Jarrah Timber Floors

This month’s feature timber is Jarrah Timber Floors. Jarrah has been used for many years in construction and housing in Western Australia. It is a very traditional floorboard. Consequently, a lot of old houses have Jarrah laying hidden underneath carpets. In addition to this, Jarrah continues to be a favourite choice for new floorboards.  There are good reasons why this gorgeous timber has stood the test of time. Read on for more information about this popular timber: Jarrah Timber Floors

Jarrah Timber Floors Features:

  • Sourced in Western Australia
  • Has a Janka Hardness rating of 8.5kn (considered hard)
  • Characterised by its rich red/brown colour
  • It’s darker colouring creates a very warm atmosphere
  • However, this darker colouring can make smaller/darker areas appear closed in 
  • Feature grade Jarrah timber can be priced as low as $43.50/metre square but may go up to almost $70/metre square for higher grade timber (note these prices are for the timber only, prices may vary due to timber availability and other factors).

The above features explain why Jarrah Timber Floors have remained so popular. This popularity has resulted in New Age Timber Floors having a lot of experience sanding and polishing these floorboards.
