Everyone likes the look of beautiful hardwood, ceramic tile, stone, or marble floors in a home or office. However, the installation of carpet next to these hard surfaces has been very difficult because of the height difference between the carpet and the hard surfaces. Until the development of Carpet Shims, carpet installers used a multitude of remedies to solve this problem. They include using double, or even triple, tack strips (shown at left) next to the hard surface which leaves an unsightly drop off. Building a ramp out of materials such as float compound which may break up over time and is extremely time consuming; shake shingles (expensive, not easy to use); or a cardboard build-up which also breaks down over time. Metal or wood thresholds may be used but they are not widely preferred by the homeowner.
