How it works

How to bring your renovation to life with Sweeten

STEP 1

Tell us about the renovation you’re planning, using our project questionnaire. We’ll ask for your project scope, timeline, and budget. This helps us curate the perfect contractor list.

Sweeten’s online tools help you clarify your project scope and align it with your budget.
STEP 2

After sharing your project details, you’ll get a shortlist of Sweeten-vetted general contractors, matched to you based on your unique project criteria.

Our team has diligently pre-screened every contractor in our network for you.
STEP 3

Evaluate your matched contractors’ profiles, portfolios, and customer reviews. Choose which ones you’d like to bid on your project. Aim for 3-5 contractors.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can decline your matches and request new ones from a Sweeten matchmaker.

Get your competitive bids

STEP 4

Set up a separate meeting with each contractor to review your project goals on site. They’ll then prepare a bid, or “estimate.” Some contractors prefer to start with a quick call.

Use Sweeten’s tools for scheduling and messaging, or to host virtual site visits by video with your contractors.
STEP 5

When you’ve received your bids, it’s decision time. Review each estimate for the total cost, and for what’s included—or excluded. Contractors prepare estimates differently.

Take advantage of a free bid-leveling call with a Sweeten renovation specialist. Their expertise can help you make the most informed choice.

Renovate fearlessly

STEP 6

Negotiate a final contract with your chosen general contractor. Make it official on Sweeten by uploading your signed contract, or sign electronically with our Docusign integration.

Signing with Sweeten automatically grants you Renovation Financial Protection with coverage up to $50,000, for total peace of mind.

STEP 7

Here’s where the magic happens! Your contractor will guide you through construction.

Sweeten’s team is dedicated to your renovation’s success. We’re always here and happy to offer guidance if you need it.
