Advantages of Jarrah decking
Jarrah is an eco-friendly timber, making it an excellent choice for decking. Some of the other advantages include:
Jarrah has a hardness rating of 9. It is a dense timber and hardwearing. It is also sufficiently soft to make it a timber product that is amenable as a building timber.
Jarrah timber decking has a good oil level composition. It is suitable for sanding and varnishing, and provides a great polished finish.
- Colour and Grain
The colour is a lovely red with shades of brown. Jarrah decking timber also has an attractive grain pattern. The mix of the lovely colour and grain make Jarrah one of the most popular Australian timbers.
In time, the redness of the Jarrah decking timber deepens and becomes more of a burgundy colour. If left to naturally weather, the timber becomes grey in colour.
Jarrah decking has an expected lifetime of 25 years. This is about half the lifetime of more durable Class 1 timbers such as Spotted gum and Blackbutt.
- Termite Resistance
The native Australian Jarrah has a natural termite resistance making it perfect for outdoor use.
- Rot Resistance
Jarrah decking timbers are naturally rotting and decay resistant. This makes Jarrah decking an excellent choice for pool decking and for wooden spas and hot tubs.
- Fire Resistance
West Australian Jarrah timber is naturally fire resistant as well due to the density of the wood.
