Tile and pre-hung door installation

I have posted here previously about how to solve a tile problem when removing old tile and everyone was a great help. Thanks again!

I have one question for anyone here who might have done this or was working in a situation where this was going on. I am putting tile down in an area that will also be getting 2 new pre-hung doors put in. One door will be from the hallway to a bathroom and the tile will also be put down in the hallway and bathroom (same tile). The other door will be leading into the laundry room but the tile is not going into the laundry room.

My two questions are: (1) Should the tile or the door be done first (which is the best order to do that), and (2) Does anyone have any suggestions about how to do the transistion area from the hallway to the bathroom (options for the threshold area)?

Mike

Mike, setting the tile after the door is hung means more work for you. If you have the choice, hang the door after tiling.

If I read your second question right, your tile goes through this door from one room to the other. If so, plan your layout so both rooms look good, or the most visible room looks best, and let the pattern flow through the door.

Thanks Bob, that helps. Yes, you are correct, the tile will go from one room to the other room. The hallway will always be visible so I guess I should arrange that and have it just flow into the bathroom area then.

Thanks!

What Bob said unless you have a jamb saw and then it doesn't matter if you put the tile or door first.

Given the option, tile first, then doors.

Even if you got you a jamb saw.

My opinion; worth price charged.
