    Regarding the restoration of monumental works, group of statues, fountain memorials, François Bronze can intervene throughout europe.
Systematically, the precaution principle is applied, and a thourough technical auscultation is performed.
    When a piece is not seriously corroded, cracked, weakened (internally and externally), or unsealed, we know that it is better for its preservation if we not dismantle, move or deposit it.
    Bronze is quite resistant to corrosion, but does not stand schocks, and dismantling it increases the probablility of creating cracks and irreversible extra damages.

    Regarding cast iron monuments, the problem is slightly different because this metal is often rusty ans it's necessary to intervene if the structure is badly weakened. Unfortunatly this is a well known issue with fountains; then again, caution is requiered because cast iron is difficult to weld, and might break like glass as a result of a clumsy gesture. Some inapropriate technical choices can be disastrous and lead to irreversible damages to your national metallic monuments.
    But even a very carefull restoration carried out on site, at a reasonnable cost, would always be less dramatic than an arm hanging in the air by a giant crane...

    François Bronze's workshop restores bronze with bronze only, without any use of plastic, that will never have the same coefficient of extension than bronze. Composites would have a disastrous impact on the metal.
