Vintage Prime Plus Heart Pine


Characteristics of  Vintage Prime Plus Heart Pine

Prime Plus Grade Heart Pine is our “middle grade” of heart pine. Selected for grade during processing,

  • Prime plus is +85% heart wood, +65%clear, and +60% vertical grain.
  • Various sizes of sound knots, nail holes, flat grain, and occasional sapwood are allowed.
  • Percentages are based on RW 3” to 6”. Wider boards up to 10” may have lower percentages.
  • By comparison, our Select/Clear grade is a “museum grade, ” and prime plus is a “premium residential grade.”

Found extensively in Colonial Williamsburg, “Heart Pine” is a particular species of yellow pine.  Pinus Palustris,  aka “long leaf yellow pine”(its needles often exceeded 12” in length), and “Georgia pine”, grew as the predominant coniferous tree from the gulf coast to northern Virginia. Heart Pine was most heavily harvested after the Civil War and into the 1920’s. Its use as the preferred structural heavy timber in most industrial factories, warehouses, and tenant buildings provides us with a treasured resource preserved for careful extraction and reuse.

 


Specifications

  • Reclaimed solid heart pine flooring is normally milled to 3/4” thickness.
  • 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.
