talking about, not titanium. If the flooring guy has any pride, maybe a friend or two who works wood, this request should be a piece of cake.
