Professional Restoration was formed in 1987 to provide expert technical and practical assistance to contractors, architects, developers, and government agencies concerning the use and maintenance of stone and metals as building materials. The company also performed actual restoration, reparation, and maintenance work on monuments, sculptures, and buildings. The archives of Professional Restoration document approximately sixteen restoration projects in the DC area and includes project files, reports, slides and film footage dating from 1987 to the closing of the company in 2003. Notable projects include the restoration of the Taft Memorial Bridge Lions, the Smithsonian Castle, Jackson Place, and Fort McHenry. The collection is currently unprocessed but a preliminary inventory is available.
