What you need to know about spotted gum flooring

While spotted gum is often lumped together as a single type of wood, the term actually applied to the timber boards produced by several Australian species. This variety, coupled with the differences between saplings and full-grown trees, lend the timber to an assortment of tones and grains suitable for any home. These include Eucalyptus maculata, Eucalyptus citriodora, and Corymbia henryi, to name just a few.

The depth of colour in spotted gum ranges from reddish browns to pale tan and everything in between. This can make it easier to match with existing furnishings and incorporate other wood tones into a space. And no, the timber is not spotted. The wood takes its name from the dappled bark on the tree’s exterior.

One thing all spotted gum species have in common is their durability. The timber is the hardest of all Australian hardwood, coming in at an 11kN rating on the Janka test. This makes it an excellent choice for homes and offices without fear of damage or foot traffic taking its toll.

Benefits of spotted gum flooring

✔️ Diverse colourways and grains
✔️ Easy to clean and maintain
✔️ Sustainably grown in Australia
✔️ Affordable flooring option

What finishes work best for spotted gum?

The beauty of spotted gum is that it has its own natural design and colouration. You don’t need to go overboard with finishing these boards, but you do have a few options.

Adding oil to the floorboards is one way to bring out the rich colours and grains in spotted gum without changing the overall appearance. This also adds some protection to the wood material itself. You can also opt to have the boards sealed to further protect them and add a bit more shine. Spotted gumwood can be stained if you prefer, though remember that with so many different shades between boards, the colour may take differently to each.

What is the cost of spotted gum flooring in Perth?

Spotted gum floors may look like a million bucks, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend that much. In fact, this is one of the more affordable options on the market when it comes to Australian hardwoods.

The average cost of spotted gum timber falls between $85 to $100 per m2. The range here is due to not just seller costs but also a rarity in the available colourways for your size project. You can use the table below to estimate the costs for your new flooring, but we always recommend requesting a quote from a professional flooring company to be sure of all costs involved.

Can I install these floors on my own?

There’s quite a lot that goes into installing hardwood flooring, so while even the most ambitious homeowners may be able to tackle the project, it’s best to leave this to the pros. To start with, you have to make sure that the subfloor is leveled and prepared to receive the hardwood. Then, you have to be able to measure, cut, and affix the hardwood in place, usually with glue or nails. The process repeats itself until the floor is covered, but don’t forget edging or borders that also need to be put in place.

Then comes any additional sanding, polishing, oiling, sealing, or staining that you might like. All of this requires proper equipment, not to mention ventilation, and without the right amount of manpower, this could take you weeks to finish. With a professional installer, you’ll get the job done right and, in most cases, in 1-3 days.

Frequently Asked Questions about Spotted Gum Flooring in Perth

Does spotted gum have fire resistant properties?

Yes, spotted gum with a thickness of 18mm or more is rated BAL 12.5, 19 and 29 according to AS3959.

How do you clean spotted gum flooring?

Largely the same way you would clean most hardwood floors. Do not use harsh chemicals since this can either diminish the protective effects of sealants and polish or eat away at the wood itself over time. You can lightly dust or vacuum the flooring as needed. Wipe up spills as they happen, and only use a damp cloth or mop for more thorough cleaning.

What about termites?

Great news: spotted gum is also naturally termite resistant. Of course, you’ll want to continue your pest control services regardless to keep the whole home, not just your floors, pest free.
