    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.

    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.
