WHAT IF I WANT TO COMPLETELY CHANGE THE COLOR OF MY STAINED WOOD HOME?

Short answer. "No problem. We can make suggestions."
Long Answer. Changing the color of stain is difficult and somewhat problematic if the stain is transparent. the original stain color will still be present with the new stain providing another tone. It's then the 2 tones combined that you see applied. So the trick to selecting the right stain is to think about the additive properties of new color.
An example is if the house is currently a pine gold color, and you want a green final look, then you would add a slightly blue stain for the result. Yellow and Blue make Green.
Another example we complete often is adding two stain colors on a house for the graining and multiple effect of seeing multiple colors. Staining a house white first and then with a charcoal will result in a light grey or weathered stain.
