Q- Im am putting down st. james laminate 12 mm floor in my dining room and kitchen. I was wondering what should I do when i get to the out side door? Should I try to put the floor under the wood strip on the bottom of the door? I guess it's call step plate. So far the job is going great !!!!! Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bob
A- When installing laminate up to an entry door, the best way to end the laminate is with a transition.
I can't see exactly what your describing, but chances are it may not be possible to go under the wood your describing.
You may need to use a square edge transition that will butt up against the wood plate.

You will have to leave a space across the doorway for the transition. But at the sides you will have to allow the laminate flooring to go under the door jambs. I hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.
