Restain or replace for desired colour?

Q: I would like to stain my pre-stained oak floors a darker medium brown. They are a golden natural colour now. My floors are in great shape. I would hire a professional to do this. Can you recommend a professional to change stain color on hardwood floors, or would it be just as economic to replace them with dark floors already done at the factory?

A: It wouldn’t be economical to replace your factory finished floors just because you don’t like the colour. Have them sanded. It will cost more than a site finished floor because the bevels have to be dealt with as well as an aluminum oxide coating which is tough to remove. What area do you live in?
