If you’ve been through a home renovation, you know how stressful it can be. Hiring the right people is key to a successful project, which is a stressful task in and of itself! Introducing Sweeten: a free service that matches renovating homeowners to a network of highly screened general contractors. (Read more about the stunning Brooklyn kitchen pictured above, a Sweeten project.)
The first thing you’ll do is post your renovation project on Sweeten’s website, sharing details about what you want to do to which space, your budget, location and style. A Sweeten matchmaker (yes, that’s an actual job title) will personally match and send you the profiles of 3-5 general contractors who have experience that parallels your project. You choose which contractors you’d like to meet and request bids from. Once you receive the bids, you compare them –Sweeten can help you evaluate–and then you hire your contractor. You even get a personal Sweeten advisor to support you from start to completion, answering questions and making sure things go smoothly. (The service is free to renovators; it’s the contractors who pay the company a small commission when they’re hired.)
Sweeten projects range from $15k bathroom makeovers to multimillion-dollar-house gut renovations. And all of their contractors meet the “Sweeten standard”—a rigorous screening process based on the founders’ decades of experience in architecture and construction. The service has been hailed as a “Renovation Game-Changer” by Domino and “Best Contractor Locator” by New York Magazine; projects are regularly featured on their blog and in design media, including The New York Times.
Sweeten services are available in the five boroughs as well as the Greater New York City area including Westchester, Nassau, Suffolk and Fairfield counties plus Hudson, Essex and Bergen counties in New Jersey.
Their mission is to help you complete your dream home projects, and to enjoy the process as much as the results! To get started, visit www.sweeten.com today.
