Reviews from Sweeten Renovators
Read what people have to say about working with the general contractors in our network and renovating with Sweeten by their side.
We could not be more thrilled with our gut renovated master bathroom, thanks to the impeccable work of this team.
Katie R. from Brooklyn, NYView project
There are a ton of moving parts in a renovation, particularly a gut renovation such as ours. So when there was an unexpected challenge/error, it was resolved quickly, without hesitation and without sacrificing quality of work.
Cartier S. from Brooklyn, NYView project
There were no great surprises to our project but there are always little unexpected details and Eric had a solution for every one.
Nate A. from Suffolk, NYView project
It was an easy and painless experience working with them. Gary and his team made what I thought would be a daunting project, very manageable!
Ying L. from New York, NYView project
Alfonso is incredibly thorough. He's a problem solver. If you have a concern about something he'll make it right.
Joel H. from Fairfield, CTView project
After hearing horror stories of renovations gone wrong and this being our first renovation, we interviewed a lot of general contractors before feeling comfortable and moving forward....we ultimately created the wonderful space we dreamed of raising our family in.
Idalee T. from Brooklyn, NYView project
I don’t have enough words to communicate just how seamless this process was.
Deeksha G. from New York, NYView project
He was able to make adjustments and give us great ideas to make our room even better than we imagined. We could always reach him via phone, text or email, and his team was courteous, friendly and easy to talk to on-site. We are loving our new room!
Cristiana M. from Bergen, NJView project
It was our first ever experience renovating and Kris was helpful and communicative throughout the entire process. He helped weigh in on everything from design to materials and was extremely knowledgeable--all while staying on budget and on time.
Casey M. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Communicative and responsive. Always looking for a solution to the inevitable bumps in the road. Honest and straightforward. He is a no-drama kind of guy, which we found most helpful.
Tom S. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Because this was my first renovation, I was a complete novice to the process. I'm grateful for Sweeten because they gave me the confidence I needed to get started.
Matt C. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Erion was so easy to work with and made things stress-free on everything from dealing with the unexpected delays and permits to coordinating a time to receive a bathtub delivery. The bathroom turned out better than I could have hoped and I am so thankful for the successful renovation I had.
Christine Y. from New York, NYView project
Marc was incredibly responsive throughout the whole process. After completion of the work, Marc made certain that everything was correct, and that any issues were taken care of immediately.
Jacob S. from New York, NYView project
It makes something that has the potential of being very stressful much, much easier. This was not our first renovation, so we speak from experience. We recommend them without any reservations.
Ana L. from New York, NYView project
My husband and I were kind of all over the place about what we wanted, and he did a fantastic job of listening, proposing creative options, and then patiently letting us decide. He was honest about the budget and timeline, and if we ever asked for anything that would really increase cost, he sat us down and walked us through how much over budget it might take us.
Courtney R. from Brooklyn, NYView project
At the risk of sounding cliche I have to say that my experience with Eli and the rest of his crew was wonderful.
Rosalind W. from Brooklyn, NYView project
His team was clean, precise, and thorough. Comes prepared to talk shop, to offer suggestions, and will work with you to come to a reasonable solution. Really excellent quality work.
Arthur L. from New York, NYView project
We couldn’t be happier with the end result of our apartment renovation. It’s an amazing feeling to come off the busy streets of New York City and enter our new home that is beautiful, serene, and supremely comfortable, and have space to entertain or host guests....Sweeten made this all possible.
Joel D. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Sweeten made it easy to communicate our vision to contractors.
Blaise C. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Their communication-level and attention to detail were really appreciated. The project came-in on time and stuck to the fixed-priced budget.
Ryan H. from New York, NYView project
Their team successfully dealt with my very strict coop board and building super. They kept their cool and got the job done.
Mary Ann G. from New York, NYView project
We were renovating with a new baby and Eric was extremely respectful and considerate of our situation. He was extra careful to clean up all the dust. He also managed our grumpy super perfectly, so much that our super stopped me the other day to compliment me on how well Eric had done his work.
Margaret G. from Brooklyn, NYView project
The quality of the work is phenomenal, and he was very patient and helpful with our decisions.
Ellen S. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Steve and his team were responsive and got to work right away. They always showed up and were willing to talk through difficult hurdles in the way of getting the project done. Their team of workers was always professional and communicative. Unlike other contractors they were there to get the job done.
Lexi B. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Ours is a 1920s co-op so there were plumbing challenges and they worked with the building to fix it and kept me in the loop. They kept very good relationships with the building, which really helped smooth things along.
Elinor E. from Brooklyn, NYView project
This was a great first-time renovating experience and we are so happy in our new home!
Sophia L. from New York, NYView project
Their crew is stellar. The GC, designer, plumber, carpenter, electricians are all highly professional and work hard to get the job done right. We were very pleased that all of the trades who came in had the same work ethic and high quality expectations as the core staff.
Tara D. from Bronx, NYView project
Not only is his work fabulous but he was very conscious of staying within my budget. Also, I appreciated that he made sure that I was without a functioning kitchen for as little time as possible.
Kate S. from Hudson, NJView project
We had a vision of what we wanted the space to look like, and they were able to turn it into reality. We honestly couldn't be happier with the outcome of our new kitchen.
Christopher L. from Queens, NYView project
In all renovations there will be unforeseen problems. Barry and Keelin came up with solutions and were both very fair with pricing. They were always professional, courteous and worked within the buildings rules. The work they did was top notch.
Miguel B. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Claud was extremely transparent in his pricing. The quality of work exceptional. All of his staff were exemplary. Any time we encountered issues he resolved them quickly and satisfactorily. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Alicia H. from Brooklyn, NYView project
There are almost always hiccups in NYC because of the multiple codes and co-op regulations, and Bob was able to help us through these all with aplomb.
Andrew U. from Brooklyn, NYView project
As with many of the older buildings in New York City, our apartment had many surprises; un-level floors, leaking pipes, etc. Donato took the extra time needed to remeasure, refit, bend, cut, find replacement parts, whatever necessary to get the job done , and most importantly in a way that we would be happy with the final product.
Vitoria H. from Brooklyn, NYView project
We were lucky to find a contractor who had the level of workmanship that met my high standards. He was courteous, professional and punctual.
Whitney B. from Queens, NYView project
I have to thank Sweeten for introducing me to one of the best contractors I have ever worked with in NYC. I have lived here for over 30 years and done many renovation projects but I have never worked with any group that was so well organized and on top of a renovation.
Virginia A. from New York, NYView project
Bobby was a perfect find for someone like me (overwhelmed and a total novice at the whole renovation process!). There were no major hiccups and Bobby helped me control costs often making cost-saving recommendations.
Rima R. from Brooklyn, NYView project
This is our first apartment and first renovation, and Andrey was so great to us throughout the process. As clients, we were honestly probably difficult clients to have since we were picky at times, but Andrey and his team were flexible and responsive to our needs.
Amy W. from Brooklyn, NYView project
He is a really honest and straightforward contractor. He was transparent, explained everything, made changes where necessary, explained issues that came up (as they do in 100 year old buildings), developed solutions, and kept to his timeline.
Sandy F. from New York, NYView project
We are so, so happy with our new kitchen! Working with Darwin and his team was fantastic. They did a great job translating our dream into reality, and were just incredibly nice to boot.
Matthew S. from Brooklyn, NYView project
All of their work is excellent. I have a friend who is a commercial contractor. He came by one day to see how my project was going and was very impressed with what he saw.
Bill L. from Queens, NYView project
Sweeten connected me with an awesome, smart, and honest contractor.
Sanaya K. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Darwin was a pleasure to work with throughout our process. He arrived on time everyday, was always reachable, and finished each part of our project quickly. A few problems arose during our renovation that caused some concern. Each time Darwin helped us navigate through the problem.
Eric B. from New York, NYView project
William did such an amazing job with our kitchen project! He and his team understood our design from the very start, and were incredibly easy to communicate with, always professional and quick to reply. I was also really happy with the quality of their work, down to the last little detail.
Ainsley H. from Brooklyn, NYView project
I am still in awe of my new kitchen and how much it improves the apartment and my quality of life. It is even better than I imagined it would be.
Viju S. from Brooklyn, NYView project
It sounds like a simple thing, but Donato loves his work. He will always choose the technique or take the time to do something beautifully instead of simply competently. He seemed to be as excited as we were when the project came together, with so many elements and materials and colors and finishes finally could be seen as forming a whole.
Sandy M. from Brooklyn, NYView project
Camille exceeded our expectations, providing valuable support, explanation, and creative solutions through the process. He had fantastic ideas--we could tell that he loves designing and working with clients to marry their style with his knowledge and sensibility. No detail escapes his notice and attention!
Cat I. from Brooklyn, NYView project
They handle the management of the entire renovation process extremely well which was invaluable for renovation novices such as ourselves!
Sarah K. from Queens, NYView project
Sweeten did a really great job of helping us take this on when we needed a little hand-holding.
Claudia C. from Brooklyn, NYView project
The end result was more than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend.
Stacey K. from Queens, NYView project
Aleks was great to work with, he was always very clear and upfront and his crew were really nice as well.
Kristen A. from New York, NYView project
