Concrete If you are working with a transition point where a concrete floor is in place, you cannot nail down the tack strips, nor should you use general construction adhesive to mount a tack strip in place. You can also pre-drill holes into the concrete with a concrete bit and then put anchors in the holes. Lay it so that the edge of the strip that is aimed downward is placed over the carpet. And there's no guarantee that putting force on the tack strip while installing or un-installing the carpet wouldn't pull up, crack or otherwise damage the tile. If I have to buy 8 area rugs, I might as well carpet the place. Pull the carpet over the top using a knee kicker.

Thanks for the useful information. Would be about as expensive. When it comes to the material of the surface of the transition strips, you can choose between wood, metal, and vinyl. But that sure didn't work; even after the 5 to 6 hours of cure time. Just install the tile and then cut the carpet where the tile section ends, right?
Carpet to Tile Transition Repair
When trimmed, the edge of the pad should butt up next to the tack strip with no gap. In these pictures above, you can see there is carpet in this room that has been put over porcelain tile. The carpet is then stretched over the top with a knee kicker and the slight overhanging carpet edge is tucked into the gap, with the hooks of the tack strip holding it in place. The friction underneath made it difficult to close. To prepare the subfloor for underlayment, pull up the carpet pad and pry up all the tack strips. Share your thoughts with other customers. My only qualms about moving back into the house is the ceramic tile.
Transfer Measurements For tough cuts around the sink or sewer opening, transfer a group of measurements to low tack tape on the tile. He spent more than 15 years as a third-generation tile and stone contractor before transitioning into freelance writing. Cut the edge of the carpet so that it reaches the edge of the tile perfectly. I really didn't want to have to fill in a bunch of small holes if I didn't have to. When the floor was wet you could see the grid pattern from tile that had once been on the floor.
