Shenandaoh Blend Distressed

Distressed wooden flooring is a particular style that is designed to give an old and worn feel to a new hardwood floor.

Distressed boards tend to come with a textured finish that enhances the grain of the wood. They also tend to be an extra rustic grade meaning the floors feature their fair share of knots, blemishes, cracks and natural features within the timber – giving it the character and charm that many desire.

A good quality distressed engineered oak floorboard will provide you with all the strength, stability and reliability of a well-made engineered oak floor with the characteristics similar to an old reclaimed floorboard.

While the wood used for distressed flooring is rustic in its grade, not all rustic flooring is distressed. You can get rustic engineered oak flooring, which will feature many knots and natural features, without the textured grain, large splits within the timber and rough edges.


“One of our favorite flooring options (either solid or engineered) is the Shenandoah Blend.  As the name states, this wood flooring solution is a mixed blend of reclaimed wood from the Shenandoah region.  That means, fences, barns, cabins and even warehouses.

This mix of woods pays homage to one of the most treasured, scenic sites in Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley. The first settlers were struck speechless by its beauty and today, climbers and hikers find the sight of the Shenandoah’s vast acres of trees just as breathtaking.

Logging and clearing almost deforested the Shenandoah Valley until the National Park Service began preservation efforts, and now it is almost fully forested again. A hike through these hills takes you back in time to an earlier day when trees reached the sky and wood of all kinds was abundant.

Early settlers and colonists used a mix of these woods to build homes, barns, and sheds. At Cochran’s, we take pride in rescuing these beams and timbers to give them new life. Today’s consumers are looking for wood that shows history and character, and our Shenandoah Blend has both.” (Shenandoah)
