I have nearly finished tiling my grounnd floor. Only remaining bit is
tiling up to the french doors, which have a wooden threshold. Do I :
a- tile and grout up to the wood
b- use flexible sealant
c- use some kind of metal trim (if so, wherre do I get it, the sheds
don't have anything that looks suitable)
d- none of the above
You *should* be able to juts tile up to and grout, if the wood is
relatively stable. Howerver the best time iof year to do tghis is
midwinter, when teh C/H has reduced the realtive humidity and dried the
wood out. Otherwise hairline cracks are a possibility.
Wood shrinkage across the grain can be as much as 1% on summer to winter
basis - so on e.g. a 50mm wide bit, pinned in the middle , that's .25mm.
Not huge, but enough to possibly crack grout. Flexible sealer would be
the thing...but it looks horrid.
Possible the simple answer is grout iot and put a wood bead over the top
to avoid unsightliniess.
