EPS Featured on This Way on Bay

EPS was recently featured on hyperlocal Staten Island blog, This Way on Bay, in an article about EPS’ family tradition of historic renovations. In the article, owners Melissa and David Mazzei spoke about their current project, restoring the historic Pavilion on the Terrace:

If you’ve ever taken a drive or a stroll down Richmond Terrace on Staten Island, you may have gone by The Pavilion on the Terrace, which has been closed for 12 years. The building was first constructed as a residence in the year 1835 and then in 1965 started operating as a banquet hall until its eventual close in 2005. Since its closure, this historical treasure has been sitting and waiting for new life and that new life has come.

EPS Contracting, a Staten Island-based company, is currently rebuilding and renovating the property for owners Kecia & Devone and they have hopes to complete and be able to cater to their first customers by May of 2017. The property will be a 170 seat catering hall and restaurant. Operated by Melissa and David Mazzei, EPS is a second generation restoration company. Melissa and David grew up watching their father, Ettore Mazzei, restore a dozen historic projects over their lifetime. The process inspired them to start their own construction restoration company; EPS Contracting.

Advice For Flood Victims To Save Money Before Demolition


As the cleanup effort from Hurricane Sandy continues here in Staten Island, I’ve dispensed the same piece of advice to flood victims a number of times:

Plan your rebuild before you begin demolition.

Many victims under-estimate the cost of rebuilding, and demolish everything in their house when they don’t have to.  Take note of hard surface that can simply be cleaned. Bathrooms with tile floors don’t need to be removed, but when we arrive clients have already included them in the demolition without realizing this. Many of the surfaces in a bathroom can get wet without structural damage and can be salvaged.

Sub-floors are another item being needlessly demolished. When building a house, first you lay the foundation. Then you put sill and then joist the sub-floor. After that the walls are built, and so on. Aside from wasting money, removing a sub-floor can affect the structure of the home.

If you’re looking into a rebuild after a flood in the New York City area, contact us. We can take a look and assist in the planning to save you money and aggravation.
