What is Hardwood Timber Flooring?
Hardwood/solid timber flooring is composed of layers of real wood pressed together during a production process. If you are looking for a flooring option that is not only visually stunning but also durable, hardwood timber is the way to go. As an increasingly popular choice of flooring nowadays, hardwood timber is perfect for families because unlike carpets, timber is one the easiest surfaces to keep clean and looking immaculate for the longest time.
There are various options to consider when selecting your desired hardwood flooring, such as the pattern or cut of the timber, colouring and quality level – with the mentioned factors impacting the final cost. The team at Ace Timber Floors will work with you from beginning to end to make sure all your flooring needs are met at the highest quality possible.
What is the Cost of Hardwood Timber Flooring?
The price of hardwood/solid timber is dependent on the quality or grade of the flooring product you choose and the size of the area. The type of timber you select will have a significant impact on the overall pricing of the flooring, with imported wood species costing the most. Luckily in Australia there are many different types of native wood species to choose from, but these can vary significantly in cost as well.
Higher-grade hardwood products start from $100 per square metre – bear in mind, fitting high quality timber flooring into a sizable area can set you back thousands including installation. However, if you are on a tighter budget, there are lower-grade flooring options starting around $50 per square metre. There is also the option to gloss your hardwood timber floors with a protective varnish, helping to maintain your floors from everyday wear and tear.
Is Hardwood Timber Flooring Worth it?
Prices for different types of hardwood timber vary depending on their grade level, width of the boards and their “Janka” rating, their hardness rating. This industry standard acts as a guideline for ranking timber types based on their resilience, therefore, the higher the timber species ranks, the more dense and harder the timber is. For example, the softer Tasmanian Oak timber species starts from $65 per square metre, where the higher-grade Spotted Gum will be more.
