Champion Floors offers many different styles, designs, and types of moldings to complement and finish out your new flooring. Whether it’s wood, laminate, pvc, tile, or carpet, we have the right molding for you. We can even custom stain moldings to your specifications. Champion Floors also offers baseboard replacement as well as shoe molding or quarter round installation. This service provides the finishing touch on any new flooring installed (see our services page for more information). Below you will find a basic description for some of the molding choices that we have to offer.
Reducer - Used to create a smooth transition between two floors of different heights, as well as protect the planks exposed edge from damage caused by foot traffic.
T-Molding - Used to bridge two areas of flooring that are the exact same height. The T-Molding overlaps the exposed edges of the floor and is secured only to the sub floor, never to the flooring itself.
Universal Edge / Square Nosing - Used where the laminate flooring butts up to carpeting, or various vertical surfaces where the edge will be exposed, such as along a fireplace.
Stair Nosing - Similar to a flush stair nosing except the nosing overlaps the exposed edge of the floor. The overlapping stair nosing is secured to the sub floor and not to the laminate floor so the floor is free to move. Never butt the nosing tightly to the laminate flooring.
Quarter Round / Shoe Molding - Gives the floor a finished look and protects the edges of the laminate flooring. Never secure the quarter round to the laminate flooring. Instead, the quarter round should always be attached to the vertical wall.
Bullnose - An alternative to quarter round are Bullnose moldings, which finish a tile floor by the wall much like a ceramic or stone floor would. Also available in select wood finishes, a bull nose is a much more grand way frame the floor, much like a base board would. Bullnose moldings should be attached tot he wall, not the floor, to provide adequate expansion space.
