When to Use: Overlap Reducers are used with Floating Floors to provide a transition between from a bamboo wood floor to a different flooring type (tile, carpet, etc.), providing for a professional looking installation.
Installation Note: When installing an Overlap Reducer molding on a floating floor, it is important not to attach the Overlap Reducer directly to the bamboo wood flooring as the floor must be able to expand or contract under the lip of the molding by ½” in either direction. To attach the molding, apply one or two 1/4 inch beads of construction adhesive to the subfloor and seat the molding in place. If nailing the Overlap Reducer to the wood subfloor, pre-drill the molding to prevent splitting and nail to the subfloor behind the lip of the molding. When nailing, be careful not to obstruct the floor’s expansion space under the molding.
