    I have a tiled floor that transitions to a wooden floor using a sloping tile section about 100mm (4") wide. The problem is that the bedding under the sloping tiles has broken up and the tiles have become loose.

    I got some advice to just use tile adhesive instead of a concrete based bed. Is that a good idea?

    What's the best way to fix this?

    The transition goes from a concrete bed of around 30mm down to a metal strip about 10mm off the wooden floor.

    The "bedding" is too dry and crumbly it might give future difficulties in the field of tiles.
    What material is the "bedding"?

    The sloping tile threshold notion will not work - tile will split and chip.

    A tile trim strip, similar to the one in place, should have been set into the edge of the tile, and a pre-finished wood reducer used as a transition between tile and wood finished floors.

    The reducer might have to be planed and ripped on site.

    I assume that no door(s) will be hung?
