Article from the Best of Philly Magazine (Issue 8/2007 / Page 196):

Four generations of the Spector family have been remodeling homes in the Northeast and beyond for more than half a century. They're not fancy folks (if you want fancy, hire a Main Line contractor), but Mr. Contractor calls back right away, uses primo building materials, prices fairly, and guarantees every last nail.

Mr. Contractor, Inc. insider tip: Mr. Contractor's Ken Spector says they're least busy between January and April, when most folks are paying off post-holiday bills and haven't yet gotten their tax refunds.

    I've finally found someone I can count on to be dependable, fair and doing exceptional work. They replaced Frech doors to our patio when I couldn't get anyone else willing to do the job. They also replaced rotted woodwork around our front door and replaced some shutters. I highly recommend Mr. Contractor, They are our go-to company for needed work.

    Steve wasn't the least expensive contractor, but he did quality work and he was one time. You could count on him to keep his word, and he worked well with my tenants. He was also great when the project spanned multiple issues. I tried cheaper, it was seldom worth it.

    We only use Mr. Contractor. We have been working with Kenny for 7 years now and on 2 houses. He is reliable, efficient, and does high quality work. We have done extensive renovations on our second house and would not have trusted anyone else.

    I thank Barry & his crew for doing a beautiful job on my front porch, They turned it into a beautiful new living space for my wife & I. This is the 3rd job I've had done by Mr. Contractor. Never have had a problem or compliant. They do what you ask for in a reasonable amount of time. When the job is done it's done. No need for comebacks. Excellent company to have your work done by.

    I am so happy with Mr. Contractor... This is a good company that lives up to its reputation. I called many contractors before picking this company to remodel my home. Many contractors didn't call me back and those that did quoted me very high prices and showed very little interest. Mr. Contractor has been polite and professional since the start. I was impressed with the sales team and the crew that did the work. I had several rooms in my home completely redone with custom shelves, molding and hardwood floors installed. I was so happy with Mr. Contractor that I even hired them a 2nd time to build my deck and fence. I highly recommend this company if you want the work done well and on time. It is hard to find a good contractor these days.

    We do appreciate your gratitude. As always we do our best for our customers.

    I had Ken and Steven Spector from Mr. Contractor, Inc. come to my home and remodel my kitchen and perform some miscellaneous work throughout my home. I have to say that I was completely impressed with how smooth and quick everything went. There was no detail that wasn't addressed. The crew showed up everyday ready to work and were completely professional. I have a mother living with me and she noticed how respectful the crew was and how clean they would leave the home. I plan to have Mr. Contractor come to my home to do more work in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Contractor, Inc and have told everyone I know about them. Thank you so much Mr. Contractor!
