From old stone walls and brick work to rusty steel, restoration focuses on returning a project to its previous state after damage or a change of any kind. That could be something as severe as fire damage, general age related dirt build up, corrosion or anything else.
Restoration will not change the aspects of a project but will instead return it to the previous state. This in itself can often add value in lots of ways to the project.

Flash Corrosion Prevention
Flash corrosion is the general and rapid corrosion that instantly occurs when metallic items are exposed to the environment. It is also known as flash rusting or flashing. For example: The rust appearing on a wet cast-iron pan that is left to dry in the air.
Metals such as steel, copper and aluminium can flash corrode rapidly after surface preparation.
To help prevent this can also coat surfaces with a corrosion inhibitor protective or passivation layer. This is usually done for items that need to be reworked or repaired preventing flash corrosion and allowing items significantly more time for preparation prior to the application of surface finishes.
