Jarrah flooring is a Western Australian treasure appreciated all over the world for it’s look and durability.
Born and grown only in Western Australia, just like Lifewood, means we can source our Jarrah flooring from mine site clearings, tree salvage operations from storm-blown trees and land clearings, taking our commitment to sustainability to another level.
Jarrah is a dense timber, making it extremely durable and, very importantly, highly resistant to insect attack, including termites and marine borers. This makes Jarrah flooring a favourable timber choice for outdoor use, and of course, for a beautiful floor in your home.
- Good resistance to fire
- Very hard-wearing
- Great for high traffic areas
Jarrah is used in fine-looking furniture and joinery, paneling and flooring. In the past, you would find Jarrah making up wharf’s and bridges, and also in many construction areas, to make railway sleepers, poles and piles. In the nineteenth century, it was widely used for rich red cobbles.

Have peace of mind that your Jarrah flooring will last a lifetime
Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, which enhance the beautiful grain and colour of Jarrah without cloudiness or an overly-reflective high gloss.
Throughout the boards construction are multiple moisture barriers, with all layers bonded together with emission-safe glue. On the finished product, all six sides of each and every Jarrah floorboard are coated in an extra moisture barrier.
Your Lifewood Jarrah flooring comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Our engineered technology utilises the whole Jarrah tree
And your Jarrah floorboards will remain looking as stunning on day one, as they will forever, with Lifewood’s revolutionary Stabilised Solid technology. Scientifically developed and embodying years of experience with timber milling, a Stabilised Solid board has a patented, engineered core, which stops the boards and floor from cupping or warping due to the reaction of moisture with the natural timber product.
The Stabilised Solid core is secured between a thick layer on top of the best quality and most beautiful looking part of the Jarrah timber, and the base, which is a whole plank of the same uninterrupted timber. Using the same timber type for the whole floorboard creates balance and in harmony within the board, and incredible stability. It is also the most environmentally sustainable flooring practice in the world.
