Forum Title: Transition piece left poly marks. Now what?
Cliff Note Version: .: Floor guy was instructed by us AND our contractor to make a transition that tapers down from the tile and meets the hardwood. .: Hardwoods guy made transition that overlaps the edge of the floor. .: He did what he wanted because it was easy, fast, and cheaper and tried to talk his way out of it. Didn't work. .: He walked off the job when we insisted he fix his mess. Now we're stuck with a poly mark across our floor where he polyed over the transition piece. Woo-hoo! Pics: Is this something I can try to fix myself with an 5 hand-held orbital sander? Or should I call a professional? I have the stain he used but am not 100% sure on the poly. I know he used Lenmar oil-based poly but I don't know if it was matte or some other finish. I was thinking that I would need to sand 4-5 inches into the edge of the floor so that the patch blends. But I stayed at a Holiday in Express last night so I'm not an expert. Any advice would be greatly appreciated on how to tackle this. thanks! lee

Not sure I get it since the wood looks pretty level with the other wood subfloor. And where's this tile at?

What you don't see is the tile 4 inches away from the hardwood. What you see in the pic is the subfloor. The tile is much higher (like over an inch). We wanted a transition that would slope down from the tile to the hardwood floor.
