I have a carpet/tile transition where the carpet is becoming frayed. Pictures below for reference.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to fix this. I don't have any spare carpet samples to use for patching. I'm not entirely sure, but I think this may have started because the padding under the carpet was not cut properly and it prevented the carpet from sticking to the transition strip spikes.
I'm not sure if it would be better to try and find a different transition strip that would cover the frayed area, or try to pull the carpet back, cut off the frayed area and re-attach the carpet to the strip (fixing the poor padding cut job in the process). If I were to cut off a quarter-half inch of this carpet would I even be able to pull it forward? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
