  • “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.”

    Andrew D. from Sunnyside, Queens, NY
  • “This was a great service and I’m so happy I used it. The bathrooms turned out absolutely beautiful and were exactly what I wanted. But more than anything, I found a supportive and honest contractor.”

    Marek B. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA
  • “Very intuitive contractor matching platform. Provides visibility into past work and an idea of rates. I was able to source 4 contractors in a few days with Sweeten and was started on my project quickly.”

    Hagan R. from Buckhead, Atlanta, GA
  • “Our Sweeten contractor did a great job renovating two bathrooms and our living room. He started on time. He was in constant communication with us. They finished on time. And the end result was exactly as we had hoped. We are very pleased!”

    Stephen R., Lakeview, Chicago, IL
  • “So happy that Sweeten was recommended to me by a friend. Sweeten connected me with an excellent contractor and it was nice to know that they were there for me if I should need any support with the project.”

    Julie P. from Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, NY
  • “I definitely liked working with Sweeten, particularly at the start of the reno process. Finding a dependable contractor is normally a long, arduous process. There are many phone calls and emails and people just vanishing after you talk to them. Contractors can be super flaky. Using Sweeten as a sort of "agency" for contractors was SO helpful and definitely reduced my stress level from the start. We received quite a few recommendations, met with all of them, and ultimately found our contractor. We were very happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend Sweeten to others.”

    Saima S. from Inglewood, CA
  • “Sweeten was really helpful — we wouldn't have found our contractor without them, and the bid-leveling call was absolutely essential for us.”

    Dara R. from Washington Heights, New York, NY
  • “Start with Sweeten to help pick reputable contractors. They do the initial leg work for you. They are a real time saver.”

    Denise H. from Santa Clarita, CA
  • “Sweeten provides a modern way to connect with contractors and greatly reduces the stress involved in this process. They offer to work with clients through the curse of their projects and act as a 3rd party to provide guidance on cost, time, scope, etc. including bid reviews. The website was very straightforward to use.”

    Richard, A. from Flatlands, Brooklyn, NY
  • “Could not have made the process faster / smoother!”

    Jeffrey R. from Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY
  • “Great experience! Helpful customer service, answered any questions and found us a great match!”

    Amanda C. from Hoboken, NJ
  • “I enjoyed the contractor matching process and felt it streamlined what can be an overwhelming process.”

    Adriana P. from Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY
  • “Overall great experience because Sweeten paired us with a great contractor.”

    Cassandra S. from Long Beach, CA
  • “As a first time renovator in New York, I had no clue where to start and how to manage the process. Sweeten was there to help me compare the bids, and answering my questions when the contractor and the building management got into a dispute. I'm glad to have professionals I could turn to, instead of venting to friends and family!”

    Shanfan H. from Upper West Side, New York, NY
  • “I don’t think we would have found our contractor without Sweeten and he was a perfect fit for our project.”

    Ezekiel H. from Kalorama, Washington, DC
  • “There are a lot of scam "contractors" out there, especially in NYC. Sweeten helped me find someone legit that allowed me to not worry and waste time with unlicensed or fake identity people. This was especially important for me because I live in a Coop and all paperwork has to be buttoned up.”

    Andrew W. from Kew Gardens, Queens, NY
  • “Very helpful for finding and comparing contractors.”

    Mike H. from Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY
  • “Sweeten was a surprisingly easy, reliable, effective, and not pushy way to find a great contractor for our renovation. And not to mention free! They didn’t bother us with annoying emails, only helpful suggestions and advice, along the way. We highly recommend Sweeten to everyone we know!”

    Nicole B. from Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY
  • “I really liked how Sweeten made the process of vetting licensed contractors easy for me. I felt confident knowing that I wasn't hiring a GC with forged credentials or wasn't qualified. This service is very valuable especially to first-time renovators like me.”

    Jennifer M. from Jersey City, NJ
  • “The whole process with Sweeten has been incredibly easy, and I've felt supported the whole time. This was my very first design project on my own, and I honestly don't know how I would have otherwise found such a great builder. My career started out on the right foot (and I learned SO MUCH) because of Sweeten's service. Thank you!”

    Hilary T. from Ridgefield, CT
  • “Sweeten made choosing a trusted contractor feel easy and less daunting. I also appreciated the support when I had questions or concerns. I was able to be matched with a great contractor who did an amazing job on my renovation.”

    Julia M. from Somerset, NJ
  • “Sweeten provides a well vetted list of contractors.  Everyone who I interviewed for the job would have been a good candidate.”

    Danielle K. from Playa Vista, Los Angeles, CA
  • “Wonderful service! Was easy to use and found an amazing contractor with great references. Not only did we find our contractor but Sweeten provided an account person to check in and make sure everything was going well throughout the duration of the project. For a couple working on their first renovation we could not be more grateful to have such a terrific support system.”

    Becky K. from Hudson, NJ
  • “Contractor was so great that I didn’t need Sweeten to get involved but made me feel better knowing they were there as a backup if any issues did arise.”

    Jesse L. from Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY
  • “It was great to work with Sweeten. They provided excellent choices, and were honest with us when we asked questions. We recommend them for others like us with no previous experience with NYC renovations.”

    Maggie T. from Murray Hill, New York, NY
  • “Sweeten was the route to finding a contractor we liked, whereas usually you may just be happy to get a contractor with a pulse. So choice?? That's a luxury. I liked all the ones who came to look at our place and would use Sweeten again in a heart beat.”

    Kojo C. from Jefferson Park, Chicago, IL

  • “Great! I really appreciate the check-ins and the BID-leveling phone call!”

    Elisabeth V. from Bronx Park, Bronx, NY
  • “They were very helpful in recommending appropriate firms for our project and in validating our choice after the bids were in. They checked in frequently, and fortunately we did not need them to help after the product was underway.”

    John S. from Upper East Side, New York, NY
  • “It was great to know that Sweeten was here to help at each step of the way.”
