1/4" for Hardwood

In reply to Floors are 1/4" lower and joists run 90 degree different by Ike Ruckman on November 17th, 2001 04:37 PM [Go to top of thread]

isnt that big of deal.
Did you open up the whole wall or just a doorway?

Your hardwood should run across the joists not with them.
Run the hardwood across the joists in the new room, make a 18"-24" wide border in the dining room and then run the field across the joists.

If the transition is in a doorway, get a piece of 4/4 S4S Oak (or whatever floor is) and make your transition strip the thickness of the wall.

If you opened up the wall the length of the room, you can add 1/4 plywood to the floor, glue and nail the H*** out of it

Or use a belt sander and feather out the 1/4" differance in the floor.

Or if the flooring runs 90 degrees to the transition, glue a few thin strips down to the floor to feather this out, the 3/4 flooring will float over this with out a problem.
