Since 1877, many generations of local families, including the Bregenzer family, have attended St. Alphonsus Church in Hopewell, N.J. When the church's roof needed repair, Bregenzer Brothers Inc., Hopewell, was honored to perform the work.

In November 2016, the Bregenzer Brothers crew removed the Pennsylvania slate and installed a Vermont Black slate roof system with Carlisle® WIP® 300HT and Grace Tri-Flex® underlayments. The pole gutters were reframed and wrapped in 20-ounce bare Revere copper, and the steeple was clad in 20-ounce Revere copper in Freedom Gray, each piece customized for an exact fit.

Bregenzer Brothers completed its work in about one month, successfully restoring Hopewell's iconic architectural steeple and skyline that can be seen from many roadways entering the borough.
