I have a small room off of my garage which is raised up a good 4+ inches from the level of the garage. I am finishing this room, and the only part I had someone come out for was to install the carpet.
It is my own fault for not saying something up front, but they did not bring the carpet all the way through the door jamb to the edge of the concrete floor where the step down into the garage is. Instead they cut the carpet in the middle of the jamb right under where the door closes.
Everything looks great, except I am left with a chunk of the original vinyl floor covering the rest of the doorway.
So, 2 questions...
1. Is what they did the correct way to finish the carpet given my description above? At least, is it a common way to do things?
2. Does anyone have a recommendation as to how I might cover this remaining vinyl? I don't necessarily need to have carpet run all the way to the edge, though I suppose that is one option (to rip out the terminator they put in the jamb, add a new chunk of carpet and pad and seam it in the middle of the jamb). Maybe a very wide threshold? Something else I'm not thinking of?
Thanks in advance.
