    Default Concrete threshold edge chipped - advice please

    The very edge of the concrete front door threshold has been badly chipped recently - one large and small chunk of the concrete now missing probably by movers and their trolleys.

    I want to protect it in future. What!s the best way?

    Could I add a metal edge?

    There's plenty of non slip nosings on the market that will cover up pretty easy. Just google "safety non slip nosing", and sure you'll find something to suit, just measure how far down the step the big chunk is to make sure you cover up, and upside is it'll be a safety upgrade!

    Don’t have movers in or find ones that can do the job properly without damage.

    yeah just glue some non slip edging or even some thin aluminium angle there.
