  • “Sweeten made things really simple and clear. If you're overwhelmed with choosing a contractor, we would definitely recommend using this as a resource.”

    Kara C., Brooklyn Heights
  • “Our GC and his team far exceeded my expectations. This was my first renovation project, and I'd heard horror stories. The folks were all kind, efficient, and communicative. They even won over my hard-to-please (read: crotchety) neighbors.”

    David G., Park Slope
  • “I enjoyed the contractor matching process and felt it streamlined what can be an overwhelming process.”

    Adriana P., Flatbush
  • “It was really great to be able to bid out the project with a number of contractors, all very professional and easy. I liked that you have a bunch of examples in the Clinton Hill Coops, where we are.”

    Alexandra W., Clinton Hill
  • “Mark was very flexible with changes as we were in mid process and had additional ideas or thoughts that we wanted to implement. He is always reachable, and very friendly. In addition, Mark has a wide network of vendors that really helped us when we were redoing and outfitting our kitchen and bathrooms.”

    Lee H., Red Hook
  • “I liked knowing that Sweeten had my back! Thank you!”

    Jason W., Crown Heights
  • “There were so many first time issues that we had to deal with but we worked through them all as the next thing came along. I highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a professional job and fair price.”

    Marianna T., Williamsburg
  • “Supportive and attentive the whole way through. Even with understandable delays due to material shortages that have impacted construction, we were able to stick to a reasonable timeline in order to return our kitchen back to us. The demo and construction process was smooth, clean, and organized, and the crew was excellent to work with. We really appreciated how helpful the project manager was throughout—always responsive and ready to troubleshoot when we encountered needed adjustments along the way. Office team was great as well.”

    Hillary R., Kensington

What is a general contractor?

When you need a remodeling project in Brooklyn completed, your general contractor will manage everything from planning and permitting to construction. Your NYC contractor handles many responsibilities including managing their team’s subcontractors. They will also work with other construction professionals required for the project such as architects, designers, expediters, and engineers.

When you’re looking to remodel your home, the last thing on your mind is navigating through city and board approvals. Luckily, Sweeten can connect you to top firms in the area who can ensure that projects go off without a hitch from start to finish. Your Sweeten general contractor in Brooklyn can help obtain approvals from condo or co-op boards or HOAs on remodeling plans for your home. Our team will work alongside each client throughout their entire renovation process. Homeowners will want the expertise of a GC familiar with the paperwork, process, and costs in the borough.
