do we have to keep this wood rimming the tile floor?

cheerpeopleMay 1, 2011

We are buying a house and due to water damage on the subfloor- the carpets are coming up for repairs to the subfloor- and if the carpets are moldy they are getting replaced.

My question is this wood rimming the tile floor where it transitions to carpet.

Does it serve any purpose?

If not I'd like tuck and turn ( I think that's what they call carpet to vinyl transitions) rather than have this strip of wood on the floor.

The wood strip may be just a decorative detail or it may be covering a problem with the tile edge. If the strip does not lap over the tile cut edge and the edge is reasonable straight, then a turn and tuck treatment can be done.
