St. Patrick Church - Galveston, TX

Their city was nearly wiped off the map in the devastating Hurricane of 1900, so every renovation decision comes down to a balance of beauty and resilience. The new Petersen metal roof installed on the city’s historic St. Patrick church meets both criteria, helping to secure the structure’s landmark status for decades to come.
