We have just finished tiling our bahtroom. When the carpet was put in, the installers left about 4 inches of extra carpet attached to a tack strip that is 1/2 inch from the edge of the tile. Do we need to move the tack srip closer to the edge of the tile? and how do we cut and tuck it?

Hi House #2,

I think you need a Transition Strip between the 2 floorings. Call up the folks that installed your carpeting and find out more. Beyond that, you MAY need to have THEM move the carpeting, or you may need to simply install a Strip. It usually depends on the 'characteristics' of where the 2 floors meet, which I can't see from here.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: If it's just a Strip you need, you can install that yourself. ALl you'll need is a drill, a drill bit, and some screws. Just take your time. Oh, perhaps this 'gap' is for a piece of Marbled Moulding. That's what we have for our Transition Strip. It's about 4" in width ...
