  • “I can't recommend our GC and her team enough. Our new kitchen is everything we wanted it to be. The build is impeccable–down to the small details. We've been using it for more than a month now, and I haven't found anything that I wish was done differently.”

    Michael D., Jackson Heights
  • “Sweeten made it very convenient to find qualified general contractors for us as first-time renovators!”

    Parinda D., Astoria
  • “This was my second project with Sweeten, and I continue to be impressed with how attentive the staff is throughout the project. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for any additional renovation work and would definitely recommend them.”

    Eric R., Sunnyside
  • “The team completed the job around stretched timelines. They efficiently dealt around Covid-19 delays and unexpected problems. They provided good suggestions on materials and showed great attention to details. My apartment and kitchen look perfect!”

    Nataliya B., Long Island City
  • “Our contractor's leadership and team were wonderful. Communication was timely and consistent via WhatsApp. He explained every step of the way and answered all my questions. The finished product is absolutely gorgeous. I am agog at how perfect the tilework is—they truly considered every detail. The glass pro he brought in for my mirror and shower wall/door was fantastic. Clean up after the job was spotless. They even re-painted the walls in the through area that got scuffed during the work even though they weren't in the bathroom. Best contractor experience I've ever had. I also so appreciated Sweeten's clearinghouse process. Thank you so much.”

    Tavia K., Woodside
  • “Sweeten did an excellent job starting us in the right direction and getting our renovation started off right, as well as walking us through the contract process. Very happy with the helpful service and professionalism.”

What is a general contractor?

The general contractor is in charge of a major remodeling project in Queens. Overseeing the entire process, from planning and permitting to demolition and through construction, they will work directly with you and their team subcontractors. If other construction professionals are needed, your contractor will also collaborate with architects, designers, expediters, or engineers.

They will work with you to get necessary approvals for your remodeling project, which can be a common stumbling block during the early stages of a renovation. The process is efficiently handled by an experienced general contractor who has renovated projects like yours from concept to completion. Your Sweeten general contractor in Queens will deliver high-quality results on time without exceeding the budget. Learn more about what it takes when hiring one including process and costs:
