Aleks and his team are professional, honest, transparent, and work with integrity. We, like many, have had terrible experiences with renovations and contractors before, which is what turned us to Sweeten. Our renovation was extensive- requiring a full DOB alteration permit and involved all new electrical, plumbing, floors, and finishes. There was full cost-transparency and the project was generally on-time and on-budget. From the very beginning, in developing a scope of work and contract, to completing multiple final punch lists, Aleks was patient in addressing our 100's of questions, ideas and took our concerns seriously. His spreadsheets and project management tools were helpful to keep us informed, and we were able to effectively communicate with him in detail via email. Aleks usually checked-in on the work multiple times a week. He accommodated our busy working schedules with weekend and late-night calls as needed to go over electrical plans, concerns and the like. In particular, Aleks helped us handle a very difficult issue we had with our coop that risked derailing the entire renovation. In addition, the foreman he assigned to our renovation was excellent and took great pride in the work and managed the crew and tasks with skill. Overall, Aleks was a pleasure to work with and we appreciate all that went into our new home. They have a warranty for 3 years on the their work, and we know that if anything were to come up that we would be able to continue to count on Aleks. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Aleks and his team.
