Jarrah Flooring

Species:  Eucalyptus marginata

100% Real Timber From Top To Bottom

Jarrah wood 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 it a favourable timber 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 floor will last a lifetime

Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, and 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 floorboard are coated in an extra moisture barrier.

Your Lifewood Jarrah floor comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Lifewood Jarrah timber flooring is perfect for staircases and landings.

Our engineered technology utilises the whole Jarrah tree

A Jarrah hardwood floor feels like a rich red wine in front of an open fire – warm, enveloping, great for a both grand home steeped in history or for a smart, modern look. With its lush rose tones, this timeless, stunning timber is only grown in Western Australia’s South West, and will add an abundance of atmosphere to any home.

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.

1. No cheap substitutes

Each layer uses the same hardwood, creating superior stability and a higher resistance to termites.

2. Hand selected boards

Only the highest grade boards are selected for the top layer, creating colour consistency and a beautiful looking floor.

3. Patented hardwood core

Our unique engineering method stabilises the board and prevents movement of the wood, which can result in cupping and shrinking.

4. Totally sustainable

No part of the timber log is wasted. No other timber is required to construct our floorboards.

5. Hard wearing coating

Our custom formulated coatings bring our floors to life, highlighting their natural beauty and protecting them from damage.

6. Resandable

Our boards have a thick surface layer which can be sanded multiple times. Lifewood floors are designed to last a lifetime.

7. Low emissions

We use very low emission glue that is safe in your home and guarantees the boards do not delaminate. There is also no need for coatings to be applied in your home.

8. Moisture resistant

Our patented core design prevents moisture getting into the board. We then coat the entire board in a moisture barrier for added protection.
