St. Joseph Church

American Buildings

Built in the early 1900s, the historic St. Joseph Church in Paris, Arkansas, needed its leaky roof replaced without altering the aesthetics of its existing structure. In addition, the church wanted to find a new roof that would be more durable and require less maintenance over the years. After learning about the benefits of retrofitting using an Architectural Metal Systems (a division of American Buildings Company) Standing Seam roof, the church selected Nabholz Construction Services to install the roofing system.

Despite various challenges, including not having the building’s original plans, Nabholz Construction was able to successfully deconstruct the existing metal tile roof and replace it with a metal Standing Seam roof from Architectural Metal Systems. The complex 8,700 sq. ft. project covered multiple roof levels – a 12:12 pitch, radius roof areas, an octagon roof on a small tower and 120-foot bell tower.

The completed room met and exceeded St. Joseph Church’s expectations. The Church received a functional and attractive roofing system, which also met the requirements of the Historical Registry.

The American Buildings Company Builder was Nabholz Construction Services, with nine offices throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas.
