In honor of Women’s History month, we are spotlighting women general contractors in the general contracting field. These Sweeten contractors are leading the charge and closing the gender gap.

With years of experience under their belts, their firms include experts who handle a myriad of projects—from residential room remodels and full-home renovations to commercial work.

In the last of a five-part series, we feature women contractors who have the skills and industry knowledge to make your home-sweet-home a reality.

They oversee a team of expert craftsmen whose objective is to deliver high-quality construction services to Suffolk County residents. They aim to stay on budget and on time for each and every project. “Their biggest strength is the quality of work,” says one client. Excellent communication was also a characteristic that was noted. This client subsequently hired the firm for other projects on his rental homes. Read more of general contractor Emily’s reviews and work.
