How Do Different Types Of Flooring Transition?

Some transition is necessary whenever two new floors meet and form a seam. And the type of transition needed depends on the flooring that’s connected.

We use different transitions to connect floors of different heights. Since each flooring upgrade is different, it’s worth your time to learn more about it.

Why transition between two floors?

There is a gap created when two floors meet in a remodel. A transition helps seal the hole to create a better-looking result, but that’s not all.

The transition also helps to hide the seam and keep debris from lodging there. Once in place, new floors and their transitions can last a long time.

Which transitions are best?

The transitions you will use depend on the floors you’re connecting. The exact height flooring, as in laminate to laminate, can use a simple seam cover.

But if two different floor heights connect, we’ll use a reducer to move from higher to lower floors. Some can even use a four-in-one bar that covers all the possible transitions.

Think about the transition before you buy the flooring

Some homeowners cover transitions at the same time they purchase flooring. Doing it ensures no concerns with our flooring company about finding them after your decisions are made.

If you prefer a specific type of transition, be sure to let us know. And some transitions are perfect for different connections, so be sure to ask for details.
