Most recently, they installed a standing seam copper roof and gutters on the dining hall of our Monastery here at Saint Meinrad Archabbey.

“Helming Brothers has worked with the Sisters of Saint Benedict of Ferdinand, IN on various projects over the years, including aluminum and metal roofing replacement and repair. They had done a tremendous job working through the design and budgeting constraints we endure. They do what they say they will do with regard to the completion date, and respect the environment of the Monastery.


Joe Helming has been extremely professional in the way he handles project update meetings and is a professional with history buildings. Joe has helped us tremendously and we have the utmost respect for Helming Brothers. We would highly recommend their services.”

“St. Peter Parish is the second oldest catholic parish in Indiana. Founded in 1818, the parish now worships in its fifth church building which was completed in 1869. The rectory in which I live was built in 1895. In my 15 years here I have discovered that caring for old buildings in an ongoing concern. One of my greatest allies in keeping these old building in top shape has been Helming Bros. Inc. Most recently they painted the church tower and applied new gold leaf to the dome and cross of the tower. Even on a cloudy day the dome stands out brightly to all who drive along Highway 50.


Over the years Helming Brothers has provided St. Peter with quality workmanship. The front porch of my residence needed a new roof. Upon the advice of Joe Helming, it was decided that the support provided for the roof was inadequate and the old wood of the porch was decaying. All of this led to a beautiful makeover of the porch. Because of the architecture, much of the work had to be done by hand. There was no possibility of using already existing products. Today the porch stands strong and as beautiful as the day it was built in 1895.  


The Helmings workers are artists. The work done by this talented group is A-1. They are honest, hard working people who excel in quality. I would personally recommend their services to anyone. The work they have done at St. Peter is available for viewing at any time.”

“Joe Helming and Helming Bros Inc have provided exceptional standing seam roofing systems on projects we have designed. I would recommend them for any roofing project.”

"Livonia Presbyterian Church in Livonia Indiana is listed on the Indiana Register of Historic Sites and Structures. Our first experience with Helming Brothers came when our church suffered storm damage to the steeple. They installed copper roofing and a copper cross gilded with 23¾ K gold leaf. There was also considerable repair work done on the tower base.

Over a two year period, Helming Bros worked with our small, active congregation as we raised funds to recondition ten 11’ x 5’ stained glass windows and a transom. Over the two years, the cleaning and cementing of the interiors & exteriors; replacing some memorial glass nameplates; the re-glazing and painting of mullions; fabricating and installing aluminum frames with ¼” protective plate glass with positive ventilation brought out the beauty of the sanctuary.

The work done for us was excellent. Any concerns or questions were promptly addressed and phone calls were returned in a timely manner. Thus, we recommend them highly."
