Where we came from
Mr. Contractor History
We have a very strong and proud history. Since 1949 the Spector family has been serving families throughout Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs. Today we are still expanding both in company presence and in family members. As a 4th generation family owned and operated business, we have become Philadelphia and Bucks County #1 full service contractor destination. Mr. Contractor has become a name you can trust and rely on. Having served more than 10,000 customers it is hard to find a home in the area that we haven’t once done work at. Our existence would not have been possible without the persistence and resilience of our 1st generation founder, Marty Spector.
Prior to 1949, Marty Spector was an employee of “Marty Franks Beverage” which sold and distributed soda. Marty’s success allowed him to interact with customers and familiarize himself with the Philadelphia area. It was from this business experience and those customer interactions that Marty decided to try his hand at other endeavors. Marty became involved in the sale of windows. This began the creation of “Mart Jalousie Manufacturing Company, Inc.” which specialized in aluminum windows. As business grew, Mart Jalousie Manufacturing Company purchased the production line of Air Master Manufacturing. Aluminum windows were very popular and in high demand at the time. Marty involved his sons, Allan and Harold, making this a 2nd generation business in what Marty always envisioned as a “family company”.
