Matai Floorboards

Matai has been used in New Zealand for many years as a native wood for timber floors.


It was one of the first timbers used for flooring when our houses were built in the 1800s. It is popular and an excellent option for high-end users with its hardness, wearing ability and dimensional stability. The colour of Matai is straw yellow to chestnut yellow with a slight reddish tinge. It darkens to a deep red-brown when exposed to air. Your Matai floors can be sanded and coated with the usual moisture cure poly or a water-based poly. As one of New Zealand’s finest and most premium native species, it can give a whole new life to your home.
