Unless two adjoining floors abut seamlessly, a transition piece of molding makes the changeover pleasing and possibly safe from tripping, too. Even if the two floors meet perfectly, a trim piece of molding will keep the edges from lifting and becoming unsightly and unsafe. Some examples of floor to floor and floor to stair moldings include
- Micro-threshold molding –used where hard surface flooring meets carpet
- Multi-purpose reducer–used where hard surface flooring meets another flooring surface, hard-surface, resilient, carpet
- T-molding –used to finish the join between two hard surface floors
- Flush stair nose and Step nose –used on stairs, steps, and landings
When moldings are presented along with the flooring, rather than an afterthought, customers can visualize how well the new floor will integrate with the rest of the house. Pre-primed wood, vinyl, and rubber molding are the details that finish a room and boost customer satisfaction.
