When Mark Richman wanted an update to improve the value of his Boca Raton, Fla., home, he sought a contractor who could design and install a brick driveway and front walkway with unique design.

Richman used his Angie’s List membership to find and interview several highly rated contractors. He discovered his perfect match with Javier Baptista, owner of Terra Tiles & Pavers in Boca Raton.

“We were tired of looking at the old asphalt driveway,” Richman says. “Our old driveway had no particular shape. We requested rounded corners and added some walkway space.”

To achieve the look desired, Richman enlisted Baptista’s design skills. “Javier was not just the owner, but he’s also an engineer,” he says. “We presented the design to them and they made it look great! We got estimates and spoke with many other vendors. Not one of those other companies’ representatives compared to the level of knowledge and professionalism we experienced with Javier.”

Richman says the pavers add a touch of class that lead up to the home’s front door.

He and his wife Davi had ideas and a rough design for their project before hiring Terra Tiles, but leaned on Baptista to help bring their vision to reality. They appreciated his detail-oriented nature and creative assistance.

“He followed up every call or question with amazing diligence,” Richman says. “My wife and I had many little custom design requests during the project, and each time, they came through for us. The quality of the work is outstanding, and the driveway and walkway look amazing.”

Since the driveway project, the Richmans decided to also make improvements to the outdoor living space in their backyard.

“We are calling them back to do our pool deck,” he says. “I have complete faith in Terra Tiles & Pavers.”
