Hardwood / Carpet Trim

I called Advanced Flooring to get a quote on a custom runner for the main hallway.  When I was on the phone asking about it, our rep from AF (not Ryan) asked how things were or if there were any issues.  I had noticed the carpet at the bottom of the stairs was already beginning to fray a little bit, a few strands of thread were starting to pop up.  Not a big deal but he asked.  I also noticed a patch of the carpet coming off, probably not enough glue.  He wanted to send someone out to take care of it.  I asked how they would take care of the fraying so it doesn't happen down the road.

After some discussion it was decided they would put a piece of trim, similar to the footer piece along the rest of the wall.  The guy came and trimmed off the frayed carpet.  He then cut a piece of trim and installed it.  I think it looks better.  What do you guys think?

  1. Wow - that looks great. Surprised they didn't do that to start with.

  2. I think it blends in and will fade into the "grey noise" of life. Considering I would expend brain cells worrying about future fraying, I would prefer it myself!

  3. Wow! A little piece of quarter-round can make all the difference, can't it? I think it looks tons better with the trim.

  6. That looks great and after a little bit you will forget all about it. It is great that they just asked and jumped right in to take care of the situation.
