In honor of Women’s History Month, Sweeten is highlighting women-owned and women-operated general contracting businesses in our network.

These skilled and successful 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 remodels to full-home remodels.

Sweeten matches home renovation projects with vetted general contractors, offering advice, support, and up to $50,000 in renovation financial protection—for free.

In the first of a five-part series, we highlight women-led firms with the experience and industry knowledge to make your home dreams a reality.
