Laminate "End Molding" Purpose?

What is the function of laminate end molding? I read that it is used when the laminate flooring terminates @ a fireplace or sliding glass doors. What about if you have a dbl outside entry door & opposing brick wall? I would prefer not to have to use any additional laminate molding, to keep costs down. How would you address the dbl front door aluminum threshold & opposing brick wall, so it has a nice finished appearance?

If it can't be undercut so the laminate can slide underneath and still have the expansion gap needed, then I use an endcap molding. Anything else and you can expect trouble later.

Perry,

I will go w/ your recommendation, although Floorhouse.com's Uniboard does not offer end molding. Pergo's Simple Solutions does, but it's cherry finish is not an exact match for the Sam's Uniboard Sonoma Cherry.
