What Molding (Transition) to Use and When?

Posted April 22, 2023

T- Mold- T-molds bridge the gap between 2 different flooring materials of equal height (thickness) or when you need to leave an expansion gap between rooms. T-molds can be used anywhere the same height material meet. Install a U track then just snap the molding into the track for a secure hold. 

Reducer- Reducers create a bridge between 2 materials of different heights (thicknesses). Reducers can be used anywhere different heights meet. Install a U track then just snap the molding into the track for a secure hold.

Quarter Round- Quarter Round covers the gaps between baseboards and flooring. Quarter Round can also be used without baseboards to give a finished edge where a wall and floor meet. Quarter Round can be toe nailed or glued down to remain in place.

Stair Nose- Stair Nose are used in combination with a plank of flooring to face a step or stair. Cut the Stair Nose molding and a flooring plank to fit the stair width. Our flooring material is designed to click together with our Stair Nose to make a strong, seamless stair finish.
Stair Nose can be used on a single stair, an entire flight of stairs, on step landings, and at the top of stairs to create a transition from the stairs to the flooring around it. Stair Nose should always be glued down for safety.
