Frequently Asked Questions about Blackbutt Flooring.


We’re proud to say that Lifewood is the only company in Australia that controls the whole manufacturing process of its product.

From ethically sourcing all our logs, to production quality assurance in our factories in Vietnam and Indonesia, we control and can guarantee that every stage of the Lifewood manufacturing process is ethical and sustainable.

Lifewood flooring is a mixture of both thanks to our patented Stabilised Solid manufacturing structure.

Our boards are engineered using solid timber on all 3 layers of the board. This enables us to use the most beautiful part of the timber as the surface layer and the less attractive pieces as the bottom layers. We’re able to utalise a lot more of the tree with this method.

The middle layer of the board is cross-engineered at a right angle and functions as the core layer of the board. This cross-layering gives the core the ability to yield to the natural movement of its environment, and yet hold this movement entirely within its core, so it does not affect the top and bottom layers of the floorboard. This detailed, extensive part of the process is precise and quality controlled with great attention.


All Lifewood floors are pre-finished timber boards which come with 9 layers of Polyurethane protective coating, applied to all 6 sides of each board. This makes the floor highly resistant to spillage and day to day surface wear.

This advanced coating makes the floor suitable for active households and is pet-friendly. Commonly, most surface scratches will just mark the coating and not penetrate the wooden surface. These scratches can be easily covered with a textile marker which we give to all our clients.


We will always suggest to direct stick a Lifewood floor.

Direct stick is a method of installation where the floor boards are glued directly to the sub floor using timber floor adhesives.

The advantages of this way of installation are that you can sand and polish the floor more times giving your floor a much longer lifetime, plus it eliminates hollow echo from under the boards.

The timber has a light to mid-brown color with a straight grain and a uniform texture, and it is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear.

Blackbutt flooring is a popular choice for homes and commercial properties in Australia due to its natural beauty, strength, and versatility. It can be used in a wide range of interior design styles, from contemporary to traditional, and it is suitable for high-traffic areas such as hallways, living rooms, and kitchens. Additionally, blackbutt flooring is relatively easy to maintain and can be sanded and refinished multiple times to restore its original appearance.

What is the cost of blackbutt flooring?

The cost of blackbutt flooring in Australia can vary depending on several factors, including the quality and grade of the timber, the width and length of the planks, the installation method, and the location of the supplier.  Talk to one of our consultants to get an accurate idea of the cost for your specific requirements, or download our price guide for details.

Is blackbutt flooring durable?

Blackbutt flooring is known for its durability and strength. It has a Janka hardness rating of 9.1, higher than many commonly used hardwoods in Australia, such as oak or maple.

It means that blackbutt flooring is less likely to dent, scratch, or show signs of wear and tear over time, making it a popular choice for high-traffic areas in both residential and commercial properties. Blackbutt timber is also naturally resistant to decay, termites, and other pests, further adding to its durability.

With proper maintenance and care, blackbutt flooring can last for decades and may up to a century, making it a long-term investment for your property.

Is blackbutt flooring easy to maintain?

Yes, maintaining blackbutt flooring is relatively straightforward. Following the simple tips below, you can keep your blackbutt flooring looking beautiful and extend its lifespan.

  • Regular Cleaning: Regular sweeping or vacuuming to remove dirt, dust, and debris can help prevent scratches and abrasions on the flooring. You can also use a damp mop and a mild cleaning solution for timber floors to clean the surface. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the finish or timber.
  • Avoid Water Damage: Excess water or moisture can damage timber flooring, so wipe up spills immediately and avoid leaving standing water on the floor. Put doormats at entrances to prevent dirt and water from being tracked onto the floor.
  • Protect from Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause timber flooring to fade and age prematurely. Use curtains, blinds, or window films to protect your blackbutt flooring from UV radiation.
  • Use Furniture Pads: Place furniture pads or felt protectors under furniture legs to prevent scratches and dents when moving or rearranging furniture.
  • Sand and Refinish: If the flooring starts to show signs of wear and tear or scratches, it may be necessary to sand and refinish the surface to restore its original appearance.

Is blackbutt flooring environmentally friendly?

Yes, blackbutt flooring is a sustainable and environmentally friendly option if you want a natural, durable, and beautiful flooring solution. Lifewood uses logs harvested from managed forests, where new trees are replanted to replace those that have been harvested. It ensures a continuous supply of timber without depleting natural resources or causing damage to the environment.

Blackbutt timber is also a renewable resource – it can be regrown and harvested indefinitely.

Additionally, blackbutt trees grow relatively quickly, which makes them a more sustainable and efficient source of timber compared to slower-growing hardwoods.


Furthermore, blackbutt flooring has a long lifespan and can be recycled at the end of its life, which reduces waste and helps conserve natural resources.
