Manders Decorating Company is a family
owned and operated business; founded over 75 years ago. This Washington, D.C.
based company developed its niche by supplying itsí market area with
quality paint and re-paint with a reputable contractor, using quality
material and delivering 110% of contract responsibility.
The Manders story began in the 1930ís by Logan Manders, who
specialized in the quality painting of the interior and exterior of
residential homes. Working diligently, Mr. Manders developed a
reputation of affording his customers valuable service at a
competitive cost. His business grew via word of mouth advertising and
the knowledge that relying on Logan Manders was a guarantee of
receiving value for your dollar without sacrificing quality.
In the mid 1950ís, Norman Manders, Sr. joined his father, establishing
the foundation for what became the family business. Norman Manders
recognized that the Washington Metropolitan Area was becoming a
rapidly growing market, with real estate growth outpacing most other
markets in the United States. He re-directed his efforts by aligning
himself with ownership of multi-family housing and fulfilling their
needs to turn vacant units around with the least amount of down time.
The business continued itsí growth by expanding to small commercial
endeavors by meeting the needs of a growing market and client demands.
In the mid 1970ís, the third generation joined the firm. William
(Bill) Manders and his brother Michael (Mike) Manders recognized that
the market their father had identified earlier was continuing to grow
at an even faster pace and that the needs to meet an expanding
Multi-Family, Commercial and Office Building market in the Washington
Metropolitan Area was still viable. They re-focused the company long

the needs of this new market by partnering with general contracting
