I picked up a small job replacing a laminate floor. I've done a few but it's the first one I have had to do that runs into a patio door. The laminate is running parallel with the patio door. The homeowner has asked if I can dream up any ideas to keep the laminate away from the edge as was previously done. Maybe a filler strip etc. not made from mdf less susceptible to moisture the first 2 1/2 inches. The snow and rain was creeping in caused with the door opening and closing. They had a carpet mat there but didn't keep things dry. The last person to install it just ran a bead of silicone over the laminate that was gapped 1/4" away which of course failed and in turn lifted the mdf.
