A Word About Bob Perez, My Mentor – Pat Hinchcliff

“I was fortunate to have run into Bob while working for a general contractor in my earlier years in construction. Bob showed me the ropes of the tile world. He showed me the right way to install tile, not only so it will last, but so that it will look beautiful as well. Bob is a very creative person, with an eye for details, and has always had a passion for his tile work. He has tiled some very beautiful rooms in his career.

I am proud to say, Bob’s passion and desire to create beautiful tile work has been passed on to me. I intend to continue his legacy and try to make him proud for the gift he given to me. It was a great pleasure to work along side Bob and to learn from him.”

Sincerely, Thank you Bob.
