Installing American Forest T-Mold With a Floating Floor
 
When installing T-Moldings on a floating floor, it is important not to obstruct the space for expansion or contraction recommended by the American Forest Hardwood Flooring installation recommendations.  For this reason, you will need a space between the two adjoining floors of approximately 1-1/4  inches to properly install the T-Molding.
 
Installing T-Molding Between a Stationary Floor and a Floating Floor:  Start the installation by installing a shim wherever you plan to install a T-Molding.  The shim should be placed approximately 1 inch from the edge of the floor to which you are transitioning.  Secure the shim in place by either nailing or gluing it down.  Install the pad with the edge of the pad placed directly against the shim.  Next, install the floating floor over the shim so that only 1/4 to 3/8 inch of shim is showing under the floor.  The shim serves to stabilize the floor from compressing under weight.  Lay the T-Molding in place.  Apply a 1/4 inch bead of construction adhesive to the top edge of the stationary floor.  Seat the molding in place, making sure that you have a minimum of a 1/4 inch molding overlap on the wood flooring, including an expansion space between the T-Molding and the wood floor to handle expansion or contraction.
 
Installing T-Molding Between Two Floating Floors:  When installing the T-Molding between two floating wood floors, begin the installation by installing the shims under the edges of the floating floors where you plan to install T-Molding.  The shim can be butted together or separated no more than 1 inch.  Secure the shims in place by either nailing or gluing them down.  Install the pad with the edge of the pad placed directly against each shim.  Next, install the floating floor over the shim so that only 1/4 to 3/8 inch of shim is showing under the floor.  The shim serves to stabilize the floor from compressing under weight.  Lay the T-Molding in place.  Apply a 1/4 inch bead of construction adhesive to the top edge of one side of the wood floor (Caution:  Do not glue both sides).  Seat the molding in place, making sure that you have a minimum of 1/4 inch molding overlap on the side of the flooring that is not glued.  Make sure you also include an expansion space between the molding and the sides of the wood floor that are not glued to handle the expansion or contraction of both floors.
