    quick one folks.

    I'm tiling my hallway and my porch in the same tiles. The floors are the same level.

    The connecting door is a heavy timber front door (not UPVC).

    The existing heavy duty doorbar/seal is screwed to the timber floor.

    See attached photo - NB the old tiles shown in the porch will be lifted first.

    Do I tile up-to the doorbar on each side or do I tile under the door and fit some sort of doorseal over the tiles?

    Thank you.

    if they are in the same tiles at the same height why not just run all the way through ?

    Hi - there would be a gap under the front door. Need some sort of threshold or doorbar (current one had a collapsible rubber strip underneath)

    Sorry I thought this was internal. Some sort of storm guard which I think fits over the tiles and external step. screwfix sell them.
