    Arron replied to a thread floorboard gaps and filling in Flooring
    I used no more gaps hardwood flooring to fill a gap deliberately left between a laminate floating floor and a tiled floor. Actually its between the laminate and an aluminium bead at the edge of the tiled floor. It’s is a long sinusoïdal curve across the room. That was about 2 years ago and it’s doing well - so a pretty amazing product really as the amount of expansion/contraction on the laminate floor in last years weather conditions was diabolical, and it gets walked on many times each day. ...
