Matchmaker, Matchmaker: How to Find a Contractor, Thanks to Sweeten

December 4, 2020

Scouring the internet or meeting with countless recommendations from mutual friends to find the right contractor can be a miserable process. This is the problem Sweeten solves. It’s a company that works like a matchmaker, handpicking general contractors based on your project’s description (free of charge). Sweeten provides clients with a shortlist of contractors whom they trust and have previously vetted and then, as Sweeten says, “you can browse past work, read reviews, and get introduced to your favorites.” Throughout the renovation journey, Sweeten will check in to offer guidance and support. As a bonus, if you move forward with a Sweeten general contractor for your renovation, both you and Remodelista will receive a $250 Visa gift card as a thanks for working with Sweeten.

Here is a roundup of select kitchen renovations by Sweeten contractors.
