floor-sill detail tip from Cynthia

Now that I am about to install a new carpet in the living room and tiles in the family there appears to be a problem having the small wood strip glued to the new door sills. The company which will do the installation told me that they must be removed and that it may be difficult to remove the glue. I mentioned this in an email to, I think, Bob who said that some of these strips were glued, others nailed. It is not clear that they serve any function. You may wish to ask that these strips not be installed, if you are putting in new floors, or at least find out if they serve any purpose.

Harold’s comment: the purpose of the wood strip is, I believe, to conceal the shiny door pan flashing. If you are having your own remodel work done at the same time as the project, it is important to communicate possible interface issues to Bob, so that he can coordinate with the contractors. I’ve had to do this for my own interior work, and it has worked out so far. (I’ll see if I can get a photo to add soon. Here it is: a detail of the upper deck door threshold.)UpperDeckThresholdDetail
