Spotted Gum Flooring will transform your floor into a design centrepiece
Spotted Gum flooring grabs your attention the moment you step onto it. A flow of beautiful tones, from blond through to deep chocolate, highlights of grey and rich reds, with low lights of softest pink hues… it can be as bold or subtle as you wish for your home.
Spotted Gum engineered flooring will remain as stunning on day one, as they will forever, with Lifewood’s revolutionary Stabilised Solid technology. Scientifically developed over 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 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 harmony within the board, and incredible stability.
It is also the most environmentally sustainable flooring practice in the world. – See our Spotted Gum flooring reviews
Real Australian Hardwood throughout your home
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.
Spotted Gum flooring is one of the most popular Australian timber species among all of the Australian hardwood flooring options. Its wavy grain and mix of light brown tones produce an attractive blend of Australian timber tones and features.
Now you can have the stability of an engineered floor combined with the beauty of solid timber floorboards. Lifewood Spotted Gum flooring has a concealed tongue and groove system which makes each board sit perfectly flush while enhancing the level of water resistance.
The history of spotted gum speaks to its durability. This resilient Australian hardwood was used heavily for shipbuilding, construction, agricultural machinery and, of course, timber floorboards. Nowadays you will find it used everywhere – indoors, outdoors and structurally. You will see it in industry, used for wharf and bridge construction and in railway sleepers, and residentially in decks, frames, cladding, interior lining and of course, in beautiful spotted gum solid timber flooring.
We source our own logs to ensure sustainability for all our Spotted Gum flooring needs
Appropriate for fire-prone areas, spotted gum timber that is greater than 18mm thick does not require fire retardant treatment. This hardwood has a very high durability against heavy traffic and is great for active families and those with pets.
Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, and which enhance the beautiful grain and colour of spotted gum without cloudiness or an overly-reflective high gloss.
