We called the company out for an additional bedroom we wanted to build. The man that came over, Ken, was not looking at my old space but envisioning the finished room. He knew exactly what needed to be done in every part of the floor it's on and spent time answering any questions we had. He never made us feel like we were bothersome with our inexperience and many questions about colors and closets and electricity. The job was done from beginning to end with every specification nothing less than perfection! Ken and Mr. Contractor is not just a construction, painting, slapping together a room type of business. At. All! Ken is an artist in his own right seeing beauty and potential where there are old spaces in need of renewal. Thank you for everything Mr. Contractor! Especially the way you treated our family. You're a class act a all the way! 5 STARS!
I had bad experiences with contractors in the past. I contacted mr Contractor and steve came out within one day of contacting the office for an estimate. He came out with over 2000 pictures of before and after pictures of work his family company completed. He wAs on time and spent an hour going over every detail of our deck we were interested in. His ideas were great and the price was about $900 over what we budgeted for the deck, but his knownledge and reputation of the company reassured me the job would be done to perfection. The crew came on time and worked straight through. A total of six days and the deck was done. Our neighbors loved it and had some work on their homes as well. If you want a professional job done hire mr contractor and ask for steve for your rep. They were awarded philly magazines best contractor in 2007 and have an A rating on angies list with a super service award in 2009 and an honor roll award in 2012. Also highly ranked with the BBB
I called mr contractor to give me an estimate on the outside of my home. Steve, the fourth generation of the company called me back 3 hours after I called in for my request for work. We had an appt set for the following day and he even confirmed the night before. I was very impressed because previous people i called half of them didnt even return my call or even show up. Mr contractors price came in a few hundred dollars more than the other co i called out but the explanation as to how the work was to be performed and the timeline of the job was way better than the other co who basically said we can change your siding and cover the windows with metal. I would highly reccomend mr contractor for anyone who is looking for a call back the same day and an estimate on the spot and a job done on time with a weeks notice as to when they ar going to start the work. Thanks to steve and the crew - Joe And Joey. I hope you guys the best and will be defenitley calling you for future work and passing on your name to my friends and family.
I was very happy with the work that Mr. Contractor did on my home. I recently inherited a home that needed a lot of work done. I remodeled the kitchen, 2 bathrooms, all the floors and trim. I even had a lot of electrical upgrades done (lights, switches, etc). Probably the biggest project was finishing the basement. From the start, the sales man was very polite and professional. I was given an ""accurate"" estimate (meaning it didn't change with bait & switch tactics). The crew that came to do the work was very clean, trustworthy and passionate about their work. I never had a problem with communication. My home came out amazing. I get nothing but compliments from friends and family. I have since recommended Mr. Contractor to everyone I know needing remodeling work. This is a great company and I had a great experience. I plan to hire them again during my next remodel project.
It wasn't easy to pick a contractor to remodel our kitchen. There are plenty to chose from in the phonebook and online. However, Mr. Contractor stuck out because of the volume of searched online and the positive reviews. I called for a free estimate and was impressed that someone came out that same day to look at my job. I was given an estimate on the spot with a promise that work would start in 2 weeks if I signed the contract. The price wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive. But the crew was clean, professional, on time and didn't play games with adding extra costs. The end result was rather impressive. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to get work done on their home. Thank you Mr. Contractor.
I had done a lot of careful research before picking Mr. Contractor to finish my basement and remodel my two bathrooms. I looked at Dunn & Bradstreet, BBB, and NARI for reviews. When I did some research on Google I came across many positive reviews on sites such as Yelp, Angie's List and Thumbtack. I have learned to become very cautious when handing over a lot of money to a contractor. You never know if they will be a "fly by night" type of service. I felt good about hiring a company that has been around for over 50 years. Anyhow the salesmen were great, the crew was amazing and even the secretary was a pleasure to deal with. My basement and bathrooms turned out spectacular. I highly recommend Mr. Contractor to anyone looking for a honest and highly skilled company to remodel your home.

I have read the reviews and researched Mr. Contractor. Thank goodness I did. I found that they have a very good standing with alot of business research sites. I needed a lot of work done and have been burnt by contractors before. I am so thankful that I hired them. They were courteous and punctual. They did an excelent job for me, I had roofing, plumbing, kitchen work and a new bathroom.The price they quoted was exactly what I paid. Their workers were resptectful, helpful and very efficient. They are highly recomended by me and I refered them to a few close friends and they too are extremely pleased with the service they recieved. I have also come to realize that ANYONE can wright a review weather or not they are true, so I was compeled to right this. You can email me and I'll respond, they are a great company to hire. No wonder they have been in business for 50 years!
Ps. At least I have seen their work cause they did my work for me. I do recomend highly. And if the other 2 reviews are true then why were they named by Philadelphia magazine as the Best Contractor in Philadelphia in 2007? I guess you can't please everyone, no matter how hard you try. Some people want something for nothing I guess.

I never got to see their work so I cant comment on that but If attitude and first impressions are any indicator of their future service and i tend to think it does i chose to leave them alone.
First thing I noticed was he seemed to not be that interested in the project. Now that's okay hes probably done this kind of job a million times but when you are in the service industry and you are about to put around 50 thousand of repair work in a contractors hands you wanna see some enthusiasm.
I asked him for any brochures he had on cabinet types and he said after I agree to sign his contract he would prove it
Is that the way it works? anyway he gave an estimate and the price sounded great. He wanted me to sign off on the spot for him to start working. I told him I needed to talk with my wife about this decision (50 thousand dollars)
and he immediately became borderline disrespectful. "" well look I gotta go! You go talk to your wife and call us when your ready"". If this is the guy they send out to represent their company I dont want to meet anybody else from Mr contractor. P.S. go check em out at the bureau

I never saw their work. They ignored several phone calls after seeing my project & professionally drawn plans and promising an offer. I'd understand if they did't care to bid on my job, but didn't have the guts to say as much?? Or just figured they couldn't pull enough bank out of me. Smart clients are the worst, eh?
