For Women’s History Month, Sweeten is highlighting women-owned and women-operated general contracting firms in our network.
These skilled women contractors have broken barriers while making headway to close the gender gap in the industry. With years of experience in general contracting, these firms regularly help homeowners with all types of remodeling projects—from kitchen and bath to full-home renovations.
Sweeten matches home renovation projects with vetted general contractors, offering advice, support, and up to $50,000 in renovation financial protection—for free.
In Part 4 of a five-part series, we highlight women-led firms with deep backgrounds and industry knowledge to make your home dreams a reality.
Sweeten General Contractor Shannon | Los Angeles
With the natural disasters often affecting Los Angeles homes, Sweeten general contractor Shannon and her team have become skilled in helping clients with their property needs, insurance claims, and expediting permits for rebuilds after fires and earthquakes. Shannon is known also for her custom, high-end design and construction as well as real estate consultations. With over 30 years of experience, Shannon carefully handpicks the interior and landscape designers and architects that work for her. See Shannon’s reviews and work.
Sweeten General Contractor Kimberly | Atlanta
The owner of a successful design-build firm in Atlanta, general contractor Kimberly describes her company as a “one-stop design shop.” Her team has access to a network of contractors, architects, tradesmen, and tradeswomen. They specialize in commercial build-outs as well as full home remodels. Kimberly says her mission is to “join forces with you to inspire, design, and use our passion for the industry to build your vision into reality.” See Kimberly’s reviews and work.
Sweeten General Contractor Vita | Long Island, NY
Vita is the designer, and her husband, Jerry, is the contractor—forming a general contracting team that delivers beautiful form and efficient functionality. Vita is both a certified kitchen and bath designer and Jerry is a certified remodeler. When you consult with Vita, you begin with a unique digital design that helps show how the finished project may look. From there, Vita and her team handle it all—sourcing and ordering materials, while managing construction and installation. See Vita’s reviews and work.
Sweeten General Contractor Sara | Los Angeles
Sweeten general contractor Sara credits team spirit for her company’s success. She has been able to expand, setting up offices in Los Angeles and San Jose. With these two locations, she reaches 20 counties across California. Her company handles projects ranging from new construction and entire home remodels to smaller jobs in apartments and co-ops. When asked what separates her business from other general contracting firms, she said “innovations such as our On-time Completion Guarantee and Lifetime Maintenance Plan.” See Sara’s reviews and work.
Sweeten General Contractor Megan | Brooklyn, NY
Named one of Sweeten’s best contracting firms in 2019, Megan’s company focuses its full-service design and build services in and around New York City.
