Question Laminate transitions

What is the proper way to install carpet transition and T molding as far as coming up to the door frame? Should the door frame be cut to allow the transition to slip underneath or should it just come up to the frame leaving 1/4 " expansion space on each side and fill the gap with flexible caulking? Thanks for any advice and a great forum.

The transition strip can be cut tight to the door molding, it does not require room for expansion.
Be sure that you fasten the transition (nail or glue, I prefer glue) to the subfloor not the laminate.
It is necessary to leave expansion between the laminate and the transition strip.
