I am going to be installing hardwood flooring (Oak) on place of carpet. The wood will mate up with a schluter (sp?) strip with tile on other side.
After I remove the carpeting I see they have shims for the carpeting to match the tile height. Is it an accepted / recommended practice to shim the wood floor to reach the height of the tile ?
Would the ~1/4" shims create any problem for the wood floor long term ? Or should I install 1/4" plywood over entire floor to raise height? (I'm talking about 13 sheets single layer across entire floor)
I am not a big fan of transition pieces as they create a tripping hazard, but I do recognize that to be a solution.
