Hello ronc2 and welcome to the Community.

Install your laminate flooring up to the exterior threshold, maintaining the expansion gap required by the manufacturer.
You can then cover up the gap between the threshold and the laminate flooring by installing a piece of matching quarter round to the threshold, using a clear sealer, like OSI Quad

It bonds without a primer to most common substrates like cedar, fiberglass, aluminum, masonry and concrete.


Another option is to use a Threshold molding.  You should have the molding ahead of time, so you can plan ahead how close to the threshold to install the flooring to allow for expansion.


The threshold molding can also be glued or nailed in place.

Thank you for your inquiry.
