COTUIT, MA November 27, 2009-The Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (EM NARI) presented the prestigious CotY Gold Award to Capizzi Home Improvement during the Evening of Excellence dinner held at the Westin Waltham on November 4th. Capizzi Home Improvement received the award in the category “Entire House Remodel” over $500,000.”
The winning project, owned by Mr. Capizzi, took a 1950s 1,408 sq. ft., three-bedroom, four-bath, summer cottage and transformed it into a 3,079 sq. ft., four-bedroom, five-bath, beach home with multiple decks, a widow’s walk, 360° views, and new landscaping. To maintain its “old Cape Cod charm,” the original Art Deco style bathrooms and pine paneling were retained.
The CotY Awards recognize exceptional remodeling projects completed over the past year. Each entry is comprised of “before and after” project shots and detailed project descriptions. The entries are judged on functionality, problem solving, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation. An impartial panel of judges composed of industry experts then selects the winners.
“It is a great honor to receive this award and to be recognized by our peers,” said Tom Capizzi Jr. , president of Capizzi Home Improvement. “Receiving this award is a validation of our commitment to quality craftsmanship, professional ethics and excellent customer service. Not just my commitment, but the commitment of everyone in our company!”

WHOLE-HOUSE REMODELING ON CRAIGVILLE BEACH ROAD
(SITS ON CRAIGVILLE PENINSULA BETWEEN OCEAN AND RIVER)
A whole house remodeling project was exactly what our home needed in order to capitalize on its ocean and river front environment. Our 1,408 square foot, 1950’s, three-bedroom, four-bath, summer cottage was transformed into a 3,079 square foot, four-bedroom, five-bath, beach home with multiple decks, a widow’s walk, 360° views, and new landscaping.
We renovated the entire interior, including new flooring, removal of numerous “built-ins” to create an open floor plan, creation of a dining room leading to the addition, and a custom kitchen. Additionally, we custom-built a fireplace mantle and updated the lighting. To maintain its “Old Cape Cod” charm, we kept original art-deco style.
The master suite was designed to take advantage of the stunning river views; the master bath has a glass enclosed steam shower, hot tub, and custom tile.
The 30 x 20 great-room boasts 360° ocean and river views, five sliders that lead to three wrap-around decks and a balcony, and a spiral staircase leading to the new immense widow’s walk, which towers over the Craigville Beach peninsula and neighboring roof tops.
Exterior remodeling includes bleached shingle siding, roofing, custom wood shutters, and a stone stoop. Extensive landscaping completes the transformation.
