How to handle carpet to to tile transition?

Hi guys,

I'm tearing out vinyl and underlayment from a bathroom floor that meets up with carpet in the next room. My question is.. At the doorway, when I remove the brass transition strip that hold the carpet down, what's the best way to finish that off. In the past, new carpet is usually going in after me so I let the carpet guy deal with it. I think they usually fold it over the edge of the tile to protect it. I'm not a carpet guy. Help!

Most of us, put a tack strip down near the tile, and tuck the carpet. Make sure the tile is close enough to tuck. Leave gap tween the tack strip and edge of tile.

If you're trying this for the first time, you might appreciate this tip:
If your metal strip has reverse hooks on it to keep the stretch on the carpet, do yourself a favor and nail down a cleat through the carpeting so you can maintain that stretch while you work. Maybe you have a carpet stretcher or knee kicker and this step isn't necessary...but if you don't, this will help when it comes time to install the tack strip.

Todd,

Here is a lil something from our liberry to help ya out. Takes ya through it step by step. If you haven't finished the tile yet, you can put a profile there at the doorway like a Schluter profile, you don't have to. This is something the more you do it the better you get but this thread takes you through it step by step.
