Hardwood floor repair for seamless transition

Post by Mthomas » Tue Oct 29, 2019 3:07 pm

Hi Shannon...I had some hardwood floors laid and the installer thought there was going to be a saddle btw the rooms. I caught him and told him to please have the boards go straight across. Unfortunately my subfloors were slightly uneven. So now thier is no transition and the boards are all at different levels. How can I fix this

I have about 15 pieces of the floor boards left. But they are all different sizes. Can I save a part of a floorboard or when repairing do u have to take out the whole board?

The easiest course of action will be to install a T-molding over the joint because it doesn't require the removal of boards.

The second easiest course of action would be to cut out the threshold area and install a threshold board. You can use the flooring itself for the threshold, it would look best as a single board.

The hardest course of action would be to pull up the flooring a few feet on either side and re-lay to break the seam joint in the doorway, the unfortunately thing here is that the boards on either side of the doorway are not aligned, which means this option isn't really an option.

Yes I agree with Spruces first two suggestions as well.
