Belmonte Builders Earns 4 CRBRA “Best in Building Awards”

May 2015 – Clifton Park, NY. Belmonte Builders recently won the Capital Region Builders & Remodelers Association (CRBRA) “Best In Building Awards” for the following categories: Best Conceptual Design, Most Creative New Home Feature, Best Community Logo and Best Direct Mailing Campaign.

CRBRA is a professional trade organization whose members are dedicated to following a strict Code of Ethics that provides consumers with the confidence that they are hiring reputable builders, remodelers, suppliers, and home building service providers. The “Best in Building Awards” recognize area builders in numerous categories. Belmonte was recognized for excellence for the following:

Best Conceptual Design (Under 2000 Sq. Ft) – For our community located next to the 1800s-era Victorian village of Round Lake, we retained the architectural vernacular in our new home floor plans by incorporating iconic features discovered on a foot tour of the Village.

Most Creative New Home Feature – For our “sleeping porch” prominent in many of our homes in the McKenzie’s Way community. We stacked the sleeping porch above an existing porch and can be entered through the master bedroom, thereby creating a private oasis for the owner.

Best Community Logo – For our Hillman’s Ridge logo representing a new neighborhood adjacent to the Village of Round Lake; an 1800’s “seaside-style” Victorian architecture village. Architectural design elements for this neighborhood are carried through the logo design.

Best Direct Mail Campaign –  For direct mail and e-mail campaign asking customers to share their experience and provide a photo of their families enjoying their homes. These photos are on display in our main office, showroom, model homes, and more!

We would like to thank CRBRA for honoring Belmonte Builders with these awards and we look forward to continuing to build upon our reputation of building quality custom homes that are as individual as our clients.

Daylily Rescue Event at Saxton Gardens in Saratoga Springs, NY

Belmonte Builders, an award winning builder based in Clifton Park, NY recently initiated a “Daylily Rescue Event” on a property known as Saxton Gardens.  The late Stanley E. Saxton was  a legendary daylily hybridizer and long-time Saratoga Springs resident.  Saxton was a Skidmore Music Professor for more than 40 years who became interested in daylilies while trying to find flowers that would grow at his Adirondack camp. His experimentations and explorations led to the development and registering of hundreds of distinctive daylilies. Peter Saxton, who worked alongside his father, had carried on the daylily business at the corner of State and First streets in Saratoga Springs since his father’s death in 2002 at the age of 97. The Saxton garden included approximately 250,000 daylilies.

After the Saxton family relocated to North Carolina, Peter Belmonte, President of Belmonte Builders acquired the property to be used as a future new home site.  To avoid the destruction of the lilies, the Belmonte team, with the assistance of Lynn Dakin of Saratoga Springs, coordinated the “Daylily Rescue Event”.   The event invited several local non profit organizations including Rebuilding Together Saratoga, Habitat For Humanity, The Heritage Garden Club, Division Street Elementary School, 4-H andSaratoga Row Association to harvest the lilies to be used for fundraising purposes or to be used to beautify projects they are working on in Saratoga County.

The “Daylily Rescue Event” was held the week of June 23rd.  The organizations mentioned were invited to come to the site and harvest an area dedicated to their charity.  It is the hope of Belmonte Builders that the history and uniqueness of these Saratoga born flowers will continue to grow throughout the community from this donation.

Peter Belmonte Receives Chamber Angels Award

An active member since 1993, Peter Belmonte and Belmonte Builders has been a loyal supporter of the Chamber Angels Program for the past fourteen years. In those years, Peter has brought happiness to dozens of underprivileged children and their families on Christmas morning through his sponsorship generosity. Without ever seeing the faces of any of the children who have benefitted from his involvement, Peter continues year after year to step up to the plate to ensure a happier holiday season for so many local kids.

Peter has also been a significant supporter of the Chamber Angels Gala which has benefitted the Chamber Angles Program since 2005. Peter is not only generous with his support, he also encourages his staff and allows them to put in volunteer hours for the Chamber Angels Program during their workday.

It is because of his longtime dedication and commitment to our Southern Saratoga community and our children, it is with great pleasure we present the first ever “Chamber Angels Award” to Peter Belmonte of Belmonte Builders.
