I’m installing laminate flooring in my house and just got to my front door and realized the threshold won’t have molding on it. How is this normally handled? The transition pieces are only for interior doorways.
What you could do is get a good flexible and durable caulk that can expand and retract with the flooring and use that to fill the gap between the flooring and the threshold.
Alternatively I think I've heard of people using wood filler instead but if you choose this route make sure it can expand and retract with the flooring.
Typically, a piece of shoe moulding is used to cover a small gap against a threshold. I prefer my rips out of sight, so when possible, I start my floors at the front of the house and put my rips at the back of the house.
A general rule for installing any type of hardwood flooring is to start on the longest exterior wall.
