Hi, I'm laying laminate in the hall, I've undercut around the architraves and just about to start laying the floor. However, I've noticed a problem!
Under the wooden front door there is a concrete block that covers the full length of the threshold/door, it extends into the hall by about half a foot, and then the floorboards start butted up to it. Under the door/on the conrete theres the metal threshold, which is fixed in place with 2 screws either side into the door frame seeing as the threshold cant be screwed down into the concrete.
Now, my dilemma!
Should I cut the laminate up to the metal threshold and glue a small type of beading/scotia onto the threshold to keep the laminate down and in place
Take off the door, remove the threshold, lay the laminate, put the threshold back on top of the laminate, plane quarter inch off of the door then put the door back on?
I thought the latter would be the best way until I realised if upping the threshold by a cm then theres going to be a tiny gap on the outside of the door that rain and wind can get in. Is it safe to fill this in with some kind of filler, or will the damp pose a threat to the laminate being so close to outside?
