People love renovating with us
“Very glad to have found Sweeten. As first-time homeowners and first-time renovators, it gave us a peace of mind that we would not have otherwise had before signing the contract.”
“Every element of our home was done with care and an attention to detail. Plus, the project came in close to budget and schedule. What more could we ask for?”
“Sweeten checked in regularly, but honestly it wasn't necessary I was in such great hands. The process was efficient and fair, couldn't be more pleased.”
“I appreciated being able to review and compare multiple bids with the Sweeten team, even bids that came from contractors *not* found on Sweeten. That was very helpful since it was our first time taking on a project of this size and scope.”
“It was great to be able to talk through everything with a Sweeten professional and get a curated list. I doubt we’d have found our contractor on our own, and I’m so glad we did.”
“Great tool to penetrate the arcane world of contractors. I interviewed a total of six contractors - one from a recommendation, two from Googling around and three from Sweeten. Sweeten made the process a lot easier, and the reviews are extremely helpful in vetting.”
“Throughout the renovation process, our Sweeten contractor was a reliable asset. He found a solution to every snag and never said no to a request. He was always available to answer questions and we felt at every step that his goal was to make us happy.”
“My experience with Sweeten was wonderful from the initial site visit to the phone call I received from their rep and the selection process to end of the project.”
“Thank you for providing us with a Gem of a contractor. We should write a book that includes all the details on this amazing experience. Thank you Sweeten staff.”
“We were very pleased with the quality of service and attention to detail from Sweeten. We were also impressed with the consistent quality of contractors that Sweeten provided, and the affordability as well. Overall, we are very glad we chose Sweeten.”
