Vintage Berkshire Blend


Characteristics of Vintage Berkshire Blend

Vintage Berkshire Blend is our brand of mixed reclaimed hardwoods. Berkshire Blend is an unspecified blend of mostly northern hardwoods reclaimed from barns, houses, and commercial buildings. Berkshire Blend may contain hard maple, soft maple, birch, beech, poplar, ash, elm, hickory, hackberry, cherry, locust, and other reclaimed hardwood species found in quantities too small to warrant production as separate species. The overall appearance of the blend is a maple look. The subtle grains of maple and birch are mixed with the more distinct grains and colors of ash, hickory, elm, etc. Berkshire Blend flooring is nearly as dense as oak, and is suitable for use in most residential and commercial applications. Both boards resawn from beams and boards used as siding, sheathing and floor boards are combined to create a rustic look. Nail holes, rust stains, insect holes, sound knots and other characteristics of reclaimed wood complete the appearance.

Specifications

  • Reclaimed solid wood flooring is normally milled to 17mm thickness (same top wear layer above the T&G as 3/4”, with a thinner bottom layer to maximize yield from scarce supplies of raw material).
  • Vintage Lumber is also able to meet customer’s requirements for both thinner (minimum 3/8”) and thicker solid flooring.
  • Most of our solid flooring is produced in random widths(RW) from 2” to 10”, on the full inch face. Typical RW ranges are 3” to 6”(3,4,5,6), 3” to 8”, 7” to 10”, or any combination needed. Board widths of over 20” are sometimes available in certain species. The wider the widths required, the higher the costs. Our RW flooring is usually not sold as a repeating pattern(equal lineal feet of each width). For prompt filling of orders, we base our RW counts on available widths in inventory, and we calculate a 9 or 10 board width sequence to facilitate installation to avoid all of one width remaining at the end.
