In 1985, the Popowski Brothers began in business by purchasing Baltimore inner city real estate in Fells Point, Federal Hill and Butchers Hill.  Those properties were rehabbed and sold at the time which was at the forefront of inner city community redevelopment.

A property owner overlooking Patterson Park suffered a catastrophic fire in 1987 which destroyed his home.  Knowing our work for high quality, Popowski Brothers were contracted to rebuild this property and return the homeowner to the neighborhood he loved.  This was the beginning of Popowski Brothers' dedication to restoring damaged properties for our clients.

In 1988 Popowski Brothers Inc. was founded for the sole purpose of restoring properties damaged by fire, flood, storm or other disasters.  Later in 2003, Popowski Brothers Inc. became PBI Restoration Resources and has continued with a reputation of service and success for thousands of clients.

Over those decades of remediating fire, flood and storm damage, our clients often requested non-disaster related construction work of PBI, and we built a large portfolio of general contracting projects throughout the region. With that shift in focus, PBI Restoration Resources became simply “PBI.”


PBI is a group of highly-trained, experienced professionals utilizing state-of-the-art equipment.  Since our inception, we have made a name for ourselves as a leader in disaster restoration within the Mid-Atlantic region due to our professionalism, knowledge, resources and sensitivity to our clients' needs.

We offer complete commercial disaster recovery services for fire, flood, tornado, hurricane or other perils.  No matter what type of damage, the top priority at PBI is to restore a place of business as quickly as possible to resume day-to-day activities with minimal interruption.

From our locations in Baltimore, D.C., and Northern Virginia, we provide 24/7 emergency service, mitigation and total restoration throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
