Question - do they make a metal strip (prob aluminium) that's roughly 10' x
We're having a new carpet fitted very soon. It will cover only half the
room's length because there's a (1cm high) block wood parquet-type floor
which already covers the other half. We are content with the wood block
floor and don't intend to remove it.
While lifting the old carpet, underfelt and mats from the floorboards from
one half of the room, the existing metal strip that joins wood block to
carpet, is only 8ft in length!! Probably 9'4" is about the measurement
I have just phoned our carpet suppliers. They only do 8' lengths, brass
effect or aluminium.
What do you do?
The aluminium carpet strips very qucky look horrid if furniture etc is moved
Get a piece of wood to match the floor, and have a rebate cut in one edge of
the underside marginally shallower than the carpet to pinch it and hold it
down with nice brass screws.
