    I am looking to fit real wood flooring in two rooms with a door frame in the middle. I don't particularly want to have a joining strip. The boards will go along the width of the door and I am concerned that I might not be able to get the click-lock boards together once they are fitted into the undercut on the door frame.

    What is the best way to overcome this issue please?

    Thanks!

    I've seen many floors that don't have door bars between room transitions. Are you saying that they've not been fitted correctly?

    they arent clic lock

    I assume by real wood you mean an engineered board of sorts rather than lammie?

    with a floating floor you have to be quite careful about expansion as its a pinch point

    Yes it's engineered wood. I'm doing the whole downstairs of my house and I figured it would be best to just carry on through room transitions. I can use threshold trims but if there is a way to floor continuously that'd be preferable for me

    You should put a expansion strip in each doorway. But if not then try to have 12mm-15mm expansion everywhere if possible.
