|For decades, carpet installers have had a problem transitioning carpet to hard suface floors... In September, 2001, CARPET SHIMS, LTD. solved that problem, and have continued to enhance its product line ever since! Today, all Carpet Shims' products qualify as environmentally friendly.
Everyone likes the look of beautiful hardwood, ceramic tile, stone, or marble floors in a home or office. However, the installation of carpet next to these hard surfaces has been very difficult because of the height difference between the carpet and the hard surfaces. Until the development of Carpet Shims, carpet installers used a multitude of remedies to solve this problem. They include using double, or even triple, tack strips (shown at left) next to the hard surface which leaves an unsightly drop off. Building a ramp out of materials such as float compound which may break up over time and is extremely time consuming; shake shingles (expensive, not easy to use); or a cardboard build-up which also breaks down over time. Metal or wood thresholds may be used but they are not widely preferred by the homeowner.
The other option would be to butt the carpet next the hard surface, leaving a sharp edge to step on. This hurts the feet and may chip or crack the hard surface when vacuuming.
NOTE: The un-informed installers still use the old rememdies. Insist on Carpet Shims to solve your transition problems.
