In honor of Women’s History month, Sweeten is spotlighting women 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.

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 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.

Entire homes and single homes are Emily and Cristhian’s specialties. They oversee a team of expert craftsmen whose objective is to deliver high-quality construction services to Suffolk County residents. They strive 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. See Emily’s reviews and work.

Build. Restore. Renovate. Those are the three words that sum up Sweeten general contractor Tara’s construction firm’s offerings. With more than 50 years of contracting experience combined, Tara and her partners work in the Houston area on commercial, residential, and multi-family projects. “We are small enough to listen and big enough to deliver,” says Tara. And her clients agree, often leaving five-star reviews. See Tara’s reviews and work.


Sweeten General Contractor Cynthia | Chicago, IL

General contractor Cynthia works on all sorts of projects, ranging in budget levels—from $5,000 to $140,000. She works just as hard on the smaller jobs as she does on the whole-home renovations because she “doesn’t base [my] work on the dollar value.” She also can fix others’ mistakes. She was able to come in and fix another contractor’s mistakes for one client, who was so please with her work that he made her the preferred vendor for Hudson Homes in Bolingbrook, IL. “Everyone raves about her,” her client says. See Cynthia’s reviews and work.
